Today we have yet another Business Class review by SkyLux Travel. Our latest airline is Air Canada, and we’ll be looking at the Air Canada Business Class experience.


Air Canada is Canada’s largest airline. As the country’s flag carrier, the company will take Canadian athletes to the Summer Olympics in Paris in 2024. The Canadian Parliament established the airline in the Trans-Canada Air Lines Act of 1937, so the company has a long history of being Canada’s airline. It is a founding member of Star Alliance, providing direct service from North America to six continents. In fact, Air Canada is the only international network carrier in North America with a Four-Star ranking from Skytrax.


Air Canada was recently recognized as Favorite Airline in North America for the fifth consecutive year by the Trazee Awards. In December 2022, Global Traveler named it the Best Airline in North America for the fourth year in a row. In June of last year, Air Canada was recognized several times during the Leisure lifestyle awards, which praised its Onboard Entertainment, Menu, and Family-Friendliness. These are just the company’s recent awards, so you can be sure you’ll be well-taken care of when you travel Business Class on Air Canada!
