Aeroplan rolls out the Tangerine carpet for a top notch flight experience
On each flight operated by Air Canada, all seats were reserved specifically for CIBC Aero cardholders/Aeroplan Members and their guests at ClassicFlight Aeroplan rates. The experience includes dedicated check-in, complimentary bar and snack service, and two free bags in Economy class. In Montreal, guests on the flight were pampered with baggage assistance, special give-aways for adults and children and an opportunity to kick-start their vacation into high gear with a free massage at the gate. Guests on the Toronto flight will get the same experience on March 13th.
“Today marks a first for Aeroplan and CIBC, collaborating to enable this special flight to Orlando Florida,” said David Klein, Vice President, Marketing & Innovation, Aeroplan. “We’re delighted to work with CIBC to offer our members who are CIBC Aero cardholders this unique flight reward on a high-demand route for families during the spring break periods out of Montreal and Toronto. This is the second edition of the Welcome Aboard Event where we’ve put together an exclusive Aeroplan flight experience for our members and we are delighted with how well it has been received.”
”We jumped at the opportunity to get on this exclusive flight for our family of five to Orlando,” said Aeroplan Member and CIBC cardholder George Di Sante. “We look forward to the flight and our week of vacation in which we’re planning to see some Orlando attractions and explore the Florida coast.”
Aeroplan has offset both flights’ greenhouse gas emissions with an investment in high-quality offset projects through Offsetters, a leading Canadian provider of carbon management solutions. Aeroplan’s own Carbon Offset Program enables Aeroplan Members to redeem their Aeroplan Miles for carbon offsets and offset the emissions generated by their air travel, car travel and household energy use. The credits are transferred to Offsetters and then invested in renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in Canada and around the world.
