Air Canada Earn Your Wings 5th Edition - AC Altitude members can earn up to 750,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles

On Monday the 5th Edition of Air Canada's Earn Your Wings launched and like the previous two editions, it is strictly for Air Canada Altitude members. The 5th Edition looks to be almost an exact copy of the 3rd and 4th versions. Like last year, this year's offer only awards badges for flying, there are no hotel or car rental components but this time we see 79 airports where you can earn badges versus the 67 seen in 2015.

Update: Per Dee's comment below Tango fares are not eligible this year

The premise of this and past Earn Your Wings promotions is to earn Wings by completing various earning actions.  In this fifth 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 30 Wings earners you earn your share of an additional 10 million miles (1-10) or another 10 million miles (11-30) 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 2016 status upon registration.
  • Earn a minimum of 100 Wings for every takeoff and for every landing on any Air Canada flight (including flights operated under the Air Canada Express brand) and Air Canada rouge. This translates to a minimum of 200 Wings per flight segment. There are 79 airports that will earn a higher amount of Wings for every takeoff and every landing. Refer to the list of cities that will earn Destination badges and Super Destination badges.
  • Earn extra Wings by collecting badges (see Collect Badges).
  • Finish in the Top 10 and earn your equal share of 10,000,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles. Finish between positions 11–30 and you’ll earn your equal share of another 10,000,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles.
