New checked baggage policy for military personnel
May 29, 2014
Effective immediately, members of the Canadian and U.S. military will benefit from an enhanced baggage allowance whenever they travel on a flight operated by Air Canada, Air Canada rouge or Air Canada Express. Eligible active and retired members of the Canadian and U.S. military are entitled to up to three pieces of checked baggage, each weighing up to 32 kg (70 lb) each.
If you are an eligible customer, please proceed as follows to benefit from this enhanced baggage allowance:
- When prompted at check-in (online, on your mobile or at an airport kiosk), indicate that you are travelling without checked bags.
- At the airport, see an Air Canada agent to have your bags tagged and checked free of charge, upon presentation of military identification.
