unnamed (20)Air Canada is pleased to announce that between 14 September and 31 December 2015 it is more than doubling its travel agent commission on Business Class published airfares sold in Australia on its services from Sydney to Canada and the US.

Air Canada’s Special Commission Promotion will see travel agents earn a base commission of 7% – up from the airline’s standard 3% base commission – each time they book and ticket a Business Class published airfare for departures before 31 December 2015. 

In addition, agents will earn 7% commission on the Business Class ticket’s associated YQ fuel surcharge. 

The increased commission level is valid for one-way and round-trip Business Class itineraries originating in Australia for travel to Canada and the Unites States on services operated by Air Canada. 

General Manager Australia and New Zealand Paul McLean says the Special Commission Promotion recognizes Australian travel agents’ extraordinary support during 2015. 

“The strength and depth of the relationship Air Canada enjoys with its Australian travel industry partners has given us the opportunity to expand our local operation in mid-2016 by launching Brisbane-Vancouver services using our 787-8 Dreamliners and bringing our Premium Economy product to this market,” says McLean. 

Air Canada’s International Business Class offers passengers fully lie-flat beds, more than 600 hours of in-flight entertainment and access to award winning Maple Leaf™ Lounges and concierge services. 

International Business Class is available on all of Air Canada’s daily non-stop flights from Sydney to Vancouver and on to Toronto. Business Class passengers can also take advantage of smooth connections to more than 60 destinations in Canada and 52 destinations in the United States.
