Fly cash-free starting in April

 

We're always looking for ways to improve our program based on the evolving needs of our members. We've listened and know that members have been waiting for the ability to book a flight reward cash‑free and we're happy to announce that the time is here! Starting in April, members will have the flexibility to use their Aeroplan Miles to cover the taxes, fees and surcharges associated with a flight reward booked through aeroplan.com, the Aeroplan Contact Centre and the mobile app.

Here is how it works online:
   1. Find the flight you want on aeroplan.com or on the mobile app
   2. Select 'Pay all with miles' when given the payment option choice online about taxes, fees and surcharges
   3. Enjoy your cash‑free flight!

Cash‑free flight rewards will apply to our two flight reward options: Fixed Mileage Flight Rewards™ and Market Fare Flight Rewards™.

   • Fixed Mileage Flight Rewards, offers a limited number of seats exclusively1 at fixed industry‑leading2 mileage levels
     to Aeroplan Members on Air Canada flights and over 25 Star Alliance member airlines.
   • Market Fare Flight Rewards provides access to all available seats on all Air Canada operated flights3 at mileage
     levels that vary based on market fares at time of booking.

This option will only apply to new flight reward bookings; changes to existing bookings made prior to the launch date are not eligible for the "miles only" option.
