How to qualify for Aeroplan Elite Status
In the Elite Status program, you earn the following qualifying currency on eligible flights with Air Canada and the Star Alliance member airlines over the calendar year:
Status Qualifying Miles
Status Qualifying Segments
Status Qualifying Dollars
Threshold eUpgrades and gifts
As an Elite Status Member, you receive exclusive gifts and earn additional eUpgrade credits to use towards our premium cabins, just for flying with Air Canada and the Star Alliance member airlines.
Advance your status with Aeroplan credit cards
Many of our Aeroplan credit cards are the ideal complement to your Elite Status.
You can earn Status Qualifying Miles (SQM) and Status Qualifying Segments (SQS) just by spending daily on your eligible credit card.
Rollover SQM and eUpgrades
Have additional SQM above your qualification threshold, or unused eUpgrade credits about to expire? We’ll roll them over if you have an eligible credit card.
Get higher priority at the airport
Your credit card can get you higher priority for many premium airport services – ahead of members with the same status who don’t have an eligible credit card.
Air Canada Million Mile recognizes our most frequent flyers
Once you have flown more than one million Lifetime Qualifying Miles (LQM) with us, you can look forward to an enhanced travel experience with the Air Canada Million Mile program. Celebrate your milestones with greater recognition and special benefits!
