Air Canada Stopover

Air Canada Stopover

Make an adventure out of a stopover.

Is your connection time longer than six hours? Then the Air Canada Stopover travel option allows you to make the most of two consecutive flights and enhance your journey – and at no cost or for a flat price. The Air Canada Stopover option includes one-night hotel accommodation and applicable taxes for one low price. The Canadian break comes with no additional airfare and your hotel is free with a Business Class, Premium Economy or Latitude fare and, for a minimal fee, with a Flex or Tango fare.

Relax between flights and visit Canada at no additional airfare. If you’re travelling with Air Canada, in addition to ease of travel, you now have the unique opportunity to sample and explore exciting Canadian cities en route to your destination.

Break your journey in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, North America’s most convenient hubs, and stay one night in Canada. You can even opt for a second Canadian stopover on your return flight.

If you’re travelling with less time on your hands, and your connections are under six hours, you can enjoy the comforts of Maple Leaf Lounge access at the airport.
