News, Tips & Tricks

United Airlines will be launching a new Kelowna to San
Francisco service this fall. This will be once daily flight and is good
news for Aeroplan, MileagePlus and other Star Alliance members in the
Okanogan area as it presents another option for earning and burning your
miles. The flights will start on September 20th and be operated with a
CRJ. (Source

Air Canada must have seen lots of connections from
Ontario and beyond on their Western Canada to Hawaii flights as they
have announced new Air Canada rouge service between Toronto and
Honolulu. The flights will operate twice weekly beginning November 26th
and will run year round. (Source

Aeroplan has launched a new Auction site for their
Distinction members called dExclusives. These are exclusive auctions
that you can bid your Aeroplan miles on, some are very cool and once in a
lifetime opportunities like the FIFA World Cup package of 2 business
class tickets, hotels and tickets to the semi-final and finals! We have a
separate post discussing the new feature for Distinction members with a
contest attached to it where you can win 5,000 Aeroplan miles for
letting us know which auction you would bid on or would like to see in
the future! Read more about dExclusives and enter our contest here!

To celebrate the above mentioned new Air Canada Rouge
route between YYZ and HNL, they are offering 20% off all flights to
Honolulu from anywhere in Canada. The flights must be booked by Jun 10
for travel November 21st to April 30, 15. This is prime season for
Hawaii, so if you can book this far out you should look into this offer.
