Air Canada accepts bicycles as checked baggage for a fixed fee of $50 CAD/USD.

Bicycles are accepted on a space available basis only and should be pre-registered at time of booking. [AMZ asins='B00JEILGMK,B00FRG7Q7W,B018FF6EV0,B00FNSS6QY']

Each bicycle counts as one piece of baggage towards the maximum number of checked bags allowed by your fare type.

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.

Bicycles are subject to a fee of $50.00 CA/US (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 and Exploits Valley Air.

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

No other baggage fees apply to bicycles.

A single $50 Fixed Bicycle Fee is waived when you purchase a Latitude, Premium Economy or Business Class fare for travel within Canada, and between Canada and the U.S, or if you are a member of the military.

Aeroplan Elite Status Members may bring, without charge, one bicycle in exchange for each bag allowed by their Elite Status.

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.
