Air Canada offers discounts for musicians

Musicians travelling with instruments on Air Canada flights may be eligible for a discount and more time to board.

The MU welcomes the news that Air Canada will offer discounts for musicians, and congratulates its Canadian friends at the Canadian Federation of Musicians (CFM) in reaching this agreement with the airline.

Under the new policy, musicians traveling with their instruments receive a 50% discount on fares when purchasing a seat to accommodate their musical instrument and will be invited to pre-board the plane in advance of general boarding to have more time to store their instruments in overhead bins.

The full policy can be found on Air Canada's website.
