Copa Airlines to launch service at Hartsfield-Jackson

Panama-based Copa Airlines plans to start flying to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport next month.

The airline is scheduled to begin operating four flights a week between Atlanta and Panama City, Panama on Dec. 12.

Copa Airlines describes Atlanta as a market that offers “significant leisure and business traffic.” It plans to offer the flights year-round. With its hub in Panama City, the airline can connect passengers “to many unique underserved secondary destinations,” a Copa spokeswoman said in an email.

Copa will fly in and out of Atlanta on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Delta Air Lines also plans to boost its service between Atlanta and Panama, adding a second flight on Saturdays starting Dec. 18. Atlanta-based Delta is also launching flights to Panama City, Panama from Los Angeles, New York and Orlando, increasing its flight capacity to Panama by 80% compared with December 2019.

Delta called Panama “a highly sought destination” with “breathtaking beaches and vibrant culture.”
