R.PR.A.Air Canada Introduces Lowest Price Guarantee to Assure Customers of 
Best Available Price On-Line 
MONTREAL, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada is expanding its Lowest 
Price Guarantee to give customers added assurance they are getting the lowest 
price available on-line within a 24-hour period when they book flights on Air 
Canada. The guarantee applies to any destination Air Canada serves for tickets 
bought in Canada on aircanada.com. 
"Air Canada's new Lowest Price Guarantee means customers can be certain they 
will always get the best price for their Air Canada flight at aircanada.com. 
With the proliferation of travel websites the market can be confusing, so to 
make it easy for customers and give them confidence they are getting the 
lowest price available online we are expanding our existing North American 
fare guarantee to cover our entire global network. Our promise to our 
customers is that by going to aircanada.com they are guaranteed of always 
finding the lowest prices for wherever we fly and if they find the same flight 
elsewhere in Canada at a lower price within 24 hours we will provide a $50 
travel credit plus the price difference," said Ben Smith, Executive Vice 
President and Chief Commercial Officer at Air Canada. 
Here are the highlights of how our Lowest Price Guarantee works. 


    --  It is available to all consumers and travel agencies purchasing
        tickets in Canada for Canadian originating flights on Air
        Canada, Air Canada rouge or Air Canada Express flights operated
        by Sky Regional or Jazz Aviation LP through
        aircanada.com
    --  If, within 24 hours of purchase, the customer finds a cheaper
        price for the same flight, itinerary and fare brand on another
        Canadian online travel retailer, then Air Canada will provide a
        travel credit for $50 plus the price difference, which can be
        applied towards future travel. Air Canada's policy of allowing
        customers to cancel any flight and receive a full refund within
        24 hours of booking remains in effect.
    --  Customers and travel agencies who find a lower price can easily
        notify Air Canada on-line and are not required to buy the lower
        fare.
    --  The program covers all travel within Air Canada's network on
        flights marketed and operated by Air Canada, Air Canada rouge
        and Air Canada Express flights. It is available for all
        published retail fares sold in Canada by any Canadian online
        retail distribution channel that is an accredited vendor of Air
        Canada
    --  Travel Agents also have access to the Lowest Price Guarantee
        when booking on Air Canada's travel agency website
