Copa Airlines has announced it’ll add three new routes to its network as part of continued efforts to expand its operations.
The three services will include departure from Tulum in Mexico, the focal point of many airlines’ most recent expansions, whether to or from the location.
Ultimately, the airline will expand its network to 75 destinations across 32 countries in Central, South, and North America, with notable operations towards the Caribbean.
The New Routes
Copa Airlines says it’ll boost its offering towards North America by adding Raleigh-Durham to its network. By launching this route, the company says it’ll join the 15 destinations the airline serves in the United States.
The route will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. It will commence operation on June 21, 2024, and thus be initially served four times per week.
Additionally, from June 26, 2024, the airline will launch service between Tulum and Panama, making this its fifth destination in Mexico.
The flight to Tulum will also operate four times per week, with frequency on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays and a morning departure of 0745.
Lastly, from June 25, 2024, the airline will launch a service between Panama and Florianopolis, the capital of Santa Catarina.
Slated to fly thrice weekly, Copa expects departures on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, with an afternoon departure of 1523.
Comments From Executive
We remain steadfast in our purpose to shorten distances and facilitate connections, allowing Panama to continue being the bridge that unites thousands of people throughout the continent, while contributing to the economic development of the communities where we operate. This strategic expansion not only promotes cultural exchange in the region but also encourages and deepens tourism and business ties in the United States, Mexico, and Brazil. It also opens up the opportunity for more tourists to enjoy the wonders of Panama through the Panama Stopover program.Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa Airlines
