Aeroplan Adds Two New Airline Partners

Air Canada's loyalty program has officially added Oman Air and Air Mauritius as its newest airline partners as of 14DEC, bringing Aeroplan's list of airline travel partners to more than 40.

Oman Air is the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman. The airline operates flights from its hub in Muscat (MCT), Oman throughout the Mid-East, several European gateways, the Indian Sub-Continent, South Asia, as well as to adventure destinations in Africa.

Air Mauritius is the national carrier of the Republic of Mauritius. The airline operates flights to its European gateways CGD and LHR, as well as to BOM, JNB, Madagascar, RUN and RRG.

These new partnerships expand Aeroplan’s coverage in the region and gives members access to even more air products. Members will be able to earn on or redeem for Oman Air’s Apex Suite in the Business Class cabin, as well as the Private Suite in the First Class cabin. Air Mauritius is the first airline in the world to operate both the new generation Airbus A350-900 and A330-900neo and expands Aeroplan’s presence, giving members more choice for airlines serving premium leisure destinations in the Indian Ocean vicinity.
