Air Transat becomes the next Aeroplan preferred airline partnerAeroplan is on a tear right and are showing Air Canada they don’t need the airline or the Star Alliance to succeed. Last week they rejected the bid for Air Canada et al to buy Aeroplan and added Porter Airlines as a preferred airline partner.

It once again makes sense for a  portion of Aeroplan members who only collect a few miles here and there – they aren’t going to earn enough miles to fly to Australia and need some closer in options. Starting July 2020, Aeroplan Members will be able to both earn Aeroplan Miles when booking flights on Flair routes and redeem for flights at fixed-rate fares…
