Copa Airlines, LC Perú and Peruvian undergo a code-share agreement

Copa Airlines airline will operate under the code-sharing system with the national carrier LC Peru and Peruvian airlines starting from June of this year, said José Agüero, general manager of the Panamanian company.An agreement was signed at the beginning of last year in order to boost the traffic of their flight to Chicago and connect Peruvians with more remote regions. In this regard, the executive said that this initiative is in the implementation phase. So far, they have moved a little faster with LC Peru, with those already in the testing phase.

"It is a process of some complexity, with an 'upgrade' in the system of them, so that everything can be interconnected and so travelers can buy their tickets at once," said Aguero, in statements to the newspaper El Comercio . In a second phase, they will work with travel agencies. Copa is determined to generate more traffic towards its Chiclayo-Panama route and connect it with the other destinations that cover the LC Peru and Peruvian nationals in the country, through a single purchase.

For the time being, Copa Airlines will focus on consolidating the routes where it is operating. Agüero said that the possibility of incorporating new routes is not on the radar, but he does consider evaluating a new frequency from Chiclayo to Panama. The changes have already attracted travelers directly to the northern cities. According to Agüero, many of the tourists who visit Peru for the second time travel to the north of the country. At the end of 2018, Copa Airlines aims to transport more than 500,00 passengers.

Copa Airlines makes St Maarten comeback!

Copa Airlines, a carrier based in Panama, is making its return to the island of St Maarten. Copa's comeback will kick off with weekly flights to St Maarten in June, according to Acting Minister of Tourism Cornelius de Weever. “This is a significant development.

Copa had been serving St Maartien since 2010 before suspending operations to the island due to the devastating effects of Hurricane Irma.

Copa Launches Denver - Panama Flights

There’s a new way to fly to the heart of the Caribbean Basin.

Copa Airlines has announced the launch of new service between Denver, Colorado and Panama City.

The new nonstop flights connect Denver to more than 55 destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean through Copa’s Panama hub at Tocumen International Airport.

It’s the latest new service between Denver and the Western Caribbean, following Southwest’s launch of flights to Belize earlier this year.

The flights will be operating on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Copa is operating the service on Boeing 737-800 Next Generation aircraft with capacity for 16 passengers in business and 138 in the main cabin.

“Our new route to Denver demonstrates the Hub of the Americas’ continued leadership position among airline hubs in Latin America,” said Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa Airlines. “Denver is our 13th U.S. destination and will allow passengers to make convenient connections to more than 55 destinations throughout Latin America. Denver is a flourishing mecca of progress in the U.S. and Panama is a nucleus of travel and commerce for Central and South America and the Caribbean. Uniting the two cities through this route will undoubtedly boost tourism and economic development between Colorado, Panama and the rest of the region.”

Peruvian Airlines and LC Peru team up with Copa Airlines

Codeshare agreement to allow Copa passengers to connect with LC Peru and Peruvian

Copa Airlines has signed a codeshare agreement with Peruvian Airlines and LC Peru to offer lower fares and better domestic connections for international flights.

The Panamanian airline offers international flights to Lima and Chiclayo via their hub in Panama City, where it provides connections with major airports in North America and Europe.

Copa expects to bring more customers into their direct flights to Chiclayo with the new agreement, which is the first to focus on secondary cities in Peru. The initiative will allow the airline to offer better domestic connections and expand to other Peruvian cities in the near future.

The airline is doubling down efforts to avoid the fate of their direct flight to Iquitos—which never gained enough traction to become economically viable and was eventually suspended. Codeshare flights under this agreement will be offered by Copa and only available for purchase through their commercial channels.

“Twenty years ago, our services were seen as a luxury for a privileged few. Nowadays, commercial flights are a mass transportation industry that requires an evermore efficient and customized service,” Copa Airlines CEO Pedro Hebron told El Comercio, pointing out the pressure Latin American airlines are experiencing to step up their competitiveness, both in service and airfares.

The international flight market in Peru is growing; according to a report by the General Directorate of Civil Aeronautics (DGAC), the number of international passengers has increased 13.6% between January and July compared to the same period in 2016, for a total of 5,830,185 passengers going in or out of the country.

In the same period, Peruvian Airlines and LC Peru transported 23.9% of all domestic passengers while Copa flew 9.4% of all international passengers.

This alliance could help the three parties increase their slice of the cake in an emerging market dominated by LAN Peru and Taca Peru, which provided their services to 69.4% of domestic and 40.2% of all international passengers over the same period.

Colombian LCC Wingo: Copa becomes first Latin American airline group to test out multi-brand model

The Panama-based airline group Copa Holdings is testing out the multi-brand model with its LCC brand Wingo, which launched operations in late 2016 and is now operating 17 short haul routes. Wingo has already captured a 2% share of seat capacity in both the group’s home markets, Colombia and Panama.

Copa is following a typical multi-brand strategy by using Wingo to take over unprofitable routes that were previously under the full service brand Copa Colombia, as well as launching new point-to-point leisure routes that would not be viable under its normal two-class full service product.

However, Copa has decided not to follow the typical multi-brand strategy of establishing a new airline from scratch; Wingo uses the Copa Colombia operators certificate, providing economies of scale and minimising risk, but potentially limiting the potential benefits.

As the first LCC under a Latin American full service airline group, Wingo is an experiment in many respects. If the initial trial using four single class 737-700s is successful, Copa could use Wingo to expand in Colombia and Panama as well as potential other Latin American markets while other full service airline groups may be compelled to establish their own LCC brands or subsidiaries.

Panama, Copa Airlines, Pullmantur jointly promote cruises from Colón

The Panama Tourism Authority, Copa Airlines and Pullmantur Cruises signed a collaboration agreement to promote Panama as a cruise destination.

The goal is to attract Latin Americans to Panama, boosting tourism and Pullmantur's sailings from Colón, one of the line's three regional homeports.

Under the agreement, Copa Airlines will provide exclusive rates to passengers joining a Pullmantur cruise in Colón who fly from 14 airports in eight Latin American countries: Santa Cruz, Bolivia; Belo Horizonte, Sao Paulo, Porto Alegre and Río de Janeiro, Brazil; Santiago, Chile; Quito and Guayaquil, Ecuador, Guadalajara, Monterrey and Mexico City, Mexico; Asunción, Paraguay; Lima, Peru; and Montevideo, Uruguay.

The rates will be used by wholesalers to create fly-cruise packages, according to Karla Guillén, manager of wholesale sales, Copa Airlines.

The Panama Tourism Authority will work with Pullmantur Cruises on various promotions in the Southern Cone, including exposure on television and in movie theaters in Colombia, Peru and Ecuador with 10- and 20-second spots about seven-night vacation packages to five destinations.

The packages will also be promoted on mobile and fixed billboards and signs in Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Costa Rica, as well as in newspapers and magazines.

'We will have weekly cruise arrivals, which will generate more income and higher hotel occupancy,' Panama Tourism Authority administrator Jennifer Champsaur said.

Agusto Terracina, manager of the cruise terminal Colón 2000, said the marketing collaboration will bring more tourists to Panama, who stay two or three days before or after their cruise, boosting business, especially on weekends when there's less business in hotels and shopping centers.

Pullmantur's Monarch will sail from Colón on 52 departures of its 'Antilles and Southern Caribbean' and 'Legendary Caribbean' routes, and is expected to double the number of passengers carried from there.
