Chase and Air Canada have a new agreement to launch an Aeroplan credit card for the U.S. marketplace. The expected launch date for the new credit card is late 2021. Here are all the available details of the new Air Canada credit card from Chase.
New Air Canada Credit Card from Chase
Air Canada and Chase are joining forces to launch a new co-branded airline credit card. The new credit card will earn points in Air Canada’s Aeroplan frequent flyer program – and part of the Star Alliance. While details of the new card remain scant, it is known that the card will launch in “late 2021.”
However, it is known that Aeroplan will now qualify as a Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer partner. Currently, Ultimate Rewards cardholders can transfer their valuable points to 17 partners at a 1:1 ratio:
Adding Air Canada will provide Chase cardholders significant value – especially with Air Canada’s impressive selection of routes to Asia and Europe from its Canadian hubs.
TD Aeroplan Visa Signature®
The new Chase Air Canada credit card will replace the current TD Aeroplan Visa Signature® Card from TD Bank. An airline card with a $95 annual fee, the TD Bank Aeroplan Visa offers 2X Aeroplan miles for Air Canada purchases and a single mile per dollar for all other purchases. The TD Bank card also features no foreign transaction fees and a decent signup bonus.
Aeroplan is Air Canada’s frequent flyer program, with miles earned redeemable for flights with Air Canada or any member of the Star Alliance of airlines, of which Air Canada is a member. The Star Alliance offers service to well over 1,000 destinations worldwide – meaning miles earned pack a serious punch.
