The battle for real air passenger rights is far from over. You can join and fight the good fight now.
The so-called Air Passenger Bill of "Rights" introduced by the government makes things worse for travellers. For example:
- Tarmac Delay: Airlines can keep you confined to an aircraft on the tarmac for up to 3 hours and 45 minutes. This is more than double the 90-minute limit that had been the Canadian standard since 2008, and which was endorsed by the Senate in 2018.
- Denied Boarding Compensation: Airlines gained unprecedented freedom to bump you without paying compensation, because "denial of boarding" has been defined so narrowly.
