Air Canada is running its discount program for motorcycle shipping again in 2018, and they’ve just determined the prices.
In the past few years, Air Canada has been running a promotion that allows riders to ship their motorcycles in the cargo holds of widebody jets. We’ve had several CMG readers who’ve used the service, and while there’s been some confusion over pricing in the past, most have been happy with the service and pricing.
Now, Air Canada says it’s offering the program again, for its usual May 1-September 30 season. But unlike years past, which saw the airline offering flat rates through its promotional materials, customers must now call in to get pricing on flights. And, we’ve been told that the price tag is higher this year, thanks to increases in the cost of jet fuel.
Remember, Air Canada only offers this service to specific destinations. In the past, South America has been on the list, then off the list, thanks to issues with government red tape on the other end. However, flights to Europe and inside Canada should be back on as usual. For more details on how to prep your bike, where you can fly to, and how much it will cost, your best bet is to contact Air Canada after checking out their documents on the shipping process.
