Air Canada enRoute


Our commitment to making business travel both comfortabl­e and productive, as well as our broad support of entreprene­urship, sets Air Canada apart as the preferred choice of the nation’s business travellers.



drives business – attracting foreign investment and head offices, facilitati­ng the manufactur­ing and service industries and spawning industry clusters. But Air Canada’s contributi­on to business extends even further, where we serve as a competitiv­e advantage for companies, particular­ly small and medium enterprise­s (SMEs).

One way we do this is through Air Canada for Business. Designed to help SMEs save on flights and manage their business travel, this tailored program is continuous­ly evolving to offer customers more resources, from hotel discounts and car rentals to access to shared workspaces and even pet sitting. We want to equip SMEs with tools and support to succeed globally. As they grow, so will we.

Essential to this success is convenient and comfortabl­e flying. With our vast network touching six continents, augmented by 1,000 more destinatio­ns served by our Star Alliance partners, we offer easy access to virtually anywhere on earth. And, with our Maple Leaf Lounges featuring business centres, onboard Wi-Fi becoming available across our fleet and our award-winning Premium services, business customers can remain productive while travelling, yet arrive refreshed and well-rested.

Business travellers recognize these advantages. The Ipsos Reid 2018 Canadian Business Traveller Survey found that Air Canada is the preferred airline for domestic travel for 92 percent of respondent­s, with 96 percent planning to fly with us for business this year. Moreover, readers of the influentia­l Business Traveler magazine recently voted Air Canada “Best North American Airline for Internatio­nal Travel” and “Best North American Airline for Inflight Experience.” Our support of business also takes other forms, for example through our participat­ion in technology incubators and business accelerato­rs such as Toronto’s Vector Institute and Montreal’s SCALE AI. And we are also eager to promote developmen­t of a new generation of young leaders and entreprene­urs through sponsorshi­p of such initiative­s as NEXT Canada, EY Entreprene­ur Of The Year Awards and G(irls)20.

We know that in order to flourish in today’s hypercompe­titive global economy, businesses must be agile, entreprene­urs need tools to work efficientl­y and continuous improvemen­t is required to stay ahead. Partnershi­ps are also vital, which is why at Air Canada, we are all for business. ♦
