Panama-based Copa Airlines is expanding its service to the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao.
Beginning in July 2018, Copa will be increasing its service to daily flights between Panama and Curaçao.
The nonstop flights will be operated daily with a capacity of 96 seats.
It’s a boost for Curaçao as it looks to grow the Latin American market, with Copa’s base in Panama serving as a hub for connections from a host of South American destinations.
“This will definitely help us grow our tourist arrivals in 2018,” the Curaçao Hotel and Tourism Association said in a statement.
