Copa Airlines to Launch Connecting Service between U.S. and Latin America


Copa Airlines has announced that it would introduce daily flights between Panama and Boston, Massachusetts, starting from 10 July, 2013. More interesting still, the airliner is set to begin a connecting service between Boston and many countries in the Central and South American continent.

The airliner will launch the service soon after it takes delivery of seven new Boeing 737-800 aircrafts.

The connecting service will largely benefit passengers who travel to the United States from LatAm cities such Sao Paulo, Bogota, San Jose, Lima and Santiago, the airliner stated in a press release.

By mid-year, Copa Airlines also will increase flight frequencies to three important destinations: Orlando; Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; and Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, adding connectivity throughout its route network.
