Carry-on baggage

Who flies with Air Canada, should first read the provisions on the hand luggage and the items that may be in it. Top objects and weapons, as well as insufficiently packaged liquids, must not be carried on board. The maximum size of the hand luggage is 55 x 40 x 23 cm on all connections and in all booking classes. The maximum weight is 10 kg, also on all connections and in each booked class. In addition, a smaller hand bag with the maximum dimensions of 43 x 33 x 16 cm and a maximum of 10 kg weight may be taken into the cabin.

Checked baggage

The free baggage limit varies greatly according to the connections offered by Air Canada. In terms of weight, it is generally true that this is very dependent on the booking class. In Economy Class, a baggage of 23 kg can be carried on inner-European and transatlantic routes (a second costs 100 CA dollars - about 70 Euro); in the premium economy, a second piece of luggage with the same maximum weight, in which Premium Rouge Class and Business Class, on the other hand, two luggage items with a respective weight limit of 32 kg are included. For connections to the rest of the world, the free-luggage limit of Economy Class is generally higher, while on routes within North America there is no free baggage in the lowest booking category. A fee of 25 to 30 CA dollars is to be paid for the first piece of luggage. A maximum total of 158 cm per piece of luggage applies to all lines and all classes.

Other luggage

Anyone who intends to carry musical instruments or sports equipment on his flight with Air Canada should also consider some of the airline's conditions. In principle, she tries to accommodate small instruments as an additional hand luggage, which can be carried on board free of charge if there is sufficient space under the seat. This means that the baggage allowance is to be passed on to the air passenger. Larger instruments and sports equipment that exceed the respective upper limit of luggage due to their weight, size or additional luggage are subject to a charge. Your transport is estimated at up to 100 CA dollars.
