Benefits of Using Aeroplan

Aeroplan members can use their points on flights, stays, and other travel upgrades. Air Canada flights start at just 6,000 points (for a short-haul flight) and as a member you get free-in-flight Wi-Fi texting. You also earn points on car rentals, hotels, and vacation packages – so every trip racks up points for the next!

Members can also use their points to book hotel stays for less by saving up to 30 percent with HotelSavers, the program’s booking platform. Plus, if someone in the family is an Aeroplan credit card holder, you can redeem for 3 hotel nights but stay for 4.

Aeroplan offers tons of benefits from predictable pricing, a simple rewards chart, and the ability to book any seat on Air Canada with points, avoiding extra out-of-pocket expense. 

Aeroplan also lets you book flight rewards with Air Canada for fewer points with no blackout dates or restrictions. Points can go so far as to cover the taxes & non-airline fees, so it’s really possible to book a trip for ZERO upfront dollars if you’re a true points wizard.

Travel Anywhere You Want

With Aeroplan, members have access to the network of Canada’s largest airline – Air Canada – with flights to more than 180 destinations in Canada and abroad. Members can also use their points to book flights with 45+ partner airlines covering more than 1,300 destinations around the world. And if that doesn’t get you hyped, Air Canada was awarded as the most family friendly airline at the 2023 SkyTrax World Airline Awards, making their hundreds of flights the best choice for families looking to make travel a breeze.
