Air Canada Offers e-Boarding Passes & Easier Pre-Check At U.S. Airports

Open Jaw

Air Canada has become the 1st foreign carrier qualified for the TSA’s Pre program which uses features such as dedicated lanes and less intrusive search measures to make it easier for pre-approved travellers to pass through security.

"Air Canada is pleased to now offer customers the convenience of mobile check-in and e-boarding passes at U.S. airports we serve. This will also make it easier for eligible customers to access the TSA Pre™ program, a welcome smart security initiative that saves time and avoids cumbersome requirements such as removing shoes and belts," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.

"For frequent business travellers TSA Pre™ is attractive because many already have Nexus or other recognized security documents to qualify. As the only foreign airline approved for TSA Pre™, it is another way Air Canada is distinguishing itself in the transborder business market," Smith said.

Electronic boarding passes are now or soon-to-be available for all 52 U.S. airports that AC serves, allowing customers to complete their web check-in and obtain their boarding pass via e-mail or text message.

Customers who are eligible for pre-check will no longer be required to print their boarding pass at the airport with an AC agent or from an AC self-service check-in kiosk to take advantage of expedited security clearance.
