Baggage: register non-standard items

If you want to register non-standard items (strollers and baby equipment, mobility aids, medical equipment, sporting equipment) as checked baggage, please do not add these items to the total number of checked pieces during your online check-in. When you arrive at the airport, one of our agents will be pleased to assist you.

Lithium batteries

Lithium batteries are dangerous goods, much like gasoline, propane, and sulfuric acid.
Lithium batteries are used in many electronic devices such as cameras, cell phones, laptops and tablets, electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and other personal vaporizers, drones, medical equipment and power tools.
When carried by passengers for personal use, lithium batteries must be carried in carryon baggage only.
While most lithium batteries are safe, some have overheated and caught fire. These fires are difficult to put out and produce toxic and irritating fumes.

To learn more about lithium batteries, watch this Transport Canada video.


Baggage drop off counter

Baggage drop-off counters close 60 minutes prior to departure time for international flights and 45 minutes prior to domestic flights. Please allow sufficient time for processing and security. If you are not travelling with checked baggage, go directly to the boarding gate before the boarding time indicated on your boarding pass.  Always check the airport monitors for updates.  

Passengers are responsible for obtaining valid travel documents (passport, visa or other required documents) that comply with the entry and exit requirements of any country visited. A passenger who does not hold the required travel documents may be denied boarding or entry into the country of destination. A valid passport is required for travel to all international destinations.

Travelling with a non-Canadian passport: In addition to a valid passport, travellers flying to Canada may need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)  Will open in a separate browser window issued by the Government of Canada.

You can now apply for an eTA or check the passport requirements for your trip using our Travel and Visa Requirements tool.

Please note that Visa Debit and Mastercard Debit cards are not accepted when paying for extra bags in the online check-in process. However, we accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express credit cards.
