You can use your miles to travel to more than 1,350 worldwide destinations on Copa Airlines, Copa Airlines Colombia, United, or any participating airline* in the MileagePlus program.
After obtaining a minimum of 75% of the miles required for a award trip, you have the option of buying the remaining 25% at US $35 plus taxes for every 1,000 miles. Miles must be purchased in blocks of 1,000 miles, and can only be purchased if you are going to redeem a award for more than 20,000 miles.
Award tickets are classified by series or geographical areas. In each of these, the number of miles needed to receive a ticket for the various classes varies. MileagePlus award tickets do not qualify for miles accruals or upgrades to Premier status.
