COMPARE AEROPLAN SURCHARGES AND FEES

Surcharges on Aeroplan award tickets can be significant. They consist of various items such as fuel surcharges, sundry charges (such as for security, facilities and passengers), taxes (HST in Canada, airport taxes etc.) and other smaller fees (e.g. airport fees). The final cost of all surcharges is also dependent on which airlines are being used and how many legs the itinerary has. The most significant cost is usually the fuel surcharge. Trans-oceanic flights usually incur several hundreds of dollars in surcharges.

Fuel surcharges do not apply to all Star Alliance airlines, the following carriers incur a fuel surcharge when booking through Aerolpan: Air Canada, Adria, Asiana, Austrian, LOT Polish, Lufthansa, TAP Portugal, THAI.
