eUpgrades for companions
As an Aeroplan Elite Status Member, you can use your eUpgrade credits to request an upgrade for both yourself and a travel companion.
If your companion is travelling on the same reservation: All Aeroplan Elite Status Members can request these upgrades for themselves and one companion at any time, subject to your applicable clearance window.
If your companion is travelling on the same flight, but on a different reservation: These upgrade requests must be completed at the airport on the day of departure with an Air Canada agent.
As an exclusive benefit, Aeroplan Super Elite Members can designate one eUpgrade nominee and request upgrades on their behalf, even when they are not travelling together.
How eUpgrade nominees work
If you’re an Aeroplan Super Elite Member, you can use your eUpgrade credits to request an upgrade for a friend or family member. Simply designate them as an eUpgrade nominee:
Requesting upgrades for eUpgrade nominees
You can request an eUpgrade for your nominee through your eUpgrade account online, or by contacting Air Canada Reservations. Just make sure you are within your applicable clearance window for requesting an upgrade, and that your nominee has included their Aeroplan number on their reservation.
Note that, as an eUpgrade account owner, you are responsible for requesting an upgrade for your eUpgrade nominee. The eUpgrade nominee themselves cannot request upgrades using your eUpgrade credits.
