International students coming to Canada will get cheaper air tickets
Air Canada and the University of Windsor have made an agreement to provide air tickets at concessional rates to International students coming to Canada for studies at this University. Other educational institutions in Canada are also making such arrangements. Air Canada brings flights from 200 airports across the globe. It is an attempt by Air Canada to make its contribution to Canada’s progress and prosperity. This move will save some money for international students who were struggling with the very high prices of air tickets as an effect of the pandemic. Institutions will send the details of the concessions to enrolled students to enable international students to enable them to book their flights with Air Canada.
