Chase, Air Canada & Mastercard partner to launch Aeroplan U.S. credit cardChase, the U.S. consumer and commercial banking business of JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Air Canada, Canada’s largest airline and a Star Alliance founding member, has announced a strategic partnership, making Chase the exclusive issuer of the airline’s Aeroplan U.S. credit card. As part of the collaboration, Mastercard will become the exclusive payments network for the new offering in the U.S.

The announcement follows the recent launch of transformed Aeroplan loyalty program by Air Canada which brings more value, increased flexibility, unparalleled access to Air Canada, and flight rewards with over 35 partner airlines.

The new Aeroplan Credit Card from Chase is expected to launch in late 2021. Aeroplan will also become a transfer partner in Chase’s Ultimate Rewards program, starting in late 2021.

“Mastercard, Air Canada, and Chase share the same commitment to putting the cardholder at the center – providing meaningful experiences that support everyday spending and passion points. We look forward to working with these terrific partners to deliver a compelling value proposition that resonates with cardholders,” said Linda Kirkpatrick, President, U.S. Issuers at Mastercard.
