Air Canada: no animals in baggage compartments until September 12


MONTREAL — Air Canada announces that new requests for pets traveling in the baggage hold of aircraft are no longer accepted, until September 12.

The air carrier justifies its decision by longer than usual delays at airports and by security reasons, in particular for the animals themselves.

For the past few weeks, airlines and airports in many parts of Canada have been struggling with significant flight delays and luggage backlogs, as the number of travelers increases and staff shortages affect customer service. .

Air Canada’s decision follows reports of pets being left for several hours in cages among luggage.

People who nevertheless wish to book a flight and travel with a pet that cannot be present in the cabin with them can inquire with Air Canada Cargo.
