That means that people that earned status in 2019 or 2020 will have their status valid through the end of 2022.
- Priority Rewards vouchers issued in 2020 will be valid through October 31, 2022.
- Air Canada will also roll over all 2021 elite flight activity to 2022 to qualify for status through the end of 2023 if you exceed the elite requirements for your level in 2021.
- Aeroplan awards booked through April 30, 2021 can be cancelled or changed for free.
- Aeroplan points won’t expire until January 31, 2022.
With Canadian vaccination efforts far behind most of the western world and with the country holding onto onerous travel restrictions, I don’t think US airlines will feel pressure to match this status extension. But it’s still nice that Air Canada is offering it.
Now if only Air Canada would pony up refunds on flights that they cancelled…is anyone home at the Canada Transportation Agency?
