Update to Star Alliance Gold lounge access

Policy change for members, effective May 3, 2021.

Starting May 3, 2021, Star Alliance Gold members – including Aeroplan 50K, 75K, and Super Elite members – may only invite a guest into designated Star Alliance Gold lounges if their guest is travelling on the same flight. This is a change enforced by our partner airlines.

For Aeroplan Elite Status Members, rest assured there is no change to accessing Maple Leaf Lounges and the Air Canada CaféTM, including our guest access policy.

Until May 3, Star Alliance Gold members can continue to invite a guest into eligible Star Alliance lounges if they are travelling on a same-day flight operated by Air Canada or any Star Alliance member airline.
