Air Canada Introducing Aeroplan Changes

Posted on December 20, 2019 by in Aeroplan, Air Canada, Frequent Flyer Programs, Travel Deals, Travel News

Air Canada is launching a new loyalty program in 2020 after buying back Aeroplan from Aimia. Aeroplan has made some big updates to terms as of March 2020, and probably the biggest update is coming to their Aeroplan status.

 

Air Canada Introducing Aeroplan Status Changes

Air Canada has sent out an email about the changes made to the Aeroplan program effective March 1, 2020. They have announced updates and changes to terms of use as of March. One of the most important parts of this announcement was the news relating to the Aeroplan staus program.

The number of miles required to reach the different Aeroplan status levels in 2019:

  • Diamond—100,000 eligible miles accumulated during the 2019 calendar year
  • Black—50,000 eligible miles accumulated during the 2019 calendar year
  • Silver—25,000 eligible miles accumulated during the 2019 calendar year

The number of miles required to reach the different Aeroplan status levels in 2020 to receive benefits until December 31, 2021:

  • Diamond—100,000 eligible miles accumulated between January 1, 2020, and February 29, 2020
  • Black—50,000 eligible miles accumulated between January 1, 2020, and February 29, 2020
  • Silver—25,000 eligible miles accumulated between January 1, 2020, and February 29, 2020

What that means is that in order to maintain the “silver,” “black” and “diamond” membership levels to the end of 2021, members would have to acquire 25,000, 50,000 and 100,000 miles in just 60 days. Specifically, between January 1, 2020, and February 29,2020. As of March 1, members can no longer earn an Aeroplan status. However, if you earn status in 2019 it will still be valid through the end of 2020. This is probably Air Canda’s way of killing off the Aeroplan status program in preparation for the new upcoming loyalty program.

Earlier this year, Air Canada announced that they would be launching a more rewarding loyalty program in 2020. However, they have not released many details yet about the upcoming changes or a release date which should be very soon.
