This new partnership will be very interesting thanks to Aeroplan’s new chart, which will be in effect from November 8, 2020.

Here are the different distances regarding international destinations. Note that the flight from New Delhi to Frankfurt will be less than 4,000 miles away,which means that a one-way economy flight will cost 25,000 Aeroplan points or 45,000 points in business!
