Situation in Israel

December 22, 2023

Given the evolving situation in Israel, Air Canada is temporarily cancelling flights to Tel Aviv as of Sun, Oct. 8. We are monitoring this dynamic situation closely and we will adjust these plans as required. We remain in contact with the Canadian government. Air Canada will resume operations to Tel Aviv as soon as the situation stabilizes.

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 October 12, 2023, for travel between October 7 and February 29, 2024.
  • Your itinerary includes a flight to, from or via Tel Aviv (TLV).

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 between now and April 30, 2024, subject to availability in the cabin you originally purchased on your Air Canada flight. Otherwise, any fare difference will apply.

If you choose to cancel your trip, you will receive a full refund.

Alternative destination

You can also choose to fly to/from another destination. You will not be charged any change fees, but any fare difference will apply.


If you purchased your ticket with Air Canada Vacations, please reach out to them directly.

And if you require assistance, you can contact us at 1-888-247-2262 (or 1 800 361-5373 if yours is an Aeroplan flight reward).
