[AIRLINE] United Airlines Destinations Departing from Canada (updated April 16, 2014)

Air Canada is a member of Star Alliance. When you fly with Air Canada, you can earn Aeroplan points. Aeroplan points can be used to redeem with Star Alliance partners, one of which is United Airlines. I have used my Aeroplan points on United Airlines flights many times. What I like most about using my Aeroplan points on the partner airlines instead of Air Canada is the lower tax and fuel surcharge to maximize the value of my points.

I recently use 45,000 Aeroplan points + $162 for a return flight from Ottawa, Canada to Honolulu, Hawaii, which is a great value to me. All my flights were on United Airlines, except for one segment on Air Canada. Had I flew all segments on United Airlines, the fuel surcharge would have been even cheaper.

What is great is that most United Airline flights flying out of Canada is towards a major U.S. hub, which can connect you to many other places around the world.

If you fly often enough on United Airline flights, you can completely bypass Aeroplan and just sign up for a MileagePlus account instead.
