Air Canada boosts fees

Air Canada is following in WestJet's footsteps by charging a $25 fee for the first piece of checked baggage.

Air Canada's policy change only affects domestic flights, as the company has already been charging for checked baggage on its U.S. destination flights since 2011. Air Canada's policy change will affect its lowest price fares only.

Canadian North, First Air, and Air North have stated they have no intention to change their own policies of allowing free checked baggage on even their lowest priced fares.
