Copa Airlines, subsidiary of Copa Holdings, S.A., has begun daily nonstop service between Boston Logan International Airport and Copa’s Hub of the Americas at Tocumen International Airport in Panama, Republic of Panama, with connecting service throughout Latin America.

“Until now, Boston was the largest U.S. market without nonstop service to Latin America”, said Pedro Heilbron, CEO Copa Airlines. “We’re very proud to provide business and leisure travellers the only daily nonstop service between Boston and Panama as well as unsurpassed connectivity throughout Latin America and the Caribbean”.Cordato Partners-www.tourismlegal.com.au

In Panama passengers can make quick connections to 64 other destinations in Central, South and North America and the Caribbean. The flight offers Copa passengers convenient access to Boston, one of the U.S.’ most important academic, business, cultural and historical cities.

The flight departs Panama daily at 11:46 a.m. arriving in Boston at 6:16 p.m. The return flight departs Boston Logan daily at 9:54 a.m. arriving in Panama at 2:28 p.m. The route is operated by Copa’s Boeing Next-Generation 737-700 aircraft with 12 Business Class seats and 112 seats in the main cabin. Boston is Copa Airlines’ eighth U.S. destination which now offers service to 65 destinations in 29 countries.

“Our partnership with Copa Airlines grows the global reach of Boston and Logan by connecting New England and all of its diversity with Latin America,” said Thomas P. Glynn, Massport CEO. “Copa offers seamless connections to more than 55 Latin American destinations from its hub in Panama City and in 2012 more than 415,000 passengers travelled between Boston and the Latin American cities served by Copa”.

Through its Hub of the Americas in Panama, Copa Airlines offers flights to more international destinations than any other airline from any other hub in the Latin American region. In-transit passengers making connections do not have immigration or customs wait and baggage is checked to the final destination. Passengers have access to the region´s best duty-free shopping at the Hub of the Americas and members or passengers travelling in Business Class may visit the Copa Club VIP lounge.

Copa’s on-board service includes complimentary meals and beverages including wines and spirits, a 12-channel audio-visual entertainment system in English, Spanish and Portuguese with new movies monthly and complimentary headsets. Flight attendants are bilingual.

The airline operates one of the youngest and most modern fleets in the industry and its on-time performance above 90 percent is among the best in the world.

As a member of Star Alliance, the world’s largest global alliance, Copa Airlines provides passengers around the world with more benefits and travel options throughout the Latin American region.

In addition, Copa Airlines has a strong commercial alliance with United Airlines, including participation in the MileagePlus frequent-flyer program, codeshare flights and joint operation of the Copa Club in Panama. Copa Airlines was named “Best Airline in the Central America and Caribbean region” at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2013.
