Canadian airports offer greater perks this Holiday season

(NC)—In the lead up to the hectic holiday travel period, Canada's busiest airport has super-sized its service offering to give commuters better travel benefits than ever before.

To help enhance the travel experience for example, American Express Canada has partnered with the Greater Toronto Airport Authority (GTAA) to offer more service-related perks at Toronto Pearson International Airport. From premium lounge access for Platinum Cardmembers, to the opportunity to jump the queue with priority check-in and free Wi-Fi for all, Amex says it has put the premium lens over Pearson.

Perks now include:

• Comfort and convenience: All airport guests receive complimentary Wi-Fi access (due to an initiative by American Express) allowing travellers to check emails or browse the web before their flight. After passing through security, domestic travelers also receive access to the Re-Vesting Area, a dedicated spot where passengers can gather their belongings before proceeding to the gate. Some card members even get access to the private Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge and Plaza Premium Lounges.

• Express access: Platinum Cardmembers are able to bypass the regular check-in line and head straight to an Air Canada Priority Check-in Counter, regardless of what fare they paid for their ticket. They can also expedite their way through security by simply presenting their eligible card and valid boarding pass to access Toronto Pearson Priority Security Lanes.

• Parking and Car Care: Platinum Cardmembers enjoy the complimentary Valet Service and, discounts on the Car Care service (including quality car cleaning and detailing services) and parking in the Express Park garage and Daily Park garages.
