Air Canada has extended Elite Status validity until the end of 2022 and introduced new opportunities for members to accelerate their status qualification in the years ahead.

“Loyalty is a two-way street, and we understand and appreciate why so many of your travel plans are interrupted this year. For that reason, we are automatically extending Aeroplan Elite Status for an additional year—through to the end of 2022,” said Mark Nasr, Senior Vice President, Products, Marketing and eCommerce at Air Canada. 

“These changes are some of the many ways we’re recognizing our members and demonstrating our commitment to welcoming them back onboard, whenever it’s the right time for them to travel again.”

This is the second year Air Canada has extended the status of its Aeroplan Elite members. 

Additional changes for Aeroplan Elite Status members include:

  • Priority Reward Vouchers extended — All unused Priority Reward vouchers issued in 2020 are extended by one full year, making them valid for use until OCT 2022.
  • Elite Status Qualification Jumpstart for 2022 — For Aeroplan members who earn Elite Status through their 2021 flight activity, the Status Qualifying Miles, Segments, and Dollars earned in 2021 will be honoured the next year, jumpstarting their status qualification in the years to come.

Changes for all Aeroplan members include:

  • Change or cancel Flight Rewards, free of charge — Aeroplan flight rewards booked through 30APR, 2021 (for travel through APR 2022) can be changed or cancelled free of charge, at any time. Members who opt to cancel will receive all Aeroplan points back in their account, plus a full refund of any associated taxes, fees and surcharges on the unused value of their travel.
  • Temporary pause to expiration of Aeroplan points — The expiry of Aeroplan points is paused until 31JAN, 2022.
