Air Canada is the flag carrier and the largest airline of Canada by fleet size and passengers carried. The airline, which was founded in 1937, is also a founding member of Star Alliance. Together with its regional partners, the airline operates on average more than 1,602 scheduled flights daily.
Aeroplan is Air Canada's frequent flyer rewards program, both allowing for points collection and spending, as well as status and rewards as an Air Canada customer. After Air Canada and Aeroplan changed the division of points collection and redemption, Air Canada introduced an internal rewards program, Altitude. The two programs operate in conjunction.
The status level is determined by Altitude standing and there are FIVE different tiers: Basic, Prestige 25K, Elite 35K, Elite 50K, Elite 75K and Super Elite 100K. The latter three are called "Top Tier" membership levels and provide travel benefits such as upgrades, lounge access, priority services (e.g., check-in, luggage handling), and bonuses when earning miles through air travel.
