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
