Take advantage of same-day standby

May 16, 2023

Because of anticipated airport congestion over the next few weeks, Air Canada is offering the option to stand by for an earlier flight on the same day of travel if: 

  • You purchase an Air Canada ticket no later than May 25, 2023, for travel between May 16-25, 2023. 
  • Your itinerary includes a flight to or from Canada and the United States.

If you are scheduled to travel during the affected period, you can stand by on an earlier flight with the same origin and destination and on the same day of travel, free of charge, when you check in for your flight online, on our mobile app or at the airport.
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).
