Air Canada introduces Economy Basic Fares

Air Canada introduced Economy Basic fares to its suite of economy fare brands available on select North American markets. Given the economic landscape, our longstanding position is to remain competitive in all markets we serve to compete with the Ultra Low Cost Carrier (ULCC).

Economy Basic is Air Canada’s lowest fare type. The new Economy Basic fare provides customers with a fare at a lower price point than ever before, with certain restrictions. Economy Basic will offer customers complimentary carry-on baggage, in addition to Air Canada’s renowned onboard experience (including individual seat-back in-flight entertainment). Snacks, drinks and meals are available for purchase. There are no flight changes, and no cancellations available and you will not earn Aeroplan Miles, or miles / points with other partner frequent flyer. This fare type is available for booking on Air Canada channels only.

How does Economy Basic differ from Economy Tango?

With Economy Tango, customers benefit from Air Canada’s renowned onboard experience at a low price with greater flexibility than Economy Basic, including the ability to make changes at any time for a fee and accumulate miles.
