Implementation Date of Interline Baggage Rules Extended to April 1, 2015

On April 16th, 2014, the Canadian Transportation Agency, issued Decision No.144-A-2014 establishing "Interline Baggage Rules for Canada".

As various industry stakeholders filed submissions related to the implementation date and in order to provide air carriers sufficient time to make the significant changes required to their systems, the Agency issued Order No. 2014-A-158 which extends the implementation date.

Carriers are expected to apply the approach to tickets issued on or after April 1, 2015. As per the statutory requirements, revised tariffs to reflect the approach will need to be filed no later than 45 days prior to April 1, 2015.
