MONTREAL, Oct. 15, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada has launched a new program called Air Canada Corporate Rewards that offers useful online tools to help businesses of all sizes better manage their travel, reduce costs and earn rewards to enhance travel.

Members will be eligible to receive offers for discounts on Air Canada flights and services along with rewards such as complimentary eUpgrades, Maple Leaf Lounge access, advance seat selection and other exclusive special offers," said Robert Trudeau, Director of Business Development at Air Canada. "Recently, Air Canada was ranked the preferred carrier of 81 per cent of frequent business travellers surveyed in the annual Ipsos Reid Business Traveller Survey. This program, along with other attributes, such as our expansive global network, Executive Class service, Maple Leaf Lounges and Aeroplan and Altitude loyalty programs, should further boost Air Canada's leading position as the carrier of choice among Canadian business travellers."
