Marriott Rewards has launched a new airline partner that is Copa Airlines ConnectMiles.
Copa Airlines used United’s MileagePlus as its frequent flier program (leftover when the airline was partly owned by Continental), but decided to break apart and launch its own.
You can access Marriott’s web page for partners here.
Copa Airlines ConnectMiles members can now earn miles for their stays at Marriott hotels.
If one stays a lot at Marriott hotels, the Marriott Travel Packages are the vest way to earn miles combined with 7 night hotel award (read more here).
The other typical partners (hotels and car rentals) are likely to launch their Copa Airlines ConnectMiles partnerships soon.
Earning miles for Marriott stays make very little sense. I do, however, use Marriott Travel Packages for hotel awards combined with airline miles.
