Aeroplan Earn

Earn more every day, whenever you shop or travel.

We’ve transformed Aeroplan to make it easier to rack up points. Now, earn on every Air Canada flight. Plus, with improved Aeroplan credit cards and popular retail partners, you’ll earn more points, more quickly, on your everyday shopping.

Earn everyday

Earn every time you fly.


The way you earn on flights is becoming simpler. Earn Aeroplan points on every Air Canada flight you book in cash at aircanada.com or on our app. Every fare class and every destination earns you points. Plus, earn in-flight on extras like food and beverages and duty-free purchases.

Beginning later in 2021, we’re introducing more intuitive earning for Air Canada flights. Instead of earning points based on the number of miles you fly, you’ll earn points based on the amount you pay for your ticket*. Keep in mind that while the way you earn Aeroplan points which you can redeem for rewards will change, how you qualify for status will not.

Multiply your points by your fare.

New! Now you earn points on all fares, including all Basic fares.

Plus, Aeroplan Elite Status Members earn more on Air Canada flights. Whatever fare class you choose, the points you earn are multiplied by your status tier. That’s a lot more points!

More information

The way you earn on flights will be changing later in 2021.

When the transformed Aeroplan program launches on November 8, you will continue to earn on flights just as you do today - based on the distance you fly.

Beginning later in 2021, you will earn points based on the amount you pay for your ticket. When this change comes into effect, you will automatically earn this way on all flights with Air Canada. In the coming months, we’ll share more details on how you’ll earn Aeroplan points when you purchase an Air Canada Vacations package, or fly with one of our airline partners. 

Economy Basic fares are now eligible for accrual on all Air Canada flights.

So you don’t have to wait, you’ll now earn on all Economy Basic fares with Air Canada. Starting August 11, 2020, members will earn:

  • 10% Aeroplan Miles, based on distance travelled, on Economy Basic fares for Air Canada flights within Canada.
  • 25% Aeroplan Miles, based on distance travelled, on Economy Basic fares for Air Canada flights between Canada and the United States.

Economy Basic fares for all other international Air Canada flights will continue to earn 25% Aeroplan Miles and Altitude Qualifying Miles.

Aeroplan points and Status Qualifying Miles will no longer be the same.

For many years, when you earned an Altitude Qualifying Mile, you also earned an Aeroplan Mile. With the new Aeroplan, these currencies will now be tracked separately:

  • Aeroplan points can be redeemed for rewards.
  • Status Qualifying Miles (the new name for Altitude Qualifying Miles), along with Status Qualifying Dollars, determine your Aeroplan Elite Status.

When you start to earn Aeroplan points based on your fare paid beginning next year, you will continue to earn Status Qualifying Miles based on distance flown just like today. Learn more.

Continue to earn with the same great partners you do today.

Flight, travel, and other retail partners who are in the existing program will be seamlessly transitioned to the new program on November 8. So, too, will your ability to earn points with them – just be sure to always provide your Aeroplan number when booking or making retail purchases.

The Aeroplan eStore will be getting a facelift.

The new Aeroplan eStore will offer an enhanced online shopping experience, so you can earn points with 170+ top retailers.

Stay tuned for exciting new partners coming soon.

With new and exciting partners joining the Aeroplan program after launch, you will have even more ways to earn and redeem points.
