May 24 Update: Aeroplan Transfer Miles discount, new Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan partners, Shangri-La Toronto deal

News, Tips & Tricks

Aeroplan is once again running a discounted offer for
transferring miles between accounts. Normally it costs 2 cents per mile
to transfer to another account but until June 4th you can do so at 1.5
cents per miles. Still not the best deal but if you have some stagnant
miles that can help another account reach an award level it may be worth
it to do so. Find out more here.

Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan has followed in the footsteps of
Air Canada Altitude and British Airways Executive Club by offering
Mileage Plan elite status members an option to extend status if you stop
travelling for pregnancy or parental leave. Find out more here.

And if that wasn’t the only good new from Alaska Airlines
they have announced more ways to earn and burn miles. The ability to
redeem Mileage Plan miles is now available on Condor. We mentioned this
partnership a few months ago but at time only earning was available but
now you can also redeem for flights on Condor. This is pretty
significant seeing that Condor does fly between Calgary, Whitehorse,
Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax and Germany. Here is the award chart for using Mileage Plan miles on Condor from Canada to Europe:

They have also announced a new partnership with Finnair. Currently
you will be able to earn Mileage Plan miles on Finnair flights (they do
serve Toronto over the summer season) and eventually you’ll be able to
redeem on Finnair flights. For Finnair Plus members you can earn and
already burn for flights on Alaska. (Source Alaska Airlines)
