Air Canada has created a new Business Class Check-in area at Toronto Pearson for Premium passengers.
The dedicated concourse is available to passengers in Business Class or those holding select Premium. It has 15 check-in counters, 2 customer service desks, 2 self-serve kiosks, and a dedicated seating area.
Access to the area is available to all Air Canada Business Class, Premium Economy and Premium rouge customers, Altitude Elite 50K and higher members, and Star Alliance Gold members.
Within Business Class Check-in a dedicated Super Elite 100K check-in counter, as well as concierge office, are available for eligible customers. Other Priority customers will continue to have access to Priority Check-in in Aisle 3 for domestic and Aisle 5 for international flights
Air Canada also plans to enhance Priority check-in for passengers in Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary.
Recent innovations for Premium passengers
In addition to Business Class Check-in, Air Canada has recently introduced a series of innovations for Premium passengers.
This includes refurbished Maple Leaf Lounges, a partnership with renowned Canadian chef David Hawksworth to style meals for International Business Class and the Maple Leaf Lounges, enhanced check-in and boarding procedures, new cabin interiors on our wide-body fleet, including next generation lie-flat suites in International Business Class and a designated Premium Economy cabin, and a refined Altitude frequent flyer program.
Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada, said:
“Air Canada is pleased to offer select Premium customers an enhanced level of care, including expedited check-in and concierge services, delivered in a lounge setting through our new Business Class Check-in at our Toronto Pearson global hub. Competition for Premium traffic is intense and we are responding to the expectations of this market segment for a comfortable and convenient airport experience. As the only Canadian carrier offering a Business Class cabin, Air Canada is already the preferred airline of 86 per cent of Canadian business travelers and we are recognized as the only Four-Star international carrier in North America. Along with other product innovations such as our next generation aircraft cabins and restyled Maple Leaf Lounges, Business Class Check-in marks a further evolution of Air Canada’s already industry-leading Premium services.”
