Air Canada is Canada’s largest airline and the largest provider of scheduled passenger services in the Canadian market, the Canada-U.S. transborder market and in the international market to and from Canada.  In 2011, Air Canada together with its Air Canada Express regional partners carried more than 33 million passengers, offering direct passenger service to more than 175 destinations on five continents.   Air Canada is a founding member of Star Alliance™, providing the world's most comprehensive air transportation network.

Air Canada's predecessor, Trans-Canada Air Lines (TCA) inaugurated its first flight 75 years ago, on September 1, 1937. The 50-minute flight aboard a Lockheed L-10A carried two passengers and mail between Vancouver and Seattle. By 1964, TCA had grown to become Canada's national airline; it changed its name to Air Canada. The airline became fully privatized in 1989. Air Canada shares are traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) under the symbol “AC-B.TO”.

Air Canada is the 15th largest commercial airline in the world and employs 27,000 people.  Its corporate headquarters are located in Montreal.

June 30, 2014

 
Air Canada will operate daily flights between Toronto-Pearson and Tokyo-Haneda from July 1, using the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
The year-round service will be the first non-stop flight between Canada and Tokyo-Haneda, and the first daytime flight to North America for the Japanese airport.

 

The carrier already operates flights from Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver to Tokyo’s Narita Airport.

 

It is the first time Air Canada will deploy its 787 on an Asian route.

 

The airline is due to begin taking delivery of its 37 Dreamliners next spring.

 

Flight AC005 will depart Toronto at 1.00pm, arriving in Tokyo at 2.55pm the following day. The return flight, AC006, will depart Tokyo at 5.40pm and touch down in Toronto at 4.40pm.

The Canadien Press - Feb.2, 2013

 
AIR CANADA LAUNCHES REGIONAL SERVICE WITH BOMBARDIER Q400S

Plans to use larger planes to increase capacity on key routes.

Air Canada launched its regional service in rival WestJet's backyard on Friday with the introduction of Bombardier Q400 turboprops.

The Montreal-based carrier said the first flights connected Calgary to Fort McMurray, Alta., Regina and Saskatoon. Nine additional routes will be added over the coming months.

Calgary-based WestJet was slated to announce in January its own regional service plans using the Q400 turboprops but that has been delayed until sometime in February. The 76-seat Q400 planes will be operated by Jazz Aviation under the Air Canada Express brand and replace 50-seat CRJ100/200 jets.

The company reports its quarterly results Feb. 6.

WestJet Encore will initially service either eastern or western routes starting in the second half of 2013, followed nine months later by the other half of the country. It expects to add up to 45 Q400s over five years.

WestJet president Gregg Saretsky has said the service will reduce airfares on regional routes by about half of the full fare.

Air Canada has vowed to respond to lower fares promised by WestJet with its new regional service.

Meanwhile, the airline's low-cost carrier has begun hiring the first 150 flight attendants based in Toronto for the July 1 launch of service to Europe and the Caribbean.

Air Canada Rouge will begin operations with two Boeing 767-300ER and two Airbus A319 aircraft that will be released from Air Canada's mainline fleet. Additional planes will be added as Air Canada starts to take delivery of new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft in 2014, ramping up to 50 planes.

Timing of the Boeing 787 deliveries have been questioned because of a suspected battery problem that has grounded the worldwide fleet.

The discount airline will start with flights from Toronto to Venice, Italy and Edinburgh, Scotland -- two destinations that currently aren't served by Air Canada, and will serve Athens, Greece from Toronto and Montreal.

Air Canada's existing flights to Cuba, the Dominican Republican, Jamaica and Costa Rica will be flown by the discount carrier from Toronto.


Canada has been named Best Airline in North America in the Skytrax 2014 World Airline Awards at the Farnborough International Airshow for the fifth year in a row. 

The award was bestowed to the airline based on the findings of the Skytrax survey which included 19 million respondents.

Air Canada president and chief executive Calin Rovinescu said that he was very proud of the airline.

“Being the Best Airline in North America also places Air Canada among the leading airlines of the world and sets the bar very high to continue improving,” Mr Rovinescu said.

“We are delighted to have established a leadership position in such a global industry from a Canadian base,

“This award also reflects what more than 35 million customers tell us each year through their greatly appreciated loyalty: that Air Canada is one of the safest, most comfortable and convenient airlines to fly,

“I thank our 27,000 employees around the world, who all share in winning this award, for their professionalism and dedication.”

Passports Now Required For US Travel

Air Canada reminds air travelers that new document requirements will come into effect January 23, 2007, as per the United States' Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI). At this time, all passengers including Canadian and U.S. citizens will be required to present a valid passport when traveling by air to the United States.

We strongly recommend customers who do not hold valid passports apply for new passports well in advance of travel plans.

This new regulation is a change from prior requirements. Effective January 23, 2007, driver licenses and other government-issued photo identification will no longer be accepted as valid travel documentation for Canadian and U.S. citizens traveling by air between Canada and the United States. Alternatively, NEXUS Air cards will be accepted by U.S. authorities when traveling by air from Vancouver International Airport to the United States.

Additional information on Canada-U.S. border regulations is available from the Canada Border Services Agency www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca. Information on Canadian passport applications is available from Passport Canada www.pptc.gc.ca.

New Carry-On Baggage Restrictions

Air Canada advises customers to keep in mind revised security measures when preparing to travel.The limited liquid, gel and aerosol carry-on rules previously applicable at Canadian and U.S. airports, including flights to/from Australia via Honolulu, have been extended effective November 6 to all European Union (EU) airports including the U.K. Regulations vary from country to country and travelers are advised to consult local authorities for other destinations.

Effective November 6, the maximum quantity of liquids, gels and aerosols permitted in carry-on baggage has been increased to 100ml/100g (3.4 oz.) per article. These items must be placed in one clear, closed and re-sealable plastic bag no larger than one litre (one quart). There is a limit of one bag per person, which must be removed from carry-on luggage and placed separately in a screening bin at airport security.

Unsealed, open, coloured or opaque plastic bags of any size with liquids, gels or aerosols in containers of any size will not be permitted through pre-boarding security screening in carry-on baggage. Similarly, liquids, gels or aerosols in containers larger than 100ml/100g (3.4 oz) will not be permitted through security screening as carry-on.

Items exempt from the above restrictions include baby formula, baby food and milk for passengers traveling with babies and under and prescription and essential non-prescription medicines.

Please note that passengers on flights connecting via EU countries (including the U.K.) are reminded not to purchase liquids and gels on board the aircraft or in the sterile areas of an airport that will not be consumed prior to their connecting flights, duty free or otherwise, as passengers will not have access to their checked baggage in order to store these items. Such items will not be permitted through the screening point for connecting flights.

Passengers on flights departing the U.K. are reminded that U.K. authorities allow a single carry-on piece of baggage in the cabin that measures 23cm x 40cm x 55cm. On all other flights, Air Canada allows a maximum of one standard article 23cm x 40cm x 55cm weighing a maximum of 10 kg, and one personal article 16cm x 33cm x 43cm weighing a maximum of 10 kg.
