Earning miles

 
All miles obtained are automatically credited to a passenger's account
 

How you earn award miles on flights will change on March 1, 2015. Learn more

The MileagePlus program enables members to earn miles simply by providing or entering their account number when making a reservation or checking in at the airport counter. All miles obtained are automatically credited to a passenger's account, whether they travel on United, Copa Airlines, Copa Airlines Colombia, or another participating airline in the program. 

Premier members earn mileage bonuses for each segment flown; however, such bonuses do not qualify to achieve Premier status.

  • Premier® 1K®: 100% over miles earned on your trip.
  • Premier Platinum: 75% over miles earned on your trip.
  • Premier Gold: 50% over miles earned on your trip.
  • Premier Silver: 25% over miles earned on your trip.

When flying, members earn the miles flown or a minimum of 500 miles per trip. For proper credit of miles earned, when making a reservation, either through our Reservation Center, copa.com, or our Sales Offices, you must provide your MileagePlus number so that our staff can add this number to your reservation; after completion of your trip, miles will be credited to your account within 72 hours. You must make sure that your reservation contains your name as it appears on your account; otherwise, the system will not credit the miles to your account.

All passengers must keep their boarding pass until miles have been credited to their account. If you need to request the credit of miles to your account of a trip, please visit the Requesting mileage credit to your MileagePlus account* within twelve months after completion of your trip. If your MileagePlus number is not included in your reservation or shows as incorrect, the process will take approximately 4-8 weeks, once the information has been entered manually in the system.
