Colombian low-cost carrier Wingo appoints new CEO

Colombian low-cost carrier Wingo has appointed Carolina Cortizo Colon as its new chief executive officer, effective immediately.

Before becoming the CEO of Wingo, subsidiary of Panama’s Copa Airlines, Cortizo held several positions with Copa, most recently that of director of pricing and revenue management.

Commenting on her appointment, Cortizo said: “Wingo is the low-cost airline with the most international recognition in the region. I am proud of becoming part of the team that made this possible. We will take Wingo to the next level with an important expansion plan, which will see us add more routes and and grow our fleet, starting in 2020.”

Copa chief Pedro Heilbron made his thoughts on the appointment known in a Twitter post, commenting: “Carolina, after seven years of successfully holding several positions with Copa, had to compete with candidates from all over the world to get selected for this new challenge.”
