Air Canada Bikes Policy

Bicycles are accepted on a space available basis only and should be pre-registered at time of booking.
Each bicycle counts as one piece of baggage towards the maximum number of checked bags allowed by your fare type.

Waivers
No overweight or oversize charges apply to bicycles, provided they are within the following maximum weight and size limits*:

Maximum weight: 32kg (70lb)
Maximum linear dimensions: 292cm (115in)

*Air Canada Cargo handles the shipment of bicycles that exceed the maximum weight and/or size limits listed above.

Charges
If your baggage count (bicycle + number of bags to be checked) exceeds the maximum number of items allowed by your fare type, additional checked baggage charges will apply, in addition to the fixed handling charge.

Bicycles are subject to a handling charge of $50 CAD/USD (plus applicable taxes) for carriage on Air Canada and Air Canada rouge flights, as well as on Air Canada Express flights operated by Jazz, Sky Regional, Air Georgian and Exploits Valley Air).

The handling charge applies to one-way flights and for each way of travel on round-trip and multi-segment flights.

A single fixed handling charge is waived for customers who purchase a Latitude or Business Class fare for travel within Canada, and between Canada and the US. Additional checked baggage rules still apply.

Packing instructions
The bicycle must be placed - with handlebars fixed sideways and pedals removed - in a rigid and/or hard shell container specifically designed for shipping or in a bicycle suitcase (in the case of collapsible bicycles). Tires must be partially deflated.

If otherwise packaged, the bicycle may be refused for carriage. Air Canada is not liable if and to the extent that any damage results from the inherent defect, quality or vice of the baggage.
