Copa Airlines inaugurates direct flights between Panama City and the island of Barbados

 
  • From today, July 17, Copa Airlines becomes the only airline that connects Barbados with Latin America, uniting the island with 18 cities in the Caribbean, 18 in North America, nine in Central America and 31 in South America, thanks to the connectivity of the Hub of the Americas, in Panama.

  • Barbados becomes the 76th destination of the Panamanian airline in the continent and number 16 in the Caribbean, strengthening its leadership in the region.

  • The Panama-Barbados connection starts with two weekly flights, on Tuesdays and Fridays, boosting the economy of Barbados and opening new opportunities for commercial and tourist development with the rest of the American continent.

Panama City, July 17, 2018

Dock in Barbados island

Copa Airlines {NYSE: CPA}, a subsidiary of Copa Holdings, SA, and a member of the global Star Alliance airline network, inaugurates today its new route between Bridgetown, Barbados, and Panama City, being the only airline that will connect this Caribbean island with Latin America through the Hub of the Americas, located at Tocumen International Airport in Panama City.

“With the inauguration of this flight, we strengthen our presence in the Caribbean region, where we now serve 16 destinations connecting them through the Hub of the Americas with an additional 80 destinations in North, Central, South America and the Caribbean. It is with great pride that we inaugurate this connection that undoubtedly translates into the generation of important opportunities for the development of tourist and commercial activity, both for Barbados, and for Panama as we are the only airline that will connect this island with Latin America,” commented Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa Airlines.

"This new Copa service to Barbados will continue to position the island as a global destination for unique experiences and culture. We strongly believe that connectivity is key to tourism growth, which not only results in more tourists but also in the creation of jobs and opportunities for progress. We are thrilled to share our incomparable natural beauty, traditions, gastronomy and varied activities not only with Panama, a country with which Barbados has strong historical ties, but with the rest Latin American through this new gateway” said William “Billy” Griffith, CEO of the Barbados Tourism and Marketing Inc. (BTMI).

Barbados, in addition to its paradisiacal beaches, promises its visitors a number of activities, such as catamaran rides or cavern tours. Rated one of the most attractive beaches in the world in 2008 by Concierge.com, 'Crane Beach' in St. Philip, stands out, being one of the main destinations for travelers.

The island of Barbados also offers an authentic Caribbean experience full of culture and history that is reflected in its beautiful landscapes full of tradition. It is also recognized as "the culinary capital of the Caribbean", where visitors can enjoy a wide gastronomic offer that combines Caribbean flavors with African-American roots.

This new connection will allow more tourists to enjoy an infrastructure of first world accommodation, with the hotel sector being one of the fastest growing and investment in recent years, representing an important economic activity for the island. Accommodations vary from quaint villas, to attractive family hotels and award-winning five-star resorts.

“I celebrate with Copa Airlines the opening of this new flight to the city of Bridgetown, Barbados, not only because it strengthens Panama's position as a point of connection with the world, but also because this one in particular, will directly connect two countries already united by the history of the construction of the Panama Canal. As a descendant of Barbadian immigrants, whose population represented 44% of the canal workforce, for me it represents a connection that will bring our history, our families and cultures closer. I hope that this new destination will generate, in addition to a major tourist exchange for both nations, a reunion of families that came together more than 100 years ago, to connect the world. Congratulations Copa,” said Deputy Mayor of Panama, Raisa Banfield.

Copa Airlines CM260 flight will leave Panama on Tuesdays and Fridays, departing at 9:30 a.m. (local time) and arriving in Bridgetown at 2:00 p.m. (local time). The CM261 return flight will operate on the same days, departing at 3:00 p.m. and arriving at 5:30 p.m. This schedule will be operated with a Boeing 737-800 NG with capacity for 16 passengers in executive class and 138 in the main cabin.

The inaugural flight ceremony, held at Tocumen International Airport in Panama City, was attended by the directors and staff of the Airline, as well as various authorities including Gustavo Him, Minister of Tourism of Panama and William Griffith, Director General of Tourism of Barbados and Alfredo Fonseca Mora, Director of Civil Aeronautics.

Copa Airlines currently operates an average of 350 daily flights through the Hub of the Americas, located at Tocumen International Airport in Panama City, currently connecting 80 cities in 32 countries of the continent. At the beginning of 2018, the Airline was recognized for the fifth consecutive year by FlightStats as "The most punctual airline in Latin America", and by the Official Airline Guide of London as "The fourth most punctual airline in the world" and "The most punctual airline in Latin America ".
