By 1964, TCA had grown to become Canada's national airline; it changed its name to Air Canada. The airline became fully privatised in 1989. In 2000, Air Canada acquired Canadian Airlines International. Today, Air Canada is the 14th largest commercial airline in the world, with approximately 24,000 full-time equivalent employees. Air Canada shares are traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) under the symbol “AC-B.TO”.

In 2008, Air Canada was voted by the readers of Business Traveler magazine as offering the “Best In-flight Services in North America”, as well as being the “Best Airline for Business Class Service” in North America, and the “Best North American Airline for International Travel”. Readers of Executive Travel magazine voted Air Canada as their choice for the “Best Airline to Canada.” enRoute, Air Canada’s bilingual in-flight magazine, was awarded the prestigious “Magazine of the Year” award by the Canadian Society of Magazine Editors.
