Air Canada offers a competitive and industry-leading recognition program to frequent flyers that achieve status with the airline. Similar to other airlines, Altitude Prestige 25K and Elite 35K members can enjoy priority boarding, priority seat selection, eUpgrade credits and Star Alliance Silver recognition. Additionally, Altitude Elite 35K members can also look forward to complimentary access to select Maple Leaf Lounges.
Altitude Elite 50K and Elite 75K can further enjoy upgrades to international destinations, through an eUpgrade program that is unmatched at this level across other major global carriers.
Altitude Super Elite 100K members may also enjoy our exclusive Concierge service, access to Aeroplan Flight Reward seats with no mileage premium. Altitude Elite 50K, Elite 75K and Super Elite 100K members can further enhance their travel with Star Alliance Gold recognition.
The culmination of these privileges, in addition to accelerated earning of Bonus Aeroplan Miles on eligible flight activities and Aeroplan Flight Rewards seats at designated status levels, reflect Air Canada’s dedication to delivering a highly competitive set of rewards for their most valued flyers.
Frequent flyers who travel more than One Million Miles with Air Canada are entitled to special recognition when they reach this impressive milestone. This is our way of thanking travelers like you, for your loyalty.
To learn about your balance, and to discover how many eligible miles that you’ve travelled, you can login to the Altitude website and check your dashboard or you may contact Aeroplan.
Note that only Altitude Qualifying Miles earned on flights operated by Air Canada, Air Canada Express (including its predecessors, such as Jazz) and Air Canada Rouge (since 1988) are included in this total. Flights operated by other airline partners, including the Star Alliance member airlines, as well as promotional AQM, do not apply.
You can reach Air Canada Altitude status based on the number of Altitude Qualifying Miles or Altitude Qualifying Segments earned on eligible flights operated by Air Canada, Air Canada Express, Air Canada Rouge and the Star Alliance member airlines between January 1 and December 31, 2019. Note that you will also need to complete the Altitude Qualifying Dollars (AQD) requirement. All 2019 Air Canada Altitude statuses will be updated by March 01. Following the conclusion of the qualification period, your status will be valid for the next benefit year after you have been invited to choose your Select Privileges.
With the launch of Air Canada Altitude, we changed how we refer to Air Canada Status Miles and Air Canada Status Segments. Now they are known as Altitude Qualifying Miles (AQM) and Altitude Qualifying Segments (AQS), respectively.
Note that Altitude Qualifying Miles, like Air Canada Status Miles before them, are also Aeroplan Miles, which can be redeemed for Aeroplan Rewards.
As one of Air Canada’s largest partners, Air Canada acquired Aeroplan in support of our efforts to build a better loyalty program. This means that the relationship between Air Canada and Aeroplan remains business as usual for our customers. Your Aeroplan Miles will be honoured on a one-to-one basis in our new loyalty program when it launches in 2020, allowing you to continue earning Aeroplan Miles with confidence. In the meantime, Air Canada continues to work towards building a new loyalty program that will use Aeroplan Miles as the primary currency.
