Air Canada Earn Your Wings 4th Edition - AC Altitude members can earn up to 750,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles

Yesterday the 4th Edition of Air Canada's Earn Your Wings launched and like the 3rd edition, it is strictly for Air Canada Altitude members. The 4th Edition looks to be almost an exact copy of the 3rd edition.  The only differences we can spot so far are the 3rd edition only had 62 airports qualifying and it also had Fairmont and Avis components which are absent this time.

The premise of this and past Earn Your Wings promotions is to earn Wings by completing various earning actions.  In this fourth version you will receive 2,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles for every 2,000 Wings collected.  The more 'Wings' you collect the more Aeroplan miles you earn with a maximum  of 750,000 Aeroplan Miles awarded per individual. If you end up in the top 20 Wings earners you will get an equal share of 10,000,000 Aeroplan Miles (500,000) over and above the miles you earn from the promotion.

Your first 500 Wings are super easy as they are awarded just for registering for Earn Your Wings.

Here are all the methods to receive wings with EYW:

  • Earn 500 Wings simply for having Air Canada Altitude status upon registration.
  • Earn a minimum of 100 Wings for every take off and for every landing on any Air Canada flight (including flights operated by Air Canada Express) and Air Canada rouge. This translates to a minimum of 200 Wings per flight segment. There are 67 airports that will earn a higher amount of Wings for every take off and every landing. Refer to the list of cities that will earn Destination badges.
  • Earn extra Wings by collecting badges (see Collect Badges).
  • Finish in the Top 20 and earn your equal share of 10,000,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles.
Example of how wings are earned

To participate in Earn Your Wings you must be an Air Canada Altitude member and register online at: http://earnyourwings.aircanada.com/ by May 31st. Flights booked between April 20th and May 31st that are completed by July 12th will count towards earning your wings.

  1. I collect Aeroplan miles. How do I know if I'm an Altitude member too?

  2. You would have received a package from Air Canada letting you know if you are an AC Altitude member. Altitude is AC's program recognizing those who fly Air Canada and Star Alliance a lot
