Agreement with airline to give international access to affordable flights

(Windsor, Ontario, Jan. 18, 2021) ­­– Canada’s largest airline will help international students coming to the University of Windsor find affordable flights under an agreement between the institutions.

Air Canada serves more than 200 airports on six continents. Chris Busch, UWindsor associate vice-president for enrolment management, says the new partnership will help students from abroad seeking to travel to Canada.

“We are delighted to have entered into a partnership that helps our students travel to Canada, especially given the changing international travel landscape,” he says. “Co-operation between the University of Windsor and Air Canada will facilitate the flight booking process while offering exclusive promotional rates for our students as they start their educational journey.”

Under current pandemic restrictions, international students can enrol and travel to Canada, as long as they hold a study permit. The University of Windsor is a Designated Learning Institution with an approved COVID-19 readiness plan.

The University will email details of this agreement — including information on how to book qualifying flights — to its international students.
