Simple, better, quicker, accurate: these are the hallmarks of the best online shopping experiences for travellers when it comes to booking a flight.  And now customers of Air Canada have all of these features in a new and improved booking experience, powered by leading digital solutions from global travel technology company, Amadeus.

Air Canada, the largest provider in the Canadian market, recently unveiled the all-new aircanada.com featuring a new, responsive design, improved booking flow and enhanced search options for travellers.
