ALL ABOUT ALTITUDE
Air Canada Altitude is designed to enhance the travel experiences of our most frequent flyers. Open to world travellers, businesspeople, adventurers, dreamers, doers and curious people like you, Altitude is your ticket to an ever-growing world of experiences.
Reach Air Canada Altitude status based on the number of Altitude Qualifying Miles (AQM) or Altitude Qualifying Segments (AQS) earned on eligible flights operated by Air Canada and the Star Alliance member airlines between January 1 and December 31.
Note that you will also need to complete the Minimum Air Canada Flight Requirement ...Of course, this should be breeze for a jetsetter like you.
Earning AQM & AQS
Travel to over 1,200 destinations worldwide.
Sometimes you arrive sooner than expected.
See the chart below for the number of AQM or AQS required to reach Altitude status. Remember, as part of this, you'll have to meet the Minimum Air Canada Flight Requirement as outlined above in order to reach any Altitude status.
