Top 5 Tips to Booking Flight Rewards with Aeroplan

Check out our Market Fare Flight Rewards
Don’t just search for Fixed Mileage Flight Rewards (formerly called ClassicFlight Rewards). By expanding your search to our Market Fare Flight Rewards, you have access to any available seat on Air Canada flights, at any time. Plus, from time to time you could find Great Deals. They occur when Market Fare Flights are available for less than Fixed Mileage Flights so you can book for even fewer miles!

Fly in style
Why limit yourself to Economy Class, when you can fly Premium Economy,  
Business, or First Class? In fact, Aeroplan offers the best value in the market for Business Class compared to all other loyalty programs in Canada[1].  

Visiting Paris or London? See them both for no extra miles with a planned stopover. With Fixed Mileage Flight Rewards, you can fly through up to two cities for no additional miles. It’s like taking a trip within a trip.  Just select the multi-city option to include stopovers in your trip.

Think one-way ticket
If you can’t find a round-trip flight or don’t have enough miles, you can always book a one-way flight reward. With one-way Fixed Mileage Flight Rewards, you can fly to any city in North America at just 50% of the round-trip flight reward mileage. As for one-way Market Fare Flight Rewards, the number of miles needed is still based on the market fare at the time of booking.

Check nearby airports  
Can’t find a flight going to a specific airport? Try another one close by. For example if you want to go to NYC but can’t find a flight to LaGuardia airport, don’t forget to look for availability to JFK or Newark airports.
