Air Canada has adjusted its checked baggage policy for Canadian, Caribbean and Mexican travel.
Customers purchasing economy class tickets for travel on or after Jan. 19, 2011, on Canadian, Caribbean, Costa Rican and Mexican flights will now be charged $20 for a second checked bag.
Economy class customers will still be able to check one bag for free, in addition to permitted carry-on baggage.
Air Canada’s second-bag policy for flights to and from the U.S., Europe and other international destinations remains unchanged.
The new fee will not apply to Air Canada Prestige, Elite, Super Elite members or Star Alliance Silver and Gold members.
Executive Class and Executive First customers will still be allowed three checked bags on all flights, regardless of destination.
