Explore more with flight reward stopovers

See more during your trip by including a stopover on an international Aeroplan flight reward. Each stopover adds just 5,000 points to the existing fare between two cities, so you can maximize your points by unlocking more destinations on a single trip.

  • Redeem stopovers on one-way, round-trip, and multi-city trip types with one stopover allowed per direction of travel
  • Stopovers begin when the time between two flights is greater than 24 hours, with the ability to stay up to 45 days at a stopover location
  • Stopovers are only available in cities outside of Canada and the U.S.
  • Booking a stopover is available at Select the “Multi-city/Stopover” option when shopping for a flight reward. You can also book a stopover via the Aeroplan Contact Centre.

For more information, please consult our Flight Reward Policy.

Predictable pricing for flight rewards

With Aeroplan, the price you pay in points is related to the price of the ticket in cash. And, to make it easier to plan, we have a simple reward chart that gives you the likely range of points required for the flight you want.

You can expect your reward flight to fall into this range during normal times. If you’re looking to travel in a high demand period*, the cost of the trip in points might fall above the range. Just like booking with cash, you’ll also see prices in points that are more expensive for these high demand periods.

To give you even more certainty when you plan, we’ve made all flight rewards on partner airlines a fixed amount in points based on the distance you fly.

Want to see how much your trip will take in points? Use our Points Predictor ToolTM:

Every seat, every Air Canada flight, no restrictions

Any Air Canada seat you see available to buy in cash, you can use your points to redeem for it. With every fare class included and no blackout periods, you choose when to use your points.


We cover cash surcharges

We have eliminated additional airline surcharges on any Air Canada flight you purchase with points. Only taxes and third-party fees (such as airport fees) are listed in cash, and you can use your points to cover those, too.

If you’re booking a flight reward on another airline, there is a flat Partner Booking Fee of just $39 (per ticket) – which you can also cover with points.

Carbon offsets

Air Canada recognizes that it must do its part to reduce its environmental footprint. Every time you fly on an Air Canada operated flight through Aeroplan flight rewards, our estimated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are compensated using carbon offsets provided by CHOOOSE, Air Canada’s carbon offset provider. Through this program, Air Canada is helping to fund verified environmental projects with measurable impact, in Canada and around the world.

Aeroplan members also have the option to redeem Aeroplan points in exchange for carbon offsets to reduce their environmental footprint through the Aeroplan eStore, including GHG emissions associated with any Aeroplan flight rewards operated by other airlines.
