In August, we shared several improvements to your Status benefits designed to make your Elite experience simpler, more rewarding, and easier to share with loved ones. These changes included doubling eUpgrade Companion Benefits, making your Status Passes more flexible, and introducing online flight reward changes.
I also hinted that additional changes were coming. Now, as we close out 2023 and prepare for another great year of travel, we’re ready to share the details of these improvements with you.
Aeroplan 25K 和 Aeroplan 35K：办理登机手续时，适用于所有目的地
Aeroplan Super Elite：所有目的地，包括基本票：随时
More generous seating benefits
All Aeroplan Elite members and their travel companions can now enjoy the comfort of Preferred Seats, free of charge, when travelling with Air Canada on Standard fares and up. As of October 2, 2023, your Status and your travel destination determines when you’ll be able to select your complimentary Preferred Seat:
Aeroplan 25K and Aeroplan 35K: At check‑in, for all destinations
Aeroplan 50K: Anytime when travelling within Canada and the U.S. (incl. Hawaii), and at check‑in for all other destinations
Aeroplan 75K: Anytime, for all destinations
Aeroplan Super Elite: Anytime, for all destinations, including on Basic fares
Please note these changes do not apply retroactively for seat assignment fees paid prior to October 2, 2023.
加航50K或以上，可以带一个朋友 ，再加自己的伴侣和最多5个小孩，进入Air Canada Café（之前只能自己进入）。
Air Canada Café complimentary guest access
We’re expanding complimentary guest access to all Air Canada Cafés for members with Aeroplan 50K Status and above. Instead of just one guest, these members will be able to bring one guest plus their spouse and up to five dependent children to our Air Canada Cafés, just like at our Maple Leaf Lounges.
这个估计大部分人都用不上，当选择Flight Pass作为礼物时，可以同时选择额外的eUpgrade credits和 SQM。
In addition, starting January 2024, you can look forward to:
More value with Flight Passes
All Aeroplan Elite members will get more from Flight Pass activities next year. Instead of choosing between bonus eUpgrade credits and bonus SQM as part of your Select Benefits, you’ll now get both! The bonuses related to Flight Passes will be included in your Core Benefits and credited every time you complete an eligible Flight Pass activity, based on the Status you hold at that time:
Aeroplan 25K: 4 eUpgrade credits and 750 SQM
Aeroplan 35K: 6 eUpgrade credits and 1,000 SQM
Aeroplan 50K: 8 eUpgrade credits and 1,250 SQM
Aeroplan 75K: 10 eUpgrade credits and 1,500 SQM
Aeroplan Super Elite: 12 eUpgrade credits and 2,500 SQM
Simplified Lower Requalification Select Benefit
The Lower Requalification Level Select Benefit, available to Aeroplan 50K, 75K, and Super Elite Members, will be replaced by a one‑time bonus of 5,000 Status Qualifying Miles (SQM) and 5 Status Qualifying Segments (SQS). This means if you choose this new benefit, you’ll see the bonus right away, and it will count towards reaching Threshold Gifts and Threshold eUpgrades

2024 marks Aeroplan’s 40th anniversary, and we’re looking forward to celebrating this milestone with you and adding new benefits to your membership. This will be complemented by significant upgrades to our lounge network, new aircraft cabins, faster Wi‑Fi, and several other improvements we are excited to share.
As frequent travellers, my co‑workers and I have had the opportunity to connect with many members of the Aeroplan community over the course of 2023. We always gain insightful feedback from you which helps shape the improvements we make, and, we’re most grateful for your support and passion.
As always, thank you so much for your Loyalty.
