Economy just got an upgrade.

Starting Wednesday (June 5), Air Canada will introduce premium complimentary snacks, featuring homegrown Canadian favourites, to all customers on all flights.

The airline is also expanding its complimentary beer and wine offering to customers on flights within Canada and the U.S., alongside a selection of $5 spirits, through the end of this year.

"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, in a statement. "This builds on our recent industry-leading food and beverage upgrade to make travel better for all customers, including 100+ new rotating seasonal recipes."

Snacking to Cloud Nine

Whether travelling in Canada or across the globe, all customers on all flights can enjoy free sweet or savoury bites, including two Canadian favourites: buttery herb and garlic pretzels from Alberta's family-owned and female-led TWIGZ, and Quebec-based Leclerc's Célébration Cookie, a crafted sweet treat made with real milk chocolate and butter.

Raise a glass to summer

Air Canada has extended its complimentary beer and wine offering to Economy customers flying within Canada and the U.S. just in time for summer, and through to the end of this year.

This adds to the existing complimentary offering in all International Economy and Premium cabins. Beer, wine and spirits remain available for purchase from the Air Canada Bistro menu on Economy flights to and from the Caribbean and Mexico.

Customers will enjoy a curated selection of exceptional beers, French wines, and customer favourite spirits.

Featured flavour-forward craft beers include Hop Valley and Creemore Springs Premium Lager, as well as crisp and refreshing Molson Canadian and Coors Light. Two French wines from Paul Mas include a robust red or a fresh, dry white.

For cocktail aficionados, $5 spirits on offer include Baileys Original Irish Cream, Canadian Club rye, Bacardi Superior rum, Bombay Sapphire gin, Smirnoff vodka, Tromba Tequila Blanco, or Campari. There's something everyone can cheers to with the largest bar offering of any airline in North America.

Continued culinary elevation

Customers travelling on Air Canada this summer will also enjoy its recent food and beverage upgrade to make travel better, which includes 100+ new rotating seasonal recipes alongside new snacks and beverages.

Air Canada's refreshed Bistro menu also has the most extensive selection of fresh buy-on-board options from any North American airline, and Air Canada also remains the only North American airline to offer hot, fresh kids' meals to purchase through its North American Bistro program.
