Make the most of Aeroplan Elite Status in 2022

More details on updates to Aeroplan Elite Status

Earlier this year, we further extended your Aeroplan Elite Status through 2022. Now, as travel resumes, we want to ensure you can make the most of your status in the year ahead.

Program updates for 2022

eUpgrade validity
The validity date on eUpgrade credits will be extended by two weeks, from December 31 to January 15. This ensures you can more easily upgrade your travels over the holiday season.

This extension will also apply for unused credits you’ve earned over the course of 2021, and will reflect in your eUpgrade account before the end of November.

This means that:

  • eUpgrade credits earned on or before August 31, 2022: expire January 15, 2023
  • eUpgrade credits earned on or after September 1, 2022: expire January 15, 2024

Your 2022 membership kit
You’ll only receive a new membership kit for the coming year if you achieve a higher status than you currently hold in 2021. Otherwise, continue to use your 2021 luggage tags, and access your membership card in the Air Canada mobile app.

Status Qualifying Dollars
Members whose primary residence is located outside of Canada will no longer be able to qualify for status with 50% fewer Status Qualifying Dollars.

This means, starting in January 2022 and beyond, all members will need to reach the published Status Qualifying Dollar requirement to qualify. Learn more.

Take advantage of your benefits
Aeroplan Elite Status and Priority Rewards Extension
Your current status, and any unused Priority Rewards issued through the end of 2021, will be extended to December 31, 2022.

Elite Status rollover benefits
If you’re the Primary Cardholder of an Aeroplan® premium credit card, we will automatically rollover eligible Status Qualifying Miles and eUpgrade credits to 2022. Any rollover Status Qualifying Miles or eUpgrade credits that apply to your cardholder status will be posted to your account separately by the last week of January.

To be eligible for the rollover benefits, status members who are not already cardholders must be approved for a new Aeroplan premium credit card no later than December 15, 2021.
