Copa Airlines to fly daily nonstop from Tampa to Panama next summer

TAMPA — Panama's Copa Airlines, which four years ago became the first airline to offer service between Panama and Tampa Bay, said it is increasing its nonstop service between Tampa International Airport and Panama City to daily flights starting in July 2018. Expanded Copa service will grow from four days a week to daily flights, providing "a better and more frequent connection to Central and South America," the airline stated.

The new Copa flight, CM 394, departs Tampa daily at 2:05 p.m., arriving at Tocumen International Airport in Panama at 5:34 p.m.
