Wildfires in British Columbia

August 20, 2021

Because of wildfires in British Columbia, we understand that you may want to make alternate travel arrangements. If you currently have a reservation, Air Canada has implemented a policy that makes it possible for you to make voluntary changes to your itinerary if:

  • You purchased an Air Canada ticket no later than August 20, 2021 for travel between August 20, 2021 and August 31, 2021.
  • Your itinerary includes a flight to or from Penticton Airport (YYF), Kelowna International Airport (YLW), Kamloops Airport (YKA), or Nanaimo Airport (YCD).

If you are scheduled to travel during the affected period, you can retrieve your booking to change your flight up to two hours before departure, free of charge, to another date within 14 days of your original booking, subject to availability in the cabin you originally purchased. Otherwise, any fare difference will apply.

If you are an interior BC resident displaced from your home due to evacuation and are not carrying any government-issued identification, you will be allowed to travel to/from this region on any domestic connecting flight without sufficient documentation.

If you purchased your ticket with Air Canada Vacations, please contact them directly.

And if you require assistance, you can always contact us directly (1-888-247-2262).
