ID for Air Travel within Canada?

I'm travelling by air within Canada and only have an Ontario  health card. Is that sufficient ID or is something more needed.  Not sure if it matters but I'm travelling with Flair airline.

    It's not airline specific, the list of valid ID is determined federally. A health card is accepted as long as it has your photo and date of birth on it, but they generally recommend that a health card only be used for health services.

  • You would have to check with the air line and see what they accept as ID. Usually that's government issued ID when you're travelling on a plane inside of Canada. This can be a valid drivers license, valid pass port or a valid health card (not the old red and white ones). If any of those are invalid, renew your ID before you go.

    Ask your airline what ID is accepted for internal flights.
