The 2018 Air Canada “Fly Your Bike” program has been announced earlier than previous years so you can start planning your adventure now. This program provides an effective and easy way to move motorcycles between Canada and Europe. As a user of the program in 2015 and 2017, we can say we were very happy with the service provided.
Destination changes this year see the removal of Amsterdam, Netherlands with Brussels, Belgium as a nearby alternative. For the African adventurers there is the addition of Casablanca, Morocco. For further information read the pdf file and for contact and Q&A information go to Air Canada Cargo icon on our links page.
Dangerous goods: your bike and equipment will be inspected for dangerous goods. Your fuel tank must be less than a quarter full – best to get it to when the fuel light just comes on if you can. Empty any camping bottles and spare fuel containers – we take the tops off so that there are no fuel fumes left. In addition, we had to leave the following behind:
the rubber glue and the CO2 canisters from our AirPro puncture repair kit, Loctite, Dendrite (some instant adhesive), wd40, and scotoiler oil (the brake fluid/oil was ok). We also took our Sena intercoms with us because of the lithium batteries.
