April 26, 2006
Air Canada has just made its everyday
low Tango fare even more affordable. With the launch today of its GO Discount, Air Canada customers choosing Tango fares can save a further $10 (USD$8) each way, or $20 (USD$16) round

Canada customers booking a Tango fare will be eligible for

"The ability for customers to choose what is relevant for them is a key
driver in Air Canada's ongoing simplification of fares and products," said
Sean Menke, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. "A la carte
pricing is about putting control in the hands of our customers, and the GO
Discount allows us to pass on savings to customers who opt out of features
they don't want when purchasing an air fare. Air Canada is leading the way in
making air travel simpler and value-driven with our customers' preferences top
Tango, Air Canada's everyday low no-frills fare available on all flights
within Canada and the continental United States, normally allows unlimited
changes anytime for $30 plus an additional fare difference if applicable. By
opting out of this feature to obtain a GO Discount, customers agree not to
make itinerary changes. However, a Tango fare still allows for a $150 flat fee
for same-day changes at the airport, with no additional charges for fare

Canada and the continental United States - Tango Plus, Latitude, Latitude Plus
and Executive Class - offer increasing benefits at incrementally higher fare
levels: more booking flexibility, complimentary advance seat selection, more
Aeroplan Miles and more perks including complimentary onboard snack and
sandwich, Maple Leaf Lounge access, upgrade eligibility and priority services.
