Air Canada Expands Low Online Fares

Air Canada today announced that it has
expanded availability of its low, simplified fares offering consumers and
travel professionals the best value in air fare, to all 80 destinations in the
continental United States served by Air Canada, Air Canada Jazz and on a
codeshare basis by its Star Alliance partner, United Airlines. The expansion
of Air Canada’s simplified fares throughout its extensive Canada-U.S. network
brings its web-exclusive budget Tango fares to more travellers than ever
before, and consolidates the carrier’s position as Canada’s largest provider
of low, competitive fares.Today’s announcement comes just two weeks after Air Canada started to
phase in its new simplified fare structure to offer travellers the simplicity
of choosing from up to six distinctly branded fare products for travel to and
from the United States, as well as across Canada.
  “In response to overwhelmingly positive feedback, we’re immediately
expanding low, simplified fares across our U.S. network,” said Montie Brewer,
Executive Vice President, Commercial. “We’ve redesigned our domestic and U.S.
fare structure, and, to offer customers and travel professionals
clear choices and unbeatable value. This is a customer-driven solution to make
travel affordable and easy, and consolidates Air Canada’s position as Canada’s
largest provider of low fares.”
  The ultra-clear flight display at distinguishes itself
from that of most airlines by showing all travel options on one screen and
allowing customers to easily choose the flight that best meets their travel
needs by date, time and price. Moreover, Air Canada customers can make
complete or partial changes to most reservations directly online. In addition
to the Aeroplan Miles earned on eligible fares, every flight booked at earns one additional Aeroplan Mile for every $3 spent on all
domestic Canada and transborder U.S. travel.
