On Friday (December 1, 2023), Air Canada announced the addition of a new baggage and mobility aid tracking feature to the Air Canada app. Guests traveling within Canada can now track the progress of their baggage and/or mobility aid in real time at key points throughout the journey. Initially, the feature will be available domestically in Canada during final development, before being expanded to the airline’s U.S. transborder destinations next year, and then progressively rolled out to select international destinations over time.


In Friday’s announcement, Air Canada’s VP – Customer Experience and Operations Strategy, Tom Stevens, said,


“At Air Canada, we know that apart from a safe, comfortable journey, the prompt delivery of baggage and mobility aids is a top priority for our customers. We already achieve a very high reliability rate, but to further elevate our service we are introducing a new tracking feature in the Air Canada mobile app to give customers real-time information, greater certainty about the movement of their belongings during their trip, and heightened convenience.”

For customers required to check mobility aids, they will be able to check the movement of their aid, including the ability to confirm, under Air Canada’s enhanced accessibility protocols, that it has been securely loaded before departure. The tracker also has a ‘What’s Next’ feature that tells customers the next step for their belongings, such as information on where they need to pick up their baggage, like a carousel number, either at a transfer point or at their final destination. If baggage is delayed, the app will advise customers of the delayed items, and enable them to file a delayed baggage report from their smartphone and arrange delivery. Customers will then receive a confirmation with a file number and a link to follow up on any updates.
