Aeroplan unveils new top-tier FFP benefits for 2007
Air Canada has recently announced the benefits available to its most loyal frequent flyer customers for 2007, with top-tier members (Air Canada Super Elite, Elite or Prestige) receiving custom-chosen luxuries in addition to the programme's core set of benefits. The airline has also added a number of benefits tied to its growing range of Flight Passes.
According to Charles McKee, vice president of marketing for Air Canada, the airline's aim this year is to again reward its loyal customers with premium benefits and choices - particularly with meaningful privileges for those who spend so much of the year travelling with the airline.
Email notification E-mail notifications about the achievement of top tier status has already begun and will continue into early 2007. This year marks the first time that all top tier communications are conducted via e-mail and, as a result, all members are being encouraged to validate their e-mail address through Aeroplan.com.
Top tier members qualify for Air Canada Super Elite, Elite or Prestige status by earning Air Canada Status Miles and Air Canada Status Flight Segments on eligible Air Canada and Star Alliance partner flights. Status Miles and Status Flight Segments earned in 2007 also count toward Air Canada top tier benefits for 2008.
The final lists of rewards, benefits and customisation options are available immediately from the Aeroplan web site.
Aeroplan members earn miles through the programme's network of more than 60 partners, representing more than 100 brands in the financial, retail and travel sectors. Miles earned may be redeemed for Aeroplan's ClassicFlight Rewards, ClassicPlus Flight Rewards, and Star Alliance Flight Rewards. In 2005, more than 1.35 million round-trip flight rewards were issued.
