Checked Baggage

If you already have a booked flight, you can check your baggage allowance by retrieving your booking from the Manage My Bookings tab and click on ‘View/Print Itinerary’.

If you do not have a booked flight, you can use the calculator below to view the baggage allowance that applies to all Air Canada, Air Canada rouge and Air Canada Express (includes Jazz, Sky Regional, Air Georgian or Exploits Valley Air) flights. Final baggage allowance and service fees ultimately charged may differ as they are based on the date of ticketing. When an itinerary includes travel with one of our codeshare partners or with another airline, the baggage policies of the other carrier may apply.
