About  Air Canada Timetables

Air Canada is the last, large North American airline to be included in AirTimes and more than one collector has wondered about this obvious omission. 

For a North American airline, Air Canada's timetable publication history is uniquely complex. Over the years, Trans-Canada, and later Air Canada, have issued a wide variety of timetable editions with significant schedule content, advertising and target market differences in mind.  From a corporate perspective, this complexity is simply an attempt to put the company's products and services in the best light for customers in different markets. From a collector's viewpoint, however, subtle content and market orientation are not always apparent in Air Canada's timetable publication history.

AirTimes uses a classification system to help differentiate content and markets when an airline produces multiple editions with the same or similar dates.

While many Air Canada timetable series are straight forward, others are not.  For example during most of the 1960s and 1970s, if you want to see all Air Canada schedules for a particular date, you need copies of both the North American and International editions. Under the AirTimes system, these are categorized as Class 1D - Component System Timetables.  Beginning in late 1976, Air Canada began producing two versions of the North American edition - one for distribution in Canada and the other in the United States.  

Since flight schedule content was identical with only advertising differences between the two North American editions, many collectors will view the differentiation of these series as irrelevant.  However, an AirTimes goal is to
fully catalog an airline's timetable publication history.  

If you've ever purchased or traded for what you thought was a system timetable, only to later find out it was abridged and lacking the content you specifically wanted to explore, then you should understand why AirTimes has taken the more difficult path of trying to sort through the many timetable editions before publishing pages for many of the world's airlines.

That's not to say the choices AirTimes has made in cataloging Air Canada's timetables are necessarily the best!  Feedback to psloan@airtimes.com will be very much appreciated.

In the meantime, below is an index to Air Canada timetable categories included on this page.  The current categories list is incomplete and additional publication editions will be added as AirTimes grows.

Air Canada USA Edition

Green border separates upper logo/date from picture below. The only difference between the Class 1A Air Canada System Timetable and Class 1B USA Edition  is a slight variation in market orientation - usually identifiable  in USA issues noting  flights "to" Canada on inside front or back cover advertisements.
