While we normally tell you to register for offers right away this is one we would wait on registering until you know you will be staying at Hyatt locations and being able to take advantage of the benefits and meet the fast track requirements since they have a 90 day window with the promotion. Full details can be found here!Aeroplan has added Olympic Air as a new earning and redemption partner. Olympic Air is a subsidiary of Aegean Airlines and offers flights within Greece. We reached out to Aeroplan to see if this a partnership with them or via Air Canada/Star Alliance.
