As you fly, stay at hotels, rent cars and use your travel-branded credit card, you’ll earn Aeroplan points. But system glitches and omissions on your part can happen. Let’s visit the step by step Aeroplan claim process for different situations.

How to access the “Claim missing transaction” section

First we need to access the appropriate section to claim Aeroplan points. Once you log into your Aeroplan account, click on “Activity” tab on your dashboard. A scroll down page and the “Missing something?” box will appear on the right hand side:

Claim Aeroplan points on flights

You clicked on the “Flight booking” option. Before you start claiming missing Aeroplan points on flight you must be aware of 2 important details:

Firstly, you have to wait at least 8 days before you can submit a claim. Air Canada and its Star Alliance partners don’t always post the points in the 2-3 days following the trip.

Also, you have up to 11 months to request the missing points from the flight date.

Secondly, your ticket name must match your Aeroplan member name. Also, you cannot earn or claim points from someone else’s ticket. Therefore, you can only claim for yourself, regardless of who paid for the ticket.

You can claim miles on Air Canada, Air Canada Express and Air Canada Rouge flights, as well as on all Star Alliance partner flights and code-share partners Gulf Air, Jet Airways, Middle East Airlines, Central Mountain Air, Sri Lankan Airlines, Etihad Airways, Aer Lingus and Vistara.

Keep in mind that if your trip had multiple flights, then you’ll have to claim each flight individually. Also, if you had not registered to bonus Aeroplan miles promotions then you cannot claim bonus miles.

The claim process requires the following information:

  • Ticket number;
  • The number of flights;
  • Airline name;
  • Flight number;
  • Departure date;
  • Departure airport;
  • Arrival airport;

The process is short and efficient. The points will post in the next 48 hours if all of the information is accurate.
