Postponing the Flight with Air Canada: Date Change Policy and Fees
Modifying or changing the departure date of a long-awaited flight is not something we like to do, but unfortunately, for reasons beyond their control, many Air Canada passengers find themselves in the obligation to change their travel plans by postponing their departure with Air Canada.
– How much does it cost?
This type of modification is free of charge if the passenger initiates the operation within the day following their initial reservation (24 hours or less after the validation of the purchase of their plane ticket).
Otherwise, Air Canada may also decide not to charge any fees if the passenger requests the modification of his travel date (or its cancellation) even after the end of this period, provided that he proves his inability to take the flight on the scheduled date.
