Cancun, Q.R. — Copa Airlines has reported that after five months of not operating regularly due to travel restrictions imposed by governments due to the COVID-19 crisis, it will reconnect the city of Cancun with five destinations through the Tocumen International Airport in Panama.
This air operation takes place within the framework of Decree No. 300 of July 31, 2020, issued by the Government of Panama, which authorized the transit of passengers through that country. The airline says they will initially operate three weekly flights that will connect through the Tocumen International Airport in Panama, starting on September 4.
Copa Airlines will begin offering flights to Cancun from Republica Panama, Santiago, Chile, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Buenos Aires, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay.
“We hope that the restart of flights can help thousands of passengers who wish to return to their homes reunite with their families, attend to health issues, important meetings, or family or professional commitments,” said Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa Airlines.
“We continue to work with the governments of the region to expand the number of destinations and thus serve as many people as possible,” he added.
People wishing to travel on the flights available in September will be able to find out the itineraries and make their reservation by contacting the Airline Reservation Center or through their travel agent. Passengers who have a valid ticket with Copa Airlines purchased before August 31, 2020 will be able to make date changes without fees.
For tickets purchased after September 1, 2020, fees may apply. The airline says all passengers must comply with the requirements established by the Airline and the health and immigration authorities of the destination country.
