Regional flying just got easier

March 27, 2015

Copa Airlines has unveiled its new frequent-flyer program ConnectMiles, which will begin in May. Copa Airlines flies to 73 destinations in 30 countries, and is a member of the Star Alliance, which includes over 1,300 destinations in 193 countries around the world.

The new plan will allow members to accumulate miles based on the actual distance flown. Additionally, members will enjoy other perks, such as free upgrades, special rates on hotels and vehicle rentals, and a reciprocal relationship with United’s MileagePlus plan.
