Route and Airline
Hello Lucky big fan. Planning a trip to Africa next winter want to use Air Canada reward points. Prefer First or business class. What airlines and route. FLEXIBLE on dates and route.
Looking at Johannesburg but flexible want to make our way to Namibia and Kenya.
We are 2 senior ladies.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Linda, where are you departing from?
For Aeroplan miles, you’d have to redeem with a Star Alliance member airline. Assuming you’re flying from North America, Turkish Airlines has many flights connecting major cities in Canada and USA to African cities via their hub in IST. Once you’re in Africa, you can look at using your aeroplan miles on South African Airways to WDH and NBO. Or you can try our Ethiopian and add a stopover in ADD, but from lucky’s experience, not sure if that suggestion is a good idea! Haha
