Copa Is Coming

July 17, 2013

From the Tribune – click for article

The Tribune is reporting today that Tampa International will be getting Copa Airlines:

Copa Airlines will start flights between Tampa International Airport and Panama in December, giving customers a direct link to Central and South America.

The new route with one of the world’s leading airlines would fulfill Tampa International’s long-standing goal to serve Copa’s hub in Panama City for flights throughout Central and South America.

Tampa airport officials and Copa executives at their Panama City headquarters have remained mum on what could be the biggest development in recent years for local air service, but aviation and tourism sources with knowledge about the deal have confirmed Copa’s plans.

A news conference focusing on international flights is scheduled for 11 a.m. today at the airport.

We will have more in the Roundup.

Well done TIA folks.

    Wonderful. I have flown COPA out of Miami to Igauzau Falls in Argentine. It takes over two days to get there. If I can fly COPA from Tampa, it will certainly shorten the trip.
