How many miles do I need to earn to qualify for a PreferMember status?

To achieve these statuses, you must accumulate the minimum number of miles or qualification segments (flown on Copa Airlines, Star Alliance member airlines and / or other associated airlines) and at least 4 flight segments must be performed in an eligible class and operated by Copa Airlines for one calendar year (January 1 to December 31) to achieve status.

The four statuses are: 

  • PreferMember Silver requires 25,000 miles or 20 segments
  • PreferMember Gold requires 45,000 miles or 40 segments
  • PreferMember Platinum requires 75,000 miles or 70 segments
  • PreferMember Presidential requires 95,000 miles or 90 segments.

To give members a greater opportunity to achieve a PreferMember status, adjusted the qualification criteria of all levels for this year 2021. Learn more here.
