If you're planning to spend winter in the Caribbean, St Maarten to be exact, then you're going to benefit from an added carrier option as Panama's Copa Airline plans to operate four weekly flights to St Maarten. This is according to a report from the St Maarten Ministry of Tourism.

The announcement (July, 2019) of the flights, set to increase in December, came after a meeting at Copa's headquarters in Panama city with St Maarten's tourism minister, Stuart Johnson and Copa's CEO Pedro Heilbron.

According to the report, this was a very important meeting for stakeholders, especially St Maarten, because Copa Airlines is the only Latin American carrier which flies to the Dutch Caribbean island.

Increasing flights to the destination will be very instrumental for the future long-term development of the St Maarten tourism industry, and the increase to four weekly flights will definitely help increase St Maarten's market share in the Latin American market.

About Copa Airlines

Copa Airlines is headquartered in Panama City, Panama with its main hub located at the Tocumen International Airport.

The carrier started international operations in 1966 with flights to San Jose, Costa Rica. During that period it operated three weekly flights to the destination. However, the airline was actually founded in 1947 as the national airline of Panama, which operated flights to three Panamanian cities.

In 1969, the airline introduced flights to Jamaica, Nicaragua and Colombia. The following year Copa started flying to Medellin, Cartagena, San Salvador and Guatemala. Today Copa Airlines flies to more than 70 destinations in the Americas, including to over 17 US cities.
