Electronic Ticket
Electronic ticketing, also known as e-ticketing, makes your entire travel experience easy, safe and efficient. An electronic ticket is an electronically issued passenger ticket. Your ticket information is stored in the airline's computer system, thus eliminating the need to carry a paper ticket.

Here's how it works:

  • Book, pay and issue your electronic ticket(s) on www.aircanada.com for any eligible itinerary or ask your travel agent for an e-ticket.
  • Have your itinerary/receipt e-mailed, faxed, mailed or issued to you in person and have it with you at the airport for security and customs-immigration purposes;
  • Use your e-ticket to reserve an assigned seat or to check in using Air Canada’s convenient self-service Web Check-In or Express Check-In Kiosks, or present a copy of your itinerary/receipt and appropriate ID to an agent at the Air Canada check-in counter.
  • Reserve an assigned seat;
  • Tickets may be purchased up to one hour before departure(two hours before when booking online);
  • All matters involving Upgrade certificates, additional checked baggage and other special services will be processed as usual.

Electronic ticketing is now available throughout Canada and the U.S., as well as for most international destinations.

Electronic ticket partners

With the implementation of Interline Electronic Ticketing (IET), passengers travelling on more than one airline can travel with one single electronic document. Air Canada currently offers Interline e-tickets with most of its Star Alliance partners as well as many other carriers, thus offering its customers a global, seamless Star E-ticket product.
