Airlines Enhance Joint Web Site

[Montreal, CANADA] Air Canada has redesigned its Web site with a new
look and easier to access, more complete Interactive Services section.

Canadian Airlines’ Web site has been integrated into the redesigned
Air Canada one, where both airlines’ products and online services are
now available.

Effective immediately, customers can access the airlines’ interactive
flight booking services directly from the Air Canada home page.

Customers can now also enjoy a faster and easier access to flight
schedules, timetables that can be downloaded, as well as arrival and
departure times for Air Canada or Canadian Airlines operated flights.

In addition, Aeroplan members can quickly access personal account
information, check their account balance and book Aeroplan reward
travel through Aeroplan Virtual Rewards. Canadian Plus members have
their own ‘Canadian Plus’ button in the main navigation bar.

“The redesign and fresh, new look of our site mark another step
towards the integration of Air Canada and Canadian Airlines,” said
Alice Keung, vice president, Information Technology and chief
information officer.

“Our objective is to offer our customers the fastest and most
convenient access to interactive tools and key information on Air
Canada and Canadian Airlines.”

In February this year, Air Canada was honored with the Internet World
Impact Award for its Web site at the Internet World Canada 2000
Conference in Toronto.

The site was selected for having the most impact on changing the way
people buy.

In August, eMarketer, a leading provider of Internet statistics,
ranked Air Canada’s site among the top ten airline Web sites in the
world.
