Canadian North launches their own Frequent Flyer Program: Aurora Rewards

Canadian North announced today the launch of their own Frequent Flyer Program (FFP) called Aurora Rewards. Right off the bat one key piece of information sticks out, Aeroplan members will still earn Aeroplan Miles on Canadian North flights in addition to Aurora Rewards points! This is the only airline in Canada that will reward you miles/points in two FFPs on one single flight.

Here are the highlights of the new Aurora Rewards program

Earning Points
You will earn anywhere between 25% and 125% of the actual flights miles when you fly on Canadian North. Points earned are dependent on the fare class:
On flights under 500 actual flight miles your points will be based upon a 500 mile flight (just like the example above).

And as we mentioned above Aeroplan members will earn miles/points in both programs. In order to collect your Aeroplan Miles, you must be enrolled in the Aurora Rewards Program and include your Aeroplan® number on your profile.

Elite Status
The program even includes Elite Status levels called Aurora Concierge. The three elite levels are Silver, Gold and Diamond. To achieve Aurora Concierge status you must meet the following requirements:

and the benefits associated with each level

Using your Aurora Rewards points
Pretty simple redemption structure:
12,000 pointgs for a return Short Haul and 20,000 points for a return Long Haul. A Short Haul is a flight up to 625 miles, or:
  • Within the Kitikmeot and to/from Yellowknife
  • Within the Qikiqtani and to/from Iqaluit
  • Rankin Inlet – Iqaluit/Yellowknife
Points can also be used for merchandise rewards:

Finally to celebrate the launch of the program you'll 200 points just for signing up and be entered for a chance to win 100,000 points (plus get additional entries for every Canadian North flight)
