Get the lowdown on strollers and bassinets
Because gate facilities in airports are not designed to accommodate large, heavy strollers, these need to be checked in and will count as one piece of baggage.
For this reason it really is best to invest in a small collapsible model that can be checked at the gate free of charge and delivered to you at the aircraft door at the end of your flight.
If you’re travelling with an infant in Economy Class, you can request a bassinet in advance of travel by contacting Air Canada Reservations. Unfortunately, we can’t confirm availability until the time of your flight’s departure and bassinets are assigned on a first come, first served basis, subject to availability at time of flight departure. It is important to note that these are not offered on every aircraft. Learn more about which aircraft offer bassinets.
