Air Canada Updates

Travel Ready Hub is a guide to help you understand key travel requirements. However, it does not replace the information provided by government and other authorities. While Air Canada makes best efforts to keep this information updated, it is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all entry or transit requirements for each country on your itinerary.

 Automated carry-on baggage sizers

To ensure that your carry-on baggage will fit onboard, Air Canada has introduced automated carry-on baggage sizers pre-security in the Montreal (YUL), Toronto (YYZ), and Vancouver (YVR) airports.

These new, touchless machines are easier and faster to use than the metal sizers. Please make sure that your carry-on bag complies with the sizing to avoid having to check your carry-on bag at the airport. Note that any non-compliant baggage will be assessed and is subject to applicable baggage fees.

This new route is in addition to Air Canada's existing 5 daily non-stop flights between Montreal and Billy Bishop Airport.
