AeroRepublica boosts Panama service

AeroRepublica
Airlines has announced it
will begin direct daily service from Bogota to Panama on August 3, 2006.“With this flight and two additional code-share flights with Copa
Airlines, we will jointly offer the best schedules and most frequencies
between both cities,” commented Roberto Junguito, President of
AeroRepublica.

“With daily service between Bogota and Panama, AeroRepublica expects to
cover the growing need of business and leisure travelers, which has
increased by approximately 20% in the last three years due to favorable
business conditions between both countries.”
  The alliance between AeroRepublica and Copa Airlines will enable more
intra-regional international connectivity for Colombian passengers, who
will be able to benefit from code-share agreements between both airlines
and connect through Panama with the most important business centers in
Central America and the Caribbean.
  “As we envisioned, Copa Airlines’ Hub of the America’s in Panama is
becoming AeroRepublica’s connecting center for passengers who travel in the
Region. AeroRepublica’s passengers will gain more access to one of the most
complete intra-Latin America networks,” added Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa
Holdings.
