. NEED TO KNOW.


Changes to employee travel implemented

Travelling on Air Canada and Canadian Airlines is about to get a lot
easier for employees of both carriers. A joint review of employee
travel privileges is looking at ways to facilitate our ultimate goal
of integration. The following changes constitute phase one in what may
result in a series of adjustments over the course of the next few
months.

On Monday, January 24, improvements to the employee travel interline
agreement will affect flights operated by Air Canada, Air Nova, Air
Ontario, AirBC, Canadian Airlines, and Canadian Regional.

Employee Personal travel

Air Canada will accept Canadian "U-Write" tickets on all flights
operated by Air Canada and Connector carriers_"U-Write" tickets are
similar to Air Canada employee trip pass tickets, T421. Canadian will
accept Air Canada employee trip pass tickets (T421) on all flights
operated by Canadian and Canadian Regional.

Who's eligible?

Active employees of Air Canada, Air Nova, Air Ontario, AirBC, Canadian
Airlines, and Canadian Regional with a minimum of 6 months service,
retirees, spouses, dependant children under 25 years of age, and

continue to purchase medium ZED fares.

Travel priority

Service Charges
