Air Canada is announcing a new flight pass, which is designed to give travellers greater flexibility and certainly for travel across the country.
In a release, Canada's largest airline says that the new Infinite Canada Flight Pass will give customers the ultimate in flexibility and certainty for booking travel within Canada.
For one flat fee, pass holders will be able to book travel without blackout or booking restrictions, make changes or cancellations without penalty, and fly as often as desired for up to three months, depending on the duration of the pass purchased.
That's right: you can enjoy unlimited travel within Canada, for one flat monthly rate.
"Air Canada recognizes that as air travel begins to return to normal customers want flexibility and certainty. Our new Infinite Canada Flight Pass provides both by enabling customers to easily book and change their travel plans without any blackout restrictions or change or cancellation fees, while locking in the price of their flights for up to three months with one flat fee. The pass also gives customers the option to choose which class of fare they desire -- Standard, Flex and Latitude -- and allows them to earn Altitude Qualifying Miles," said Lucie Guillemette, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Air Canada.
The Air Canada Infinite Canada Flight Pass is available for purchase in Canada from Sept. 16 to 23.
Starting at $2,000 per month (excluding taxes), passes are available for one, two or three months and customers can choose from three classes of service, Standard, Flex and Latitude. Features include:
- Unlimited number of flights within Canada for one fixed price throughout the duration of the pass;
- Customers are eligible to accumulate Altitude Qualifying Miles;
- Travel can be booked up to one hour before the flight, with no blackout dates or booking restrictions;
- No change or cancellation fees.
Air Canada began mandatory customer pre-flight temperature checks system-wide on May 15. The airline includes the mandatory temperature checks as part of its new Air Canada CleanCare+ program - a comprehensive initiative for personal safety and enhanced aircraft grooming to provide customers greater peace of mind during all stages of travel.
In June, Air Canada has quietly changed its refund policy to allow some customers whose flights were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic to recoup their cash — but not passengers whose trips originated in Canada.
