Copa, the Panamanian Star Alliance airline, is offering double award miles from its flights from Brazil to all destinations served by Copa (some restrictions). Copa uses United’s Mileage Plus as their frequent flier program. This is derived from the past when the airline was partially owned by Continental.
The double miles offer is valid to ALL Copa destinations from Recife, Manaus and Porto Alegre. The offer from all other Copa Brazilian destinations Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, and Brasilia is valid to all other destinations than those in the United States or Canada.
This offer appears to be valid only to those Mileage Plus members that have their address in Brazil or have received direct mail about this offer. The ticket purchase and the flights must be flown between August 9 and October 15, 2013.
