Panama Newest Destination for Nonstop Service | Business
Nonstop flight service between Las Vegas and Panama will begin in late June via Cope Airlines.
On June 27, Las Vegas will become Copa Airlines’ seventh destination in the U.S.
The approximately six-and-a-half-hour flight will depart McCarran International Airport’s new Terminal 3 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 5:37 a.m., arriving at Copa’s Hub of the Americas in Tocumen International Airport in Panama City at 2:36 p.m. The return flight will depart Panama on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 9:54 a.m., arriving in Las Vegas at 2:30 p.m.
“Increasing our accessibility from new and emerging markets will introduce Las Vegas to millions of potential new visitors and help us achieve our goal of 30 percent international visitation over the next decade,” said Cathy Tull, senior vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
Copa will operate a Boeing 737-700 Next-Generation aircraft on the flight, with seating for 12 passengers in Business Class and 112 in the main cabin.
The airline also will begin service in June between Panama and three other destinations: Willemstad, Curacao; Recife, Brazil; and Liberia, Costa Rica, bringing Copa’s total number of destinations served to 63.
