List of no YQ (fee) routes for Aeroplan bookings

This is a list of all international routes that go to Central/South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Oceania that are available to Aeroplan members for booking low YQ (fee) award tickets going to either Canada or the USA. This list can be quite helpful when you’re trying to build a low YQ Aeroplan award ticket. To learn more about YQ on Aeroplan and tips on how to built a great award ticket, read: How to Avoid Aeroplan Booking Fees.

All Canadian routes (YUL/YYZ/YVR) are bolded. I have posted all routes that are currently operating, or will be operating within the year.

I have not posted anything to Mexico/Carribean. I have only posted flights that are ex. USA and Canada. So, flights operated by say, UA, might operate between point X and Y in Asia. Those flights have not been posted.

I developed this list as original content. This was a huge endeavour, and I make mistakes. If you notice something that is out-of-date, is wrong, etc, please contact me.

Note that I will update this list periodically. The last time this list was updated was July 11th 2014. 

I will try my best to make this list as complete as possible, but no guarantees.

You can also see a list of all the OneWorld flights leaving/going to US/Canada.

*Aeroplan charges YQ on LOT, but it’s extremely low.


  1. Good job on the listing

    One note
    I think OZ (Asiana) is only temporarily no-YQ for the moment, until Aeroplan fixes it? because they’ve always charged it

    I’d be happy if they never fix it though
