Air Canada has more good news.

As little as 60,000 Aeroplan points can be used to book a business class flight from the U.S. to Singapore. Just a week ago Aeroplan added economy and business class partner redemptions with first class set to become available next year.

Air Canada's vice president of loyalty and product said in a statement that they had worked with Singapore to strengthen their relationship. Going forward, our members will enjoy better redemption availability.

Premium cabin award redemptions are usually restricted to Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer. You can't book Singapore business-class awards with any Star Alliance loyalty program.

Business-class award space is abundant on Singapore Airlines' North America routes. You can use your Aeroplan points on nonstop flights from San Francisco International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Aeroplan points can be used on Singapore Airlines' fifth-freedom flights from Los Angeles International Airport to Tokyo's Narita International Airport, Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport, and Manchester Airport in England.

Aeroplan's award prices are a lot less expensive than KrisFlyer's. Singapore Airlines flights with Aeroplan have taxes and fees that are less than 50 Canadian dollars.

The award space is bookable with Aeroplan points.

The deal

Singapore Airlines Airbus A350 business class. ZACH GRIFF/THE POINTS GUY

There are airlines in Singapore. SFO, LAX, SEA, YVR, SEA, JFK and EWR can be reached via these routes. There is award space on JFK-FRA and Iah-man. The cost is from 60,000 Aeroplan points and $35 in taxes and fees. The dates are through October. The Platinum Card from American Express gives 5 points per dollar spent on airfare booked directly with the airline, on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year, and the Chase Sapphire Reserve gives 3 points per dollar spent on travel, whichever is greater.

Maximize your Aeroplan award ticket with a stopover


You can add an Aeroplan stop along with 5,000 points. You can spend time in Singapore before moving on to another city that is bookable with Aeroplan. Select "multi-city/stopover" to book an Aeroplan stop. You can enter another city as your final destination and mark the city as Singapore. The length of your stop can be changed.


Award space can be found on the next page. This is an example of a 5,000-point stop in Singapore before continuing to the airport in the island nation of Indonesia.


You can combine airline partners on a single itinerary with Aeroplan. This means that you can fly Singapore Airlines business class from JFK to FRA and then continue on to Abu Dhabi after a stop.

Earning Aeroplan points

You can transfer points from other reward programs to Aeroplan.

Each transfer to Aeroplan needs to be in a certain number. You can get 5,000 Aeroplan points for every 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points you transfer to Aeroplan. You would have 75,000 Aeroplan points if you transferred 180,000 Marriott points.

You can maximize your Capital One miles by using Aeroplan sweet spots.

Bottom line

Air Canada has long-haul Singapore Airlines flights in business class. Aeroplan members were unable to book them when they first became available online.

Aeroplan members can reserve Singapore Airlines flights at cheaper rates than Singapore Airlines' own loyalty program.

Air Canada is working to have the largest partner lineup in the world, but they are also focused on how to go deeper with existing partners to create better value for their members.

Adding more value for Aeroplan members is a big win for Air Canada and Singapore Airlines.
