Air Canada unveiled multiple changes to its Aeroplan frequent-flyer program. The changes go into effect on November 8, 2020.

Current members will keep their existing Aeroplan membership numbers and all Aeroplan Miles will transfer to the new program on a one-to-one basis.

With Family Sharing, Aeroplan will allow for points and benefit sharing among family members, and all seats on all flights will be available for redemption, without blackout dates.  There will be no cash surcharges, Air Canada said.

Points may also be used for upgrades and in-flight Wi-Fi purchases, something that wasn’t possible with the previous program, as well as hotels, car rentals, and vacation packages.

Members of the program will be able to earn or redeem points on 35 partner airlines including Lufthansa and United Airlines.

Finally, Air Canada will continue its credit card partnerships with American Express, TD Bank, and the Canadian Bank of Imperial Commerce.  Members holding such cards will continue to be able to earn and redeem awards and the airline will introduce new benefits in the coming months.
