Surfboards are accepted by Air Canada as checked luggage.

One board or one bag containing a surfboard counts as one piece of baggage towards the maximum number of checked bags allowed by your fare type. You will be charged a flat fee of $100 CAD/USD. Please note that only ONE board is allowed - TWO handling fees will be charged if 2 boards are packed in the same bag! [AMZ asins='B00HTA1Z6C,B00GGPK0V2,B00NIYJF6U,B0053TGSK4']

Air Canada Surfboard Fee 2023
Surfboards are subject to a fee of $100.00 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 flight.

NOTE: Two fees apply for two (2) boards packed in the same container.

No other baggage fees apply to surfboards.

No oversize charge applies to surfboards, provided they do not exceed the maximum length and width stated above.

A single fixed Surfboard 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 surfboard in place for each bag allowed by their Elite Status.

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

The following will be accepted:
Surfboards packed in a rigid and/or hard-shell container specifically designed for shipping/travel, or surfboards packed in a soft-sided surf travel bag. Air Canada will not be responsible if the board is damaged if packed in a soft-sided bag. Fins must be removed from the boards.

Keep in mind that Air Canada charges PER BOARD, and two fees may be charged if there are 2 boards in the same bag. It is unlikely you will be asked to open up the bag at check-in but it may happen, so keep that in mind if planning to fly with 2 or more surfboards in the same bag.
