Cancelling an Online Booking

Within 24 hours of purchase, any booking made on aircanada.com can be cancelled online and is fully refundable.

After 24 hours, you can cancel your booking online, provided:

  • you originally booked your flight on aircanada.com,
  • all of your flight segments are eligible for cancellation

You should always be aware, at time of purchase, if your ticket is refundable and under what conditions. Many tickets (e.g. many promotional or seat sale tickets) are non-refundable, while others may be subject to a refund penalty which limits their refundable value.

In the case of a refundable ticket, only the unused portion of the ticket is refundable.
