IMG_3217Canadian low-cost carrier Flair Airlines and Aimia, the owner of Air Canada’s frequent flyer program Aeroplan, announced plans to form a partnership.

The tie-up, which would go into effect in 2020, will allow passengers on Flair to earn Aeroplan Miles when taking flights and also allow passengers to redeem miles for award flights.

“At Flair we provide affordable flight options for Canadians,” said Jim Scott, the airline’s CEO. “Our arrangement with Aeroplan helps further that commitment.”

The move follows the rejection last week of an offer for a consortium led by Air Canada to acquire Aeroplan from Aimia and the announcement of a partnership between Aeroplan and Porter Airlines

Aeroplan, currently Air Canada’s frequent-flyer program, was spun off by the airline and the agreement between the two is currently set to expire on June 29, 2020. In a statement on Thursday, Air Canada said it remains “on track” to launch its own frequent-flyer program at that time.
