until June 2020.
Things are up in the air – and until the dust settles, there are no guarantees. But chances are Aeroplan is not going
down without a fight to keep their members. In fact, they’ve announced that everyone’s miles are completely secure and
that you will still be able to redeem on Air Canada and other new airlines will be added after the 2020 transition date.
The one thing that is still unclear is exactly how many miles will be required to fly post 2020, so be sure to keep an

But even with all that, savvy budget world-travellers know that collecting Aeroplan miles has always been a game worth

So is Aeroplan still worth collecting? Time will tell.
