Copa Airlines announces 2014 growth plans, three new destinations

Copa Airlines, subsidiary of Copa Holdings, has announced growth plans for the first half of 2014, which include the launch of new direct flights from Panama to: Montreal; Canada, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Georgetown, Guyana. In addition, Copa will add aircraft to its fleet, for a 10% growth in capacity.

The new routes will strengthen Copa’s position in regional air travel and provide passengers in Montreal, Fort Lauderdale and Georgetown the fastest and most efficient way to connect with Latin America via Copa’s Hub of the Americas at Tocumen International Airport in Panama, thus increasing travel options and improving connections throughout Copa Airlines’ extensive route network.

“Our sustained growth in recent years has allowed us to reinforce our leadership in the region and to continue the Hub of the Americas’ position as the most successful and efficient hub for travel to and from, as well as within, Latin America,” explained Copa CEO Pedro Heilbron. “Our success has benefited Latin America, and has stimulated business and the creation of new jobs and investment in Panama.”

The airline will add eight new Boeing Next Generation 737-800 aircraft in 2014, bringing its total fleet to 98 state-of-the-art aircraft, and increasing capacity by 10 percent.
