Air Canada Earn Your Wings The Amazing Race Canada Edition is now on!


It took a bit of time but Air Canada officially launched the "Earn Your Wings - The Amazing Race Canada Edition" promotion late yesterday. We already brought you the details last week on the promotion but here it is once again as now we know the value and requirements of the majority of the badges. For flights to count they must be booked between yesterday and November 17th completed by December 15th. For complete details and to register for the promotion click here.

Some of the badges are easy to earn, hopefully you pre-registered as mentioned in our earlier post for "The Early Bird Badge" for 500 RaceWings, if not don't worry you will get the "Participant Badge" worth 250 RaceWings when you register. You can also earn a couple of badges and more RaceWings by sharing the promotion via social media, see the bottom of the badge legend below for the details.

The only other non-flying badge is the "Savvy Traveler" badge for Fairmont stays/Avis Car Rentals. Other than that it is all about the flying!

Earn RaceWings

Earn RaceWings and fly to the top of the leaderboard (RaceWings will help you keep score). To start you off, we’ll give you 250 RaceWings just for registering. Earn 200 RaceWings with each take-off and landing on Air Canada, Air Canada Express and Air Canada rouge. To earn more RaceWings, you’ll need to touch down and take-off from select airports around the world called Pit Stops.
