Copa Airlines, subsidiary of Copa Holdings, S.A. {NYSE: CPA}, and member of the Star Alliance global airline network, has unveiled its new passenger-loyalty program ConnectMiles, designed to enhance its relationship with frequent flyers and provide them with exclusive benefits. The program 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 PreferProgram status will be more flexible; members who attain the status will be eligible for courtesy upgrades and other benefits.
