Destination Canada announced a partnership with Air Canada to offer travelers in the United States the opportunity to match their current elite status with the equivalent on the carrier’s Aeroplan frequent-flyer program.

The status match is open to travelers with status on Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue, and Southwest Airlines.

“We believe the benefits of this program provides a great incentive to them to choose Canada for their next trip,” said Gloria Loree, Destination Canada’s chief marketing officer, adding that she cannot “wait to welcome our American friends back.”

The status match is being processed through a third-party company, Status Match, and is valid through the end of 2022 if the traveler books and flies one return trip with Air Canada that is eligible to accrue Aeroplan points prior to January 15, 2022

In 2020, Air Canada relaunched the Aeroplan frequent-flyer program, adding new benefits that included the ability to share points within one’s family and the elimination of blackout dates.
