About VIPorter

With VIPorter, you can redeem for flights and earn benefits faster than any other Canadian airline. We’ve built a program that works for you!

How it works

Earn and redeem for a flight

When you book a flight, you’ll earn VIPorter points on every dollar you spend which you can redeem for future travel! You can easily redeem for a flight using only your points, or a combination of dollars and points.

Earn Avid Traveller perks

From a flight, to checked bags, seat selection and more, you'll earn on every dollar you spend with Porter. When you meet certain qualifying spend thresholds, you’ll experience additional travel benefits and increased VIPorter points earning ratio.

Program highlights

  • PorterReserve certificates

    Once you reach $3,000 in qualifying spend (equal to the VIPorter Venture level), you’ll receive one certificate to fly in a PorterReserve seat. You’ll earn one more certificate for every additional $2,000 in qualifying spend during that same calendar year. PorterReserve certificates provide you with a confirmed seat that includes premium snacks or a fresh meal, beverages, 2 checked bags, and more leg room! Your effortlessly complete, all-inclusive travel experience is confirmed, only with Porter!

  • Head Start for Avid Traveller members

    If you've already earned enough qualifying spend to experience your current Avid Traveller level, you will carry over any additional spend into the next year. This gives you a head start towards next year's VIPorter membership goal!

  • Membership level extension for parental leave

    We know how important it is to have your feet on the ground when you’re welcoming a new addition to the family. If you are an Avid Traveller, you can request an extension on your membership level so you resume flying with the same benefits as before.

Rewards and benefits

Here’s what you get once you start flying as a member.
