Good afternoon gentlemen,

As rumoured for some months, Panama's Copa Airlines has announced next August it will start flying PTY-MVD, on a 5x weekly basis. According to Uruguayan radio El Espectador, the route will be upgraded to 7x weekly in December.

Flights will be operated with Boeing 737-700 aircraft, and are already bookeable through Amadeus:

Copa Airlines
CM 783
Tocumen Int'l (PTY), Panamá Ciudad, Panamá 11:25
Carrasco (MVD), Montevideo, Uruguay 20:35
Sin escalas
73G
7h10min
Diariamente excepto Lunes Jueves

Copa Airlines
CM 782
Carrasco (MVD), Montevideo, Uruguay 12:40
Tocumen Int'l (PTY), Panamá Ciudad, Panamá 18:05
Sin escalas
73G
7h25min
Diariamente excepto Martes Viernes

What is great about this is CM's move to increase MVD-PTY to 7x daily. Both AA and IB are realizing favorable yields on their MVD-MIA and MVD-MAD nonstops, respectively, and are considering upgrading their service to 7x daily as well.

Daily nonstop flights to MIA, PTY and MAD is rather impressive.

Does anyone have a clue when construction is expected to start on the new MVD terminal designed by famed architect, Rafael Vinoly?

Have the road blocks on the Fray Bentos bridge from Entre Rios affected air travel from AEP/EZE to MVD? Are more travelers flying to MVD rather than driving as a result?

7:25h!!!!

And I thought São Paulo - Panama City was a long flight! I wonder how many pax can Copa ferry on this journey. Does anyone recall any longer scheduled flight w/ 737? I think of Westjet on the Mexico routes but I'm not sure.

Take care!

Well, it's only about 70 miles further than EZE according to the Great Circle Mapper. I'm impressed CM is opening the route -- wouldn't have thought MVD could support it. Are they flying 2x daily PTY-EZE now?

CM PTY-MVD is going to be the longest B737 (mixed configuration) scheduled flight. For better performance, it's possible CM may only take 110+ pax on the northbound flight.


I don't work for COPA Airlines!

It's already on Reservations Systems.

From 04 Dec, PTY-MVD-PTY goes daily.
