Air Canada Aeroplan members can now book award flights on Cathay Pacific (select routes only) and GOL online.
Previously, members have needed to call the customer service to have tickets on these two carriers issued.
You can access Aeroplan’s website for the announcement here.
Note that Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon awards are only available on the following routes:
Hong Kong to/from:
- Chiang Mai, Thailand
- Phuket, Thailand
- Bangkok, Thailand
- Cebu, Philippines
- Manila, Philippines
- Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
- Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
- Hanoi, Vietnam
Aeroplan members can book GOL flights both in economy and business, although GOL’s “businesses” it an economy seat with the middle seat blocked with some (inedible) F&B thrown in.
Nobody wants to call in award reservations and waste their time rather than just doing it on the website. I am glad that Air Canada slowly brings all partner bookings online. It is 2020, after all.
