One of Air Canada’s most exclusive elite benefits is coming back — and it’ll be greener than ever.

The Canadian flag carrier has signed an agreement with Porsche Cars Canada that will provide brand-new electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles for the Air Canada Chauffeur Service program that it offers to select Signature Class passengers.

“As we continue to restart key international routes, we look forward to welcoming our customers at Toronto Pearson with this one-of-a-kind airport premium experience in Canada, in partnership with one of the world’s most iconic luxury car brands,” said Scott O’Leary, Vice President of Loyalty and Product at Air Canada.

Here’s everything you need to know about Air Canada’s eco-friendly Porsche-driven transfer service — and, of course, a look at how you can experience it.

Air Canada’s Signature Class Chauffeur Service

Already in operation on a “surprise-and-delight basis” in Toronto (YYZ), and set to be expanded to Vancouver (YVR) in the coming months, some lucky Signature Class (Air Canada’s name for its business class product) passengers will get to experience Air Canada Chauffeur Service once again.

Unlike some of its peers like Emirates, Etihad, and Turkish Airlines who will chauffeur you from home (or your hotel) to your departure airport and then again from your arrival airport, Air Canada Chauffeur Service is more akin to the offerings of Air France and Lufthansa in the sense that you’re limited to rides within the airport grounds.

How To Snag an Electrified Porsche Ride

To be eligible for the Air Canada Chauffeur Service in an electrified Porsche Cayenne, Panamera, or Taycan, you must be connecting in Toronto or Vancouver from a domestic Canadian flight onto a long-haul destination in Asia, Europe, or South America, which includes a range of popular cities like Athens (ATH), Dubai (DXB), Tokyo (HND and NRT), and São Paulo (GRU).

Upon arrival in either of the aforementioned Air Canada hubs, eligible passengers will be met by an airline employee and then driven in an electrified Porsche to the Air Canada Signature Suite, where they can spend their layover.

Air Canada’s Signature Class product is only available on international flights operated by its wide-body fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners, Boeing 777s, or Airbus A330s.

Hot Tip: Flying Air Canada’s Signature Class and experiencing electrified Porsche rides is more affordable than you may think. That’s because there are so many ways you can earn a ton of Air Canada Aeroplan points that can be redeemed for a flight in Signature Class.

Final Thoughts

Air Canada is making a statement by bringing back one of its most exclusive premium benefits — and doing so in a sustainable way. Whether you’re headed to Asia, Europe, or South America, your connection in Toronto or Vancouver has the potential to be a part of your trip you surely won’t forget.
