Copa to launch non-stop Boston- Panama service
Logan International Airport will get its first nonstop service to Latin America when Copa Airlines starts flying between Boston and Panama City July 10. The 5 and a half hour flight will depart from Boston just before 10 a.m. each day on a 124-seat Boeing 737.
Boston is the largest US market without a nonstop flight to Latin America. In 2011, more than 400,000 passengers flew between Boston and the more than 50 cities in Central and South America that Copa serves out of its hub in Panama City.
“Our new partnership with Copa Airlines grows the global reach of Boston and Logan by connecting New England with Latin America,’’ said Thomas Glynn, chief executive of the Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs Logan.
