Das neue Air Canada Aeroplan Programm ist da …

Air Canadas Loyalitätsprogramm Aeroplan hat eine umtriebige Geschichte hinter sich. Das Meilenprogramm Aeroplan hat Air Canada verkauft. Das Altitude Statusprogramm blieb bei Air Canada. Aeroplan hatte dann Schwierigkeiten, einige Zeit wollte Air Canada das Programm sogar auslaufen lassen, bis man es schlußendlich wieder gekauft hat.

Nun kommt die Zusammenführung von Altitude und Aeroplan! Die Eckpunkte hat man vorgestellt! Startpunkt ist der 08.11.2020!

Die Neuerungen:

“Improved Value on Flight Rewards
It’s always a great time to use your points, and Aeroplan offers flight rewards to hundreds of destinations worldwide on Air Canada and its partner airlines. The transformed Aeroplan will offer Members an integrated experience with the ability to search and redeem for flight rewards at aircanada.com or on the Air Canada app. Other improvements include:
Every seat, every Air Canada flight, no restrictions – Members can redeem Aeroplan points to purchase any Air Canada seat that is available for sale – no restrictions.
No cash surcharges on Air Canada flights – Additional airline surcharges, including fuel surcharges, on all flight rewards with Air Canada will be eliminated. Members will pay cash only for taxes and third-party fees (and can even pay for those with Aeroplan points).
Predictable pricing –Points needed for Aeroplan flight rewards on Air Canada will be based on actual prices in the market. Plan trips easily and confidently with the Points Predictor Tool, which provides an estimated range in Aeroplan points that members will need for their flight rewards. This tool also shows the fixed amount of points members will need for flight rewards with airline partners.
Unparalleled global reach – As North America’s most globally connected loyalty program, Aeroplan offers the ability to earn or redeem points on over 35 airlines. This global network comprises among the very best airlines for quality and service in their respective regions, and enables members to redeem for flights to over 1,300 destinations. Recent partner additions include Etihad Airways and Azul.
Points + Cash – Members will have the flexibility to save their Aeroplan points, and pay for a portion of their flight reward in cash.
More Options for More Members
Aeroplan has something for everyone and will make travel even better with new features such as:
Aeroplan Family Sharing – Members will be able to combine Aeroplan points with others in their household, for free, so they can redeem for travel sooner.
Earn points whenever you fly – Earn Aeroplan points with every Air Canada flight booked in cash on our website or app, now including Economy Basic fares.
Upgrade your flight – Members can redeem their Aeroplan points to upgrade to Air Canada Premium Economy or Business Class, whenever those cabins are offered and seats are available. With our innovative bidding feature, members can name their own price to bid for upgrades.
Extra perks within reach – Members will be able to use their Aeroplan points for popular extras, such as in-flight Wi-Fi or the ability to relax in Air Canada’s Maple Leaf Lounge.
Better travel rewards – Members can continue to redeem points for their whole trip, including car rentals, hotel stays and vacations packages.
Expanded merchandise rewards – Members will enjoy a wider range of reward options including electronics, housewares, and much more. Additionally, gift cards will be delivered digitally, and available faster than ever before.
Upgraded Aeroplan Elite Status
The transformed Aeroplan will continue to offer six membership levels – entry-level Aeroplan Debut, along with five Elite Status levels: Aeroplan 25K, 35K, 50K, 75K, and Super Elite. All the most popular Elite Status benefits remain, along with some exciting improvements beginning in 2021, including:
Priority Rewards – Elite Status Members can earn Priority Rewards vouchers entitling them to 50% off the price in points (excluding taxes, third-party fees, and where applicable, a partner booking fee) on eligible flight rewards with Air Canada and its airline partners. Members with Aeroplan 35K Status or higher will automatically receive Priority Rewards when the program launches in November.
Status Pass – Eligible Elite Status Members can share their benefits, such as priority boarding and lounge access, with friends and family members, even if they are not travelling together.
Everyday Status Qualification – The Aeroplan points that members earn every day from eligible retail, travel, and Aeroplan credit card partners will help members reach Aeroplan Elite Status.”

Zur Pressemitteilung: Air Canada Unveils Details of Transformed Aeroplan Program, Offering More Value and New Benefits

Neue Meilentabelle, keine Zuzahlungen und Stopover für Punkte

Man stellt Meilen auf Punkte um. Meilenwerte bei Air Canada werden vom Flugpreis abhängig gemacht.

Für Partnerairlines wird die Welt in vier Zonen aufgeteilt. Für jede Zone und zwischen den Zonen gibt es eigene distanzbasierende Meilenwerte.

Die neue Meilentabelle: Flight Reward Chart (PDF)

Zuzahlungen werden reduziert:

“On any Air Canada flight you purchase with points, we have eliminated additional airline surcharges. That could save you hundreds of dollars in cash at checkout. In fact, 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.”

Stopover für 5 000 Punkte:

“For flight rewards booked as of November 8, members can add one stopover per one-way flight reward, subject to a fee of 5,000 points. Stopovers will no longer be available in Canada or the United States, regardless of itinerary origin or destination.”

Prämienmeilenprogramm wird umsatzbasierend

“Beginning later in 2021, we’re introducing more intuitive earning for Air Canada flights. Instead of earning points based on the number of miles you fly, you’ll earn points based on the amount you pay for your ticket*. Keep in mind that while the way you earn Aeroplan points which you can redeem for rewards will change, how you qualify for status will not.”

Abhängig von Status und Buchungsklasse werden die Kanadischen Dollar multipliziert:

Statuslevel bleiben gleich und Benefits kommen dazu

Die Erreichung der Statuslevel verändert sich nicht:

“Just like today’s Air Canada Altitude status, you’ll reach Aeroplan Elite Status based on the number of Status Qualifying Miles (SQM) or Status Qualifying Segments (SQS), and Status Qualifying Dollars (SQD), earned on eligible flights operated by Air Canada and the Star Alliance member airlines over the calendar year (January 1 through December 31). For non-Canadian residents, the required Status Qualifying Dollars will continue to be 50% lower than the published amounts found in the chart below.”
