Travel light and Tango for less with Air Canada's 'GO Discount'
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 trip, if they travel light and don't change their plans. Starting today, Air Canada customers booking a Tango fare will be eligible for up to $20 savings on their return trip if they agree not to make any changes to their booked itinerary, and agree to fly without checked baggage, within the normal carry-on bag allowance only. To obtain the discount, customers simply click on the GO Discount Tango fare option when making their online booking.
"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 of mind."
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 difference.
Air Canada's four other simplified fares available for all flights within 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.
Air Canada allows customers to carry on board a total of two items within certain dimensions and weight limits as follows: one standard article 23cm x 40cm x 55cm for a maximum of 10 kg, plus one personal article 16cm x 33cm x 43cm for a maximum 10 kg. More information on carry-on baggage is available at aircanada.com/en/travelinfo/airport/baggage/carry-on.html. Oversize or overweight baggage is subject to excess baggage fees.
