Panama based carrier Copa Airlines has resumed service to Guyana following a seven month hiatus. The airline’s Boeing 737 touched down at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport around 2.30 a.m. on Saturday morning commencing what will initially be a once weekly flight bridging Guyana and Panama.
Copa resumed limited scheduled operations following the July 31 decree by the Panamanian government to reopen the Tocumen International Airport for Panamanians and residents to travel to the country; and for intransit passengers who will spend less that six hours between flight.
The airline has slowly been ramping up operations and passengers departing Guyana can now connect on other Copa Airlines flights to Miami, New York, Mexico City and several other Latin American cities.
The Panama bound flight will depart Guyana at 6:23 a.m. and arrive at 9:06 a.m.
