Beginning on 8JAN, 2019, Air Miles collectors will be able to earn and redeem Miles for package vacations booked through

The announcement marks the end of a 15-year partnership between the loyalty program and Transat Distribution Canada. As of midnight on 31DEC, 2018, collectors will no longer be able to get Miles directly from Transat or use their Miles for Transat Travel Certificates or Transat eVouchers on

However, any Transat Travel certificate or Transat eVoucher that has already been redeemed on can still be used at any of the travel agencies that are part of Transat Distribution Canada's travel agency network.

With the new deal, Air Miles members will:


  • Get 1 Mile for every $20 spent on Package Vacations booked through
  • Get $100 towards a package vacation for every 909 Dream Miles used.
  • Have the flexibility to both earn and use Miles: use Dream Miles for dollars off online bookings and get Miles on the total value of a booking. 


"We're excited to partner with AIR MILES to bring even more everyday value to our customers,” said Enzo DeMarinis, President of “The new partnership offers Canadians the ability to get and use Miles on their vacation bookings, further enhancing their experience and adding value to their purchases, each time they book with us."
