Barclays Arrival Prime Adds Aeroplan As A Transfer Partner (1.7 Prime Km = 1 Aeroplan Mile)

Barclays Premier arrival card, transfer miles in different loyalty program of the airline and they just added air Canada Aeroplan as a new partner. Unfortunately, you need to put Prime 1.7 miles to 1 Aeroplan mile. It is also a transfer rate for Japan airlines (JAL) miles, the rest of the airline transfer partners in the amount of 1.4 to 1 and is as follows:

  • Aeromexico
  • Air France/KLM flying blue
  • China Eastern
  • Etihad
  • Eva air
  • The Plane Airways
  • Malaysia Airlines
  • Qantas

Given this card has a Deposit bonus and gets 2x miles on all purchases (though 1.174-1.42 miles) I don’t think it is worth subscribing to. If they did add a bonus or improvement of transmission speed that will change. Given that they just added yet another transfer partner 1.7 bet it looks highly unlikely that they will improve the transfer speed, unfortunately. The best we can hope for is a good bonus, perhaps combined with a 60,000 mile bonus on the Arrival+? It is also worth rembering that air Canada will launch its own loyalty program to effectively replace the Airplane in 2020.
