The New Air Canada Aeroplan Program
All the resources you need
Updated on May 6, 2021


This feature is presented by:

Redeem Aeroplan points for education. Pay for tuition or repay student loans through

You may recall that just over three years we created a section on our website called The Air Canada Aeroplan Saga - All the resources you need. That section brought together all of our articles, blogs posts and media appearances when the major news broke out that Air Canada wasn't going to renew their contract with Aeroplan and were going to create their own program. Fast forward to now and a lot has happened, Air Canada bought back Aeroplan but still set about creating a new version of it. That brings us to this new section of the Rewards Canada site where we will bring together all of our blog posts, articles, media appearances and more in to one easy to use summary page.

I would recommend bookmarking this page as it will be continually updated with new articles and information as we learn more about the new program now that it is live.


The New Air Canada Aeroplan program is now live

It’s finally here - after more than three years the new Air Canada Aeroplan is now live. What follows is a recap of the what the new program entails as we originally published back in August 2020.  This is the best article to start with if you want a general overview of the new program.

Aeroplan Everday Status Qualification is officially here - earn status without flying

When the first news of the revamped Aeroplan program came out last August one feature that was being touted was being able to earn elite status from home. Unlike the limited time promotion early on during the pandemic this feature would be a full time everyday benefit of the Aeroplan program. Appropriately named Everyday Status Qualification, that benefit has officially launched now. 

TD® Aeroplan® Visa Infinite* Card Review (2021)

One of the most popular travel rewards credit cards in Canada, the TD® Aeroplan® Visa Infinite* Card was first reviewed by Rewards Canada in 2014 when it was introduced. This mainstay Aeroplan card from TD underwent many changes for the new program and thus the need for this updated review.

Which credit card earns the most Aeroplan Points?

Way back in 2012 we published a feature and infographic that compared how various credit and charge cards in Canada earned Aeroplan miles. The last time it was updated was 2014 and a lot has changed since then! It is only fitting that we provide a new and revised version of that feature as well since there have been so many changes in those 7 years. You can check out that ancient article here if you like!
