Receive your boarding pass on your mobile device
NEW! As of July 10 you can now receive your Electronic Boarding Pass on your Apple iPhone or iPhone3G when you do a Web Check-In.
Now, when you use Web Check-in online at aircanada.com, you can choose to receive an electronic boarding pass on your cell phone or PDA (personal digital assistant such as Blackberrry or Treo) on select flights*.
It’s easy. The next time you check in online from any computer, you’ll be asked to enter the number of the mobile device where you’d like your boarding pass to be sent. Just enter your mobile number to receive two messages directly on your cell phone or PDA, enabling you to pass through security and board your flight…paper free!
Don’t have access to a computer? You can check-in directly from most mobile devices using our mobile check-in service at mobile.aircanada.com. Remember to visit a baggage drop off point prior to security screening if you have any baggage to check.
Still prefer a printed boarding pass? Just select that option when you check in online, or visit an airport kiosk to print a back-up copy of your boarding pass if ever you need one.
*Note: Air Canada's new mobile service is currently available for boarding domestic Canada flights and departures to international (non-U.S.) destinations, including connecting flights, from 60 airports across Canada served by Air Canada and Air Canada Express (operated by Jazz only). Your electronic boarding pass will be sent to you as SMS text messages, one with a barcode that will be scanned by an Air Canada agent prior to boarding your flight. While 2-D barcode technology works on a majority of mobile devices, some older phones or PDAs may not be compatible. If this is the case, it is still possible to use Air Canada's mobile check-in and print a boarding pass at a self-service kiosk or with an agent. You may not use an electronic boarding pass when traveling with infants or when traveling to/from destinations in the United States.
