September 23 Update: Air Canada announces Montreal-Shanghai service and Canadian North Aurora Rewards business class lounge offer

News, Tips & Tricks

Amidst the big news today from Marriott and Starwood, Air Canada
had their own announcement that shouldn’t be missed! As we speculated
yesterday Air Canada has announced new service to China from Montreal.
More specifically Shanghai and this makes sense seeing that Air China
already flies between Montreal and Beijing. Here is an excerpt from the
press release:

Air Canada today announced the introduction of daily year-round flights
from Montreal to Shanghai, China beginning February 16, 2017. This marks
Air Canada’s first direct service to China from Montreal as well as the
introduction of state-of-the-art Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft on
flights departing from Montreal. Tickets will be available for purchase
on and through travel agents on September 28. All Air
Canada flights provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption and, for
eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access,
priority boarding and other benefits.

Canadian North Aurora Rewards members can enjoy free
access to the Plaza Premium Lounge with free breakfast in Edmonton. This
is part of promotion to show all Aurora Rewards members what it is like
to be a Concierge member in the program as they get anywhere from 2 to
10 lounge passes depending on the elite level achieved. Find out more about this offer here.

  • Promotion runs from September 15 to December 15, 2016 and breakfast is available from 4:30am to 10am.
  • Members must bring 1. Canadian North Boarding Pass for same-day
    travel 2. Aurora Rewards membership card or member card number (must be
    a member for at least 10 days prior to entry) 3. New members (within
    10 days) may enter with piece 1, plus a digital or paper copy of their
    Welcome Letter sent immediately after joining.
