TORONTO, ON–The Toronto-Dominion Bank is celebrating a 10-year milestone as the primary credit card issuer for Aeroplan, Canada’s airline loyalty program. The first TD Aeroplan credit cards were issued in January 2014, and have provided more than 1 million Canadians with accelerated Aeroplan point-earning potential, Air Canada travel benefits and flexible redemption options ever since.

TD Aeroplan credit cardholders have redeemed more than 6 million rewards2. They’re redeeming not just on flight rewards for big destinations, but also for short-haul flights for as few as 6,000 points3, car rentals, hotels, everyday purchases like Starbucks rewards and more

“We’re thrilled to have achieved this significant milestone with Air Canada. Canadians have come to rely on TD Aeroplan credit cards as one of the fastest ways to earn rewards, and enjoy benefits to help them travel better,” said Meg McKee, Senior Vice President, Canadian Card Payments, Loyalty & Personal Lending, “Whether it’s the ever popular free first checked bag, Maple Leaf Lounge TM access or Priority Airport Services that come with select cards, TD Aeroplan cardholders are enjoying a travel loyalty program experience that only teaming up with Canada’s flag carrier can bring.”

Reflecting on this 10-year milestone, some emerging travel trends that are expected to continue into 2024 include:

Going Further, Staying Longer: Travellers are checking more off their bucket list with long stays at more far-off destinations like Thailand, Australia and Singapore. They’re investing more, but also using features, like Aeroplan’s a 4th Night Free, to make extended stays more affordable.

Chasing Stars: Moments in pop culture are influencing destination choices. Whether they’re jet setting off to an arena concert or visiting the shoot location of their favourite hotel-based drama series, show business inspiration is bringing travellers to a wider range of destinations.

More Exploring: Cultural exploration is on the rise. Canadians are using gateway destinations, like Singapore, Bangkok, São Paulo and Dubai, to broaden their horizons and explore new cultures.

Multi Gen Travel: Tracing the family history in places like Portugal, Greece and Scotland, or simply looking to spend more quality time bonding on the beach, are both ways in which we’re seeing more families travel together to make up for time lost during the pandemic.

In order to make the most of travel trends, TD offers several award-winning TD® Aeroplan® Visa* credit cards, including the TD® Aeroplan® Visa Infinite* Card which won the Top Overall Travel Rewards Credit Card and Top Airline Credit Card in the Rewards Canada 2023 Canada’s Choice awards.
