On this page we attempt to make available the experience of individual bicycle tourists who have travelled with Zoom Airlines.
Update on Canadian airlines
Zoom Airlines went out several years ago, leaving me out $1200. Air Transat still takes bikes but charges $30 per leg of trip. Turn handlebar, remove pedals and remove air from tires. They provide a heavy duty plastic bag with the $30 fee. Remember to chock front wheels straight to frame to prevent damage.

Canadian Airline updates
I observed that the list for bike friendly airlines is still listing Canadian Airlines. They merged with Air Canada several years ago.
Two other Canadian airlines that accept bikes are:
AirTransat – in a bag or box with tires flattened and bars and pedals reversed. No charge as sporting equipment
Zoom Airlines- in a bag or box with tires flattened and bars and pedals reversed. No charge as sporting equipment
