Air Canada has launched its traditional Boxing Day sale that is valid for travel from Canada through June 30, 2021.
You can save 25% off the BASE FARE (not those nasty carrier surcharges) on all cabins if ticketed by December 8.
You can access this offer on Air Canada’s website here.
Note that the discount is only off of the BASE FARE. The biggest fare component on many international itineraries is the CARRIER SURCHARGE that these discount codes won’t apply to.
Here’s the offer in detail:
- Book by December 28, 2020 at 11:59 pm from your city of departure in Canada.
- Valid on all Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class base fares.
- Travel valid between December 26, 2020 and June 30, 2021.
- Subject to availability at time of booking.
- Valid on certain codeshare flights only
- Multi-city itineraries are not permitted.
This exceptional offer applies only to the following routes:
- Canada <-> All destinations
I would be very hesitant to buy Air Canada tickets, one of the few major airlines that have refused to refund tickets for services it has canceled, offering merely credits.
Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) is effectively in bed with the airlines and doesn’t care about consumer protection. They have ruled that it is “fair” for the airlines to keep the consumers’ cash for canceled flights.
Obviously, Canadian airlines have refunded flights ex-Europe (EC 261/2004 applies) and those to/from/via United States (DOT rules). Quite an irony!
Here are the terms and conditions of this sale:
This offer is available on new bookings only. The discount applies on undiscounted Air Canada published fares when booking on aircanada.com and cannot be combined with any other discount offer. Some of our previously discounted fares, while not eligible for the promotion, may be lower than the final price of the undiscounted fare to which the promotion applies. The discount applies to the base fare only, which form part of the applicable air transportation charges. Surcharges, which are also included in the air transportation charges, as well as applicable taxes, fees and charges are not discounted. Maximum 9 passengers per booking. This offer is valid on flights operated by Air Canada, Air Canada Rouge and Air Canada ExpressTM carriers (Jazz Aviation LP, Sky Regional Airlines Inc., Air Georgian or Exploits Valley Air Services LTD).
