ConnectMiles members also can earn miles and redeem rewards on travel to more than 1,300 destinations in the Star Alliance global route network. A press release from the company noted that ConnectMiles offers members exclusive benefits and promotions.
The program is designed to enhance its relationship with frequent flyers and provide them with exclusive benefits and follows the same model for earning and redeeming miles as previous Copa loyalty programs.
ConnectMiles rewards customers for distance flown on Copa Airlines flights, as well as the opportunity to earn additional miles depending on the purchased fare and the passenger’s status in the program.
Members of ConnectMiles also will be able to earn miles and redeem rewards on travel to more than 1,300 destinations in the Star Alliance global route network, which includes the world’s major air carriers.
ConnectMiles members will have access to competitive mileage-redemption fees, adjusted to Copa’s network, and can use miles to upgrade from economy class when traveling with purchased tickets. Qualification requirements for Prefer Program status will be more flexible; members who attain the status will be eligible for courtesy upgrades and other benefits.
“We are very proud of our new ConnectMiles loyalty program,” said Pedro Heilbron, Copa Airlines CEO. “ConnectMiles aligns perfectly with our goal of continuing to provide our customers world-class service designed to fit their travel needs, and demonstrates our strength as a company.”
“Copa’s close and successful relationship with United Airlines will continue,” Heilbron added. “Our new loyalty program includes reciprocal benefits between ConnectMiles and MileagePlus, including better access to available travel reward seats and acceptance of upgrade certificates between the two programs.”
