Copa Airlines

Full Service Carrier
International and Domestic
In service


Founded in 1947 by a group of Panamanian businessmen in partnership with Pan American World Airways, Copa Airlines is a full-service carrier that provides services to destinations throughout North America, South America and the Caribbean from its hub at Panama City Tocumen International Airport. After a series of separate ownership changes and alliance agreements Continental Airlines acquired a 49% stake in Copa in 1998. By May-2008, Continental had sold out of its holding. Though, following Continental’s merger with United Airlines, Copa continues to cooperate extensively with the carrier via codesharing agreements. In 2005, AeroRepublica (now Copa Airlines Columbia), a domestic and regional airline operating in Columbia, was acquired by group company, Copa Holdings to bolster the group's presence in that market segment. Copa Holdings SA is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker (CPA). Copa operates a fleet of Boeing 737NG and Embraer E190 aircraft. The carrier became a member of the Star Alliance in Apr-2012.
