Effective immediately, Air Canada has
implemented a policy providing customers holding discounted tickets greater
flexibility to make changes to future travel dates. The policy has been
implemented in recognition of increasing customer uncertainty regarding travel
in view of impending military conflict with Iraq and applies to travel on Air
Canada, Air Canada Jazz, Tango and Air Canada codeshare flights operated by
ZIP and Star Alliance partners as well as Aeroplan reward travel.
Effective immediately, customers holding discounted tickets for travel
to/from the United States or international destinations during the next 30
days may change their travel dates without penalty, with all travel completed
by December 31, 2003.
Also effective immediately, customers who have commenced travel to the
United States or international destinations on discounted tickets and now wish
to return earlier than planned to Canada or their point of origin may also re-
book their travel at no penalty.
Regular travel restrictions on discounted tickets continue to apply for
travel within Canada.
To be eligible, customers who choose to postpone their travel need to
contact Air Canada Reservations at 1-888-247-2262 or their travel agent prior
to their originally scheduled departure date. Future reservations are subject
to availability and applicable fare rules.
Air Canada continues to monitor developments closely and will communicate
any further changes to its policies, as necessary.
