ID Requirements and travel documents

Before leaving for the airport, make sure to have all the proper identification and travel documents required by law. If you do not, you will not be allowed to board the aircraft.

  • 1 piece of valid government-issued photo ID with your name, date of birth and gender or
  • 2 pieces of valid government-issued ID without photo, with one of them indicating your name, date of birth and gender.

Please note that the name on the ID must match the name on your boarding pass. Any difference may result in your being denied clearance to board.

Examples of valid government-issued identification documents:
  • Passport
  • Citizenship card
  • Permanent-resident card
  • Driver's license
  • Provincial healthcare card
  • Provincial or territorial government identification cards (GICs)
  • Birth certificate
