Air Canada teams with PayPal for new online payment option

MONTREAL — Air Canada passengers booking online at aircanada.com in Canada can now use PayPal as a payment option.

Customers can pay for their flights with their preferred payment method – bank account, credit cards or Visa Debit card – linked to their PayPal account.

“Air Canada’s strategy is to continually provide customers the opportunity to make their purchase using their preferred method of payment,” said Keith Wallis, Senior Director, Payments and Distribution, at Air Canada.

“We are therefore pleased to announce our agreement with PayPal, the popular online payment system that is secure, fast and convenient to use. Having now made PayPal available for ticket sales in Canada, we will look to expand the program to other markets as opportunities arise.”

Air Canada is PayPal’s first airline partner in Canada. PayPal has more than 300 million active users worldwide.
