*Free ski carriage = If you have not rented skis through Ski Independence, then we will have pre-registered your free ski carriage with Air Canada for you. All customers will have to go to the bag drop at the airport to get baggage tags, rather than using the self-service check-in facility. NB: if you use the airport self-service check-in facility you would be prompted to pay for the ski carriage! If you take ski equipment (skis + poles + boots or snowboard + boots) then this extra bag can now be taken as a FREE item. Please note that if you are travelling with skis and boots, and your ski boots are carried in a separate bag to your skis, the extra bag charge is waived. If you are NOT taking skis or snowboards, but are taking boots in a separate boot-bag, then this boot-bag is now regarded as a FREE item. NB: the FREE ski carriage policy may not apply to non-continuous flight itineraries for onward travel within Canada – for example if you stop over for a night(s) in Vancouver en-route to your final destination, then normal extra baggage fees may apply for the internal flight within Canada.

NB: if you are travelling outbound on a UK domestic flight to Heathrow with BA, the free ski carriage does not apply to the outward journey = please see section: ‘British Airways UK domestic connections >> Air Canada transatlantic flights’ below.

Baggage allowance for separate tickets for domestic flights within CanadaEconomy = FREE checked baggage allowance is 1 piece – max. 23kg (2nd piece – max. 23kg is $35 each way). Executive First = FREE checked baggage allowance is 2 pieces – max. 32kg per piece (3rd piece – max. 32kg is $100 each way). Prices are subject to change.

Baggage allowance (British Airways UK domestic connections >> Air Canada transatlantic flights) = The baggage allowance is dictated by the airline you check-in with. For example: a Manchester departure on British Airways (UK domestic flight) connecting at Heathrow onto an Air Canada transatlantic flight would mean the BA baggage policy would apply outbound (and vice-versa on the inbound).
