Panama’s Copa Airlines Just Launched a New Route From Austin
Panama’s Copa Airlines has launched a new nonstop route between Austin, Tex. and Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport.
The new route is yet another addition for Austin, which has quietly become a growing hub for travel to the wider Caribbean Basin since the onset of the pandemic.
The new flight is operating four times each week between Austin and Panama City, with service on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
The flight takes about five hours or so.
Copa now flies between Panama and 15 different cities in the United States.
“We continue to expand our presence in the United States, with the inauguration of operations in the city of Austin we further strengthen the connectivity of the continent, through the Hub of the Americas, located in Panama City,” said Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa Airlines.
More and more airlines have been launching flights from Austin to the region, including routes to destinations like Cancun, Montego Bay, Jamaica and San Juan, Puerto Rico, among others.
