Air Canada Completes Acquisition of Aeroplan

It’s official. Aimia Canada Inc.  (owner of Aeroplan) is now sold to Air Canada for approximately $497 million (Press releases: Air Canada, Aimia).

Deep down inside, I had still hoped that the deal would fall through, because I was excited for all the initiatives that Aeroplan was planning in my interview with their CEO, for life after Air Canada. I really wanted to see Aeroplan compete with Air Canada, as competition is usually a positive for consumers.

Instead, I will try my best to look at the positives of this new deal, which takes effect in 2020. From now until then, it will be business as usual.

Going forward, I hope that we will see an enhanced Air Canada / Aeroplan program. Perhaps starting with eliminating taxes and fuel surcharges on Air Canada award tickets?

More importantly, what would you like to see happen beyond 2020 with a fully integrated Aeroplan/Air Canada loyalty program? Please share in the comment section below!
