As a Canadian, Aeroplan is my favourite frequent flyer program. I have flown to Hawaii, Ontario and have a BIG trip planned for 2015 (future blog post).
I was shocked to hear that they have been around for 30 years!
They are constantly evolving and they try to improve the program ( I know many programs are being devalued but understand that it is a business and they have many great redemptions for Canadians). It basically started as a promotional tool for Air Canada’s business travelers but has evolved to the Distinction program with all sorts of retailers involved. It is also a spin off of Air Canada that was the first publicly traded loyalty company.
We have a great contest for our Canadian Travel Hacking and Boarding Area readers.
How about a chance to win 30,000 Aeroplan Miles (That’s enough for 2 short-haul ClassicFlights or 1 long-haul ticket in North America or one-way ticket to Europe).
Simply tell us where you would go with the miles if we put 30,000 Aeroplan miles in your account?
This contest ends August 7, 2014.
