New Star Alliance flights: Air Canada and United

To the point All airlines are gradually announcing new flights launching (or routes reopening). Here is a summary.

New Star Alliance flights

With Aeroplan points, you can book flights with Air Canada or any Star Alliance member airline, or with an airline partner (Etihad Airways, Virgin Australia, etc.).
