COPA AIRLINES INCREASES SERVICE TO CURAÇAO

 With the increase from four to seven weekly flights between Panama and Curacao, Copa
looks forward to fostering stronger business and commercial ties between these
destinations and the rest of the Americas.
 Offering more flight options through the Hub of the Americas in Panama City than any
other international airline, Copa Airlines is deeply committed to serving its passengers.
Panama, June 12, 2018 – Copa Airlines, a subsidiary of Copa Holdings, S.A. {NYSE:
CPA} and a member of the global Star Alliance network, will operate daily flights
between Curaçao and Panama City as of July 17, 2018, offering its passengers more
flight options, with convenient schedules and greater connectivity with the rest of the
continent.
Copa Airlines CEO Pedro Heilbron said, “We are constantly seeking opportunities to
offer our passengers more flight options. This dedication to service led us to evaluate
every route and examine the possibility of increasing flight frequency. We see potential
in this market as demand has increased over this past year.”
Passengers traveling between Panama and Curaçao will now enjoy more convenient,
flexible schedules starting July 17. Copa Airlines will operate daily flights from Panama
to Curaçao, departing at 9:13 am and arriving at 12:18 pm (local time), and from
Curaçao to Panama, departing at 1:18 pm and arriving at 2:30 pm (local time).
“With these new flights in the Americas and the Caribbean,” Heilbron added,
“passengers who want to visit these important tourist destinations will find that they
have more seats and more dates to choose from. Thanks to the connectivity that we
offer through the Hub of the Americas, there’s no question that this expanded service
will encourage more economic activity, as well as stronger business and trade ties
between Curaçao and the rest of the Americas.”
According to Curaçao’s tourism representative Andre Rojer, “These additional flights
will provide tourists from the continent more chances to experience Curaçao. With our
sublimely beautiful beaches, picturesque scenery, and tropical weather, Curaçao is the
perfect destination for the whole family to relax. Undoubtedly, this is an opportunity to
exalt the virtues of our country brand.”
