Hockey Stick Packing instructions
Sports equipment bags and cases can’t contain clothing or other personal items. They must be used only to carry sports equipment.

Stick(s) must be packaged in a rigid and/or hard shell container specifically designed for shipping. If not packaged in such a container, sticks must be taped together or in a Hockey Stick Bag.

Items not in a rigid and/or hard shell container 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.

Equipment bags must not contain any clothing.

Skates as your Carry-on Item
Non-removable skate blades:
If brought on board as carry-on baggage, skates must remain in the appropriate travel bag at all times.

NOTE: Japan does not permit ice skates with nonremovable blades as carry-on. These are only accepted as checked baggage.

Removable skate blades:
Removable skate blades are not accepted in carry-on baggage. These must be stored in your checked baggage.
