Elderly Women Without ID Denied Flight Access

Two women in their 90s flying with Air Canada were denied boarding access to their flights because they didn’t have the proper photo ID with them.  The first, 92-year-old Joyce Taylor, flew from Vancouver to Calgary and then was not allowed to board the flight back as she had only her credit card with her as ID.  She had to have someone from home fax copies of the documents she needed.


The second woman was 94-year-old Yueh Yang Clen, who drove to Calgary with family and was supposed to fly back.  She had a photocopy of her passport, but they wouldn’t accept it and she waited for hours while her family mailed the right documents.  Her daughter Judy Chow said at this age she is no security threat.  However, Angela Mah, a spokesperson for Air Canada, said that the regulations for boarding a flight is that all passengers have to have a valid photo ID and Taylor shouldn’t have been allowed to board her first flight.
