Frequently asked questions

Are meals always available with Air Canada Bistro?

Meals are not available for purchase on flights departing after 10 pm. On those flights, you'll be able to choose from a selection of beverages and snacks.

Also, the availability of hot meals on our Embraer aircraft is limited.

Can I order a special meal on flights where Air Canada Bistro is offered?

Special meals are not available on flights where Air Canada Bistro is offered. However, we make every effort to present a variety of choices catering to different tastes and requirements, including a wide selection of Kosher-certified products.

I’d like to bring my own self-heating meal to eat on board. Is that ok?

Meals-Ready-to-Eat (MRE) and other self-heating meal and beverage kits with portable heating systems/ration heaters are not permitted on board at any time. Nor are they permitted in either checked or carry-on baggage.

I brought my own alcohol. Can I drink it on the plane?

Although you can carry on board any alcohol purchased at the duty-free shop, or alcohol in bottles of no more than 100 ml, these cannot be consumed on the plane.

I’m travelling on an International flight. Do I need to purchase food?

Complimentary meal service is offered on all direct non-stop international flights.

And when you travel on a direct international flight that includes a stop in a Canadian city, you’ll be offered a complimentary meal and snack on the domestic portion of your flight, in those itineraries where both the international and domestic flights have the same flight number. For example, if you’re travelling from Toronto to Sydney, Australia with a stop in Vancouver, a complimentary meal and snack will be offered to you on the Toronto-Vancouver portion of your itinerary.
