Air Canada has announced new checked baggage fees, in an effort to offset high fuel prices.
Flying to the U.S. will now see you paying $25 for your first checked bag when flying economy, and $35 for your second checked bag, each way.
For flights within Canada, the first bag is still free with the second bag garnering a fee of $20 (per direction).
For many international flights now, while your first bag is still free, the second will cost $70 each way (for flights booked after June 1, 2011).
