Copa Airlines Resumes Denver Flights

Home

Nonstop service to Panama City will operate four days per week

Picture of Copa Airlines jet.DENVER – Nov. 15, 2021 – Denver International Airport (DEN) celebrated the return of Copa Airlines’ nonstop service to Panama City, Panama (PTY) on Monday. Flights are scheduled to operate on Boeing 737-800 aircraft four times per week.

“Copa’s return contributes significantly to the continued rebuilding of Denver’s global air service network,” said DEN CEO Phil Washington. “Service by Copa benefits local and connecting passengers and also supports the return of all components of travel – business, leisure and visiting friends and relatives.”

Copa inaugurated service at Denver in December 2017 and, like most foreign-flag carriers at DEN, ceased operations in March 2020. Copa previously reinstated DEN-PTY flights in December 2020 but found demand conditions to be unfavorable due to continued travel restrictions and border closures; flights were resuspended in February 2021. Copa has determined now is the right time to restart Denver service once again, ahead of the busy winter season which typically sees strong inbound travel from Copa’s vast network across Central and
South America.

“We are very excited to resume nonstop flights to and from Denver International Airport and offer passengers the opportunity to connect to more than 50 destinations in Latin America once again,” said Christophe Didier, Vice President of Sales of Copa Airlines. “These flights will also allow Copa Airlines to bring back the opportunity for passengers to not only conduct business but also for those who wish to visit such a great destination such as Denver, not only during the winter season but also throughout the year.”

Copa joins Star Alliance partners United, Air Canada and Lufthansa who have previously resumed service to DEN. In 2019, travelers between Denver and Panama City totaled more than 15,000 annually. Demand to the larger regions of Central and South America reached nearly 325,000 annual passengers.
