Air Canada makes additional donation to help Ukrainians to fly to Canada
Air Canada announced that it will provide 100 million Aeroplan points to the Canadian government’s campaign to welcome Ukrainians to Canada. The points will help to facilitate travel and may be used on flights operated by Air Canada and its Star Alliance partners, which include Lufthansa, LOT Polish Airlines, SWISS, and United Airlines. The Shapiro Foundation is also assisting with this initiative, and Miles4Migrants, a non-profit organization, will coordinate and organize travel bookings.
“Together with our employees, we are ready and prepared to assist and support the Canadian Government’s plans to bring Ukrainian people to Canada. With our 100 million Aeroplan points donation, we offer our global network and the strength of our Star Alliance partnerships, in facilitating travel to Canada. We are proud to work with other organizations and international programs to contribute towards a goal to enable up to 10,000 people to travel to Canada as quickly as possible,” said Michael Rousseau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Canada.
Aeroplan members can choose to donate Aeroplan points to the Ukrainian Relief Fund to help facilitate Ukrainians’ journey to Canada. Members who give Aeroplan Points to the Ukrainian Relief Fund or Miles4Migrants between April 20 and July 2022 will have their contribution doubled since the Shapiro Foundation will double the value of the points donated up to 50,000,000 points.

- An Air Canada donation of $10 per booking made on its website starting March 22 for a total donation of $250,000 to Ukraine relief aid;
