A federal website says Air Canada Flight 1129 from Toronto to Saskatoon on May 29 transported a person found to have the novel coronavirus.

One day later, WestJet Flight 3370 from Calgary to Saskatoon carried a passenger later found to have been infectious.

The website said rows four to 10 of the WestJet flight were affected. Row information on the Air Canada flight was not provided.
