Air Canada Voted `Best Business to Canada`

Air Canada has again been voted `Best Business
Class to Canada` by the readers of “Business Traveler” magazine. This is the
third year Air Canada has received top honours for its business class service
in the magazine`s 2002 readers` survey. Over the previous eight consecutive
years, Air Canada had won the formerly named `Best Airline for Travel to
Canada` category.

“We are very honoured that over the past decade Air Canada has
consistently been chosen by some of the world`s most discerning, well-
travelled executives as their preferred airline to Canada,” said Marc
Rosenberg, Vice-President, Sales and Product Distribution. “We take pride in
offering business travellers a superior product and are constantly striving to
innovate and earn our customers` loyalty.”

The awards are based on an annual survey of “Business Traveler” readers.
Star Alliance was chosen as the world`s Best Airline Alliance; including Air
Canada`s `Best Business Class to Canada` award, Star Alliance partners earned
top honours in ten categories. Complete results of this year`s reader survey
appear in the magazine`s December/January issue.
