You may cancel your booking online if:

  • You originally booked your flight on aircanada.com or via the Air Canada mobile app

  • You are cancelling your flight at least two hours before departure

Partial cancellation:

If you cancel your booking within 24 hours of purchase, we will refund the value of your ticket or simply cancel the payment transaction.

For cancellations outside of 24 hours, refundability will depend on the fare type you purchased.
