Staff travel information


Same baggage rules applies as per regular full-fare passengers. Refer to

Baggage Policy for Travel from China In order to support the Federal Government in it's efforts to reduce the risk of Federal Law violations due to the importation of counterfeit goods (i.e. 'knock-offs'), Air Canada will be introducing a maximum allowance of one, checked bag per person for non-revenue travel, when traveling on stand-by from China on Air Canada. Please note this represents the maximum allowance permitted, therefore it cannot be exceeded under any circumstances (this means that oversize/overweight pieces will not be accepted). The policy will come in effect on June 1, 2012, and will apply to all stand-by passengers boarding Air Canada flights in China.

Boeing 777-300 (77P) aircrafts -are required to limit their carry-on to one personal item, such as a purse or laptop case. Employees traveling with babies will be able to board the plane with two personal items (i.e. one purse, one diaper bag). Duty Free purchases are not exception and must fit inside your personal item.
