Air Canada expands food and drink offerings

Air Canada has introduced premium complimentary snacks, including Canadian favourites, to all passengers on all flights. The airline is also expanding its complimentary beer and wine offering to passengers on flights within Canada and the US, alongside a selection of $5 spirits, until the end of 2024.

Complimentary premium snacks are now offered to Economy class passengers on all Air Canada flights. Whether travelling in Canada or to destinations around the globe, all passengers on all flights can enjoy free sweet or savoury bites, including two Canadian favourites: buttery herb and garlic pretzels from the Alberta-based company TWIGZ and Leclerc’s Célébration cookies – a sweet treat made with real milk chocolate and butter – made in Quebec.

“We’re thrilled to continue elevating the Economy travel experience in North America, and we’re proud to spotlight Canadian brands with this thoughtfully curated lineup of complimentary snacks and beverages, in time for your summer travels,” said Scott O’Leary, Vice President, Loyalty and Product at Air Canada.

“This builds on our recent industry-leading food and beverage upgrade to make travel better for all customers, including 100+ new rotating seasonal recipes,” he continued.
