Air Canada transitions to credit card only cabins
September 16, 2014
Please note that our Onboard Café service has been rebranded as Air Canada Café.
On May 1, 2010, Air Canada transitioned to credit card only cabins for all flights where OnBoard Café or Duty-free Boutique products are sold. Air Canada Express flights operated by Jazz followed suit on January 15, 2011. Paying for your on-board purchases is now as easy as one swipe of your major credit card.
If on-board credit card payment is not an option for you, and you’re travelling on a flight of 2 hours or more that does not include complimentary meal service, you can purchase prepaid OnBoard Café vouchers online at any time up to 1 hour before your flight (provided you have not already checked in), and redeem them on board for light meals, snacks and alcoholic beverages. And remember that complimentary non alcoholic beverages are always available on board our flights.
You can also pre-pay for leading brand name items from the wide selection in our on-line Duty-free Boutique, and enjoy having them delivered to you on your next international flight.
