If you are travelling in the near future on Air Canada, you may want to consider the following new rules regarding carry-on luggage.

Air Canada says that their top priority is for you to travel safely, comfortably and easily without delay and in an effort to ensure that, they are ” making some changes to make sure that happens” with your carry-on luggage.

Starting on May 25, 2015 at Toronto-Pearson (YYZ) and expanding progressively to other airports throughout the month of June, they’ll have staff at both check-in and security checkpoints to quickly confirm and tag your carry-on bags that meet Air Canada’s existing carry-on dimensions as “approved”.  the airline says it will make it easier and safer to stow your personal items on board, may help reduce wait times at security, and will help avoid flight delays caused by larger bags being checked at the gate.

Here’s what the tag will look like:

Approved bag tag

If a piece of your carry-on baggage needs to be checked they will help with that at check in.  If you get to security and need to check a bag that exceeds allowable size limits, you will be given a special card that will get you quickly back to a check-in agent, and then on to your departure gate.

Air Canada notes that carry-on bags which exceed their policy for size and number will need to be checked, and standard fees will apply.

What do you think?  Will you switch it up with the carry-on?
