About Copa Airlines

Copa Airlines, or Compania Panamena de Aviacion, was founded in 1944 and has been flying since 1947. It is the national airline of Panama and is based at Tocumen International Airport in Panama City. It also has additional centres for operation located at La Aurora International Airport, El Dorado International Airport, Augusto C. Sandino International Airport and Juan Santamaria International Airport. The airline uses a mixture of Boeing and Embraer aircraft to operate its services.

Using a fleet of over 100 planes, Copa Airlines serves more than 70 different destinations in the Americas and Caribbean. Just some of its many popular destinations include Cancun, Toronto, Rio de Janeiro and New Orleans. It became Star Alliance's first Latin American member in 2012 after leaving SkyTeam. Along with other Star Alliance members, it has codeshare agreements for flights with Aeromexico, Emirates, Cubana De Aviacion, Linea Aerea Amazonas, Gol, TAME, KLM and Condor. It also owns Copa Airlines Colombia.
