Travel Advisory: Air Canada Modifies Check-in Deadline on Flights within
Canada to Minimum 45 Minutes Prior to Departure
MONTREAL, April 8, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada reminds customers that
starting April 10, 2013 the domestic cut off check-in and baggage drop off
deadline (latest time after which customers can no longer check in or drop off
their baggage) will be increased from 30 minutes to 45 minutes before flight
departure.The revised minimum domestic cut-off deadline applies to all Air
Canada and Air Canada Express flights within Canada, with the exception of
flights leaving TorontoBilly Bishop Airport (YTZ) which remains at 20 minutes.
With these changes, minimum domestic check-in and baggage drop off deadlines
will now be more closely aligned with those of other airlines in Canada.
Air Canada continues to recommend that customers arrive at the airport 90
minutes prior to departure of domestic Canada flights in order to ensure
plenty of time to check in (if not already done online or on a mobile device),
drop off baggage and pass through security.
Air Canada customers are encouraged to save time by checking in online before
leaving for the airport up to 24 hours prior to departure at aircanada.com.
Mobile check-in can also be accessed up to 24 hours prior to departure through
mobile.aircanada.com by clicking on the check-in option on a mobile device.
Customers checking-in online will need to drop off their bags at least 45
minutes before departure time. If travelling with carry-on only, customers may
proceed directly to security and their gate when arriving at the airport.
Air Canada encourages customers to familiarize themselves with check-in and
boarding gate deadlines at aircanada.com to allow for a smooth travel
