10 November, 2016 -

The Government of Canada has introduced a new entry requirement known as Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), for visa exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid visa.

The form for this new admittance procedure needs to be filled out by eligible travellers at Canada.ca/eTA, prior to their trip to Canada, as it will be required to board their flight.

This authorization is mandatory as of November 10, 2016.

eTA eligible applicants must have a valid passport, email address and credit card (CA $7) to complete the online form; authorization is usually received within minutes.

It is strongly recommended that eligible travellers apply for the eTA at the time of booking and to verify the status of the application on the Government of Canada official website at the following address: Canada.ca/eTA. It is also recommended to check-in at least three hours prior to departure.

On-board

Air Transat strives to provide a safe and secure environment on board our aircraft for you, your fellow passengers and our crewmembers. In this section, we outline the types of behaviour that are considered disorderly and the penalties imposed by law.

Anyone in contravention of the law or violating the rights of others will be intercepted by the police upon landing, and could face fines of up to CA $100,000, a jail sentence of up to five years, or both.

Under the Criminal Code of Canada and the Aeronautics Act, it is illegal to behave in a threatening manner. The crew will not tolerate any disorderly behaviour on board the aircraft.

Examples of interference:

  • Harassment
  • Verbal abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual offences
  • Intimidating behaviour
  • Intoxicated and disorderly conduct
  • Disregard of smoking regulations, including electronic cigarettes
  • Consuming carry-on or duty-free alcoholic beverages
  • Refusal to follow instructions of the crew
  • Endangering the safety of the aircraft
