On My WayTM
The new name for peace of mind...

Unpredictable weather conditions, airport and air traffic delays... at some point we've all experienced the frustration of a flight delay or travel disruption that is out of our hands.

At Air Canada, we understand how frustrating such situations can be and we respond like any responsible airline would: by working hard to rebook you on the first available flight out so you can get to your destination as quickly as possible.

But Air Canada goes one step further by offering On My Way, a unique service in North America, that goes beyond what airlines normally do, so you'll always be prepared, no matter what setback you encounter.


Without On My Way

Rebooking on any North American airline


Limited to searching for seats on the next available flight with your current airline or one of its partners. Choice is based on the airline's criteria.


We'll get you on the very next available flight of your choosing, with Air Canada, one of its partners (e.g. Jazz), or any other North American airline*.

Complimentary meal allowance, hotel accommodation or ground transportation for ANY extended delay


Standard service does not provide for additional expenses for disruptions outside the airline's control.


Whatever the reason, our qualified On My Way agents will pull out all the stops to get you back on your way. And you can count on us to arrange for meals, car rental and hotel accommodations if you're forced to stay put. We'll even pick up the tab!

Specialized call centre assistance tailored to your needs


Standard 24/7 service provided through general support centres


Priority access to our team of specially-trained Air Canada On My Way agents who are available around the clock to assist you with all your unexpected travel needs.

* Rebooking will be made on the first available flight on Air Canada, Jazz, or any other scheduled North American airline. View list of scheduled North American airlines.
