Upgrade your Travel Experience with the launch of American Express AeroplanPlus Reserve Card

TORONTO— On January 27, 2015, American Express launched its premium loyalty rewards credit card in partnership with Aeroplan and Air Canada. The upgraded AeroplanPlus Reserve Card offers premium travel experiences, designed for the frequent traveller and avid Aeroplan member in mind, with additional travel benefits from three of Canada’s prestigious travel brands. To welcome the latest news in luxury travel, myself alongside 1LOVETO and other influential brand ambassadors such as Marcus Troy and Catriona of Coco & Cowe, were treated to a luxury three-course dinner, compliments of One Restaurant at the Hazelton Hotel. 

The American Express AeroplanPlus Reserve Card is a great option for Aeroplan Members who are looking for a more robust range of travel benefits, and the ability to earn Aeroplan Miles quickly to get them to their dream reward goal.” — Shauna Emerson O’Neil, Chief Customer Officer of Canada, Aimia

“Everyday our planes carry thousands of American Express and Aeroplan Members from around the world, so we’re thrilled to partner on such a premium card product,” said Ian Di Tullio, Senior Director of Customer Engagement Marketing with Air Canada. “The new card is specifically designed to enhance the travel experience by providing complimentary first checked baggage, priority check-in, and unlimited access to Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounges,” he added.

In addition to an outstanding evening with Amex Canada, we all got a taste of the new American Express AeroplanPlus Reserve Card experience with complimentary valet and taxi service for the entire night; which made for a hassle-free and convenient commute to and from. Dining with Amex for the evening gave us a luxury "staycation" dinner experience with topnotch service and hospitality. Once you live the Amex Life, it’s hard to go back to anything else.
