Helpful Reminders Over the Holidays


Mainline Cabin Personnel who work on Christmas Day and/or New Year’s Day will receive a C1/J09 pass for each of these days worked.

This includes Cabin Personnel who are on Reserve on either (or both) of those days, but are not called in. These passes can be carried over from year to year until your retirement. The Passes will be added to your travel profile during the the annual refresh – usually around the second or third week of January. In addition, the two annual “Thank You” C1/J09 passes will be added at this time. As previously announced by the Company, you will receive double the usual allotment in 2021. We encourage you to verify and ensure that you receive your allotment.

Please note that the Holiday Passes are not applicable to members working at Air Canada Rouge.


As a friendly reminder, the base transfer list is refreshed annually at the end of each calendar year. If you are still interested in remaining on the base transfer list, please be sure to resubmit your statement of base transfer in eForms.  Although one-way transfers are not being processed while we have members on layoff, the Company is still processing mutual transfers on a monthly basis.


Your Local offices will be accessible over the majority of the holiday season, with the exception of Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. You can find their contact information HERE.
