Air Canada “Fly your bike” 2019

Air Canada’s motorcycle shipping season between Europe and Canada is in full swing. The same cities as last year have all been retained as pickup and delivery points.

Having uncrated “Streak & Storm” in airport carparks in Delhi, Santiago and Seoul, I have a soft spot for the simplicity of the Air Canada “Fly Your Bike” program. Having used it twice, once on each of our two RTW journeys, and seen the ease and helpfulness of the Air Canada staff, I like to give an annual plug for what I think should be the standard for all motorcycle air transportation.

While packing your motorcycle it is important to remember the dangerous goods provision to avoid having items removed at the receipt point doing the inspection. Just before the end of our first RTW journey, we had to leave behind the rubber glue and CO2 canisters from our AirPro puncture repair kit, Loctite, Sendrite (an instant adhesive), WD40 and ScotOiler oil. (brake fluid /oil was OK). Since we only had some 100 miles/160 kilometres to go after arriving in London, it was not much of an issue. We also took our Sena intercoms with us because of the lithium batteries. Since you are arriving either in Europe or Canada those type of items will be fairly easy to obtain. So you can leave them out and obtain on arrival.

Here is Air Canada’s 2019 Fly Your Bike brochure:

Enjoy the travelling.
