Air Canada is enforcing their carry on bag policy.

Air Canada will staff check-in and security checkpoints to quickly confirm and tag your carry on bags that meet Air Canada’s existing carry-on dimensions as approved. This will make it easier and safer to stow your personal items on board, may help reduce wait times at security, and will help avoid flight delays caused by larger bags being checked at the gate.

Air Canada’s carry-on requirements have not changed but the process has. It is extremely important for you to communicate this new procedural change to any of your travelers who will be travelling on Air Canada effective May 25, 2015 so that they are not inconvenienced by the time they arrive at the gate with their carry on.

Please allow extra time for check in!

Air Canada Carry On Size Rules

  1. Standard article: 9”x 15.5”x 21.5”
  2. Personal article: 6”x 13”x 17”

If Your Carry on bag Is Not Approved

If a piece of your carry-on baggage needs to be checked, AC will be happy to help with that at check in.

If you get to security and need to check a bag that exceeds allowable size limits, not to worry. AC will give you a special card that will get you quickly back to a check-in agent, and then on to your departure gate.

As a reminder, Air Canada policy allows for two pieces of carry–on, one standard and one personal article:
