How to qualify to the PreferProgram

As a PreferMember, you will enjoy the benefits of receiving more miles, preferential access, waivers, upgrades, and much more!

Flying on Copa Airlines, Copa Airlines Colombia, and any Star Alliance member airline, is how you earn the required number of qualification miles or segments you need to reach a PreferMember Status. Your PreferMember Status will be valid from the date you qualified through the end of the following year.

When PreferMembers qualify for a higher status, ConnectMiles will automatically upgrade your PreferMember Status and the new benefits will be effective immediately.
