“The London flight is a go”, COPA holding president of the board, Stanley Motta, told a correspondent of The Visitor last week at a Corporate Social Responsability event. The Panamanian businessman was speaking at the Panamanian Association of Business Executives (APEDE).
Motta did not name the British airline that will, according to him, in around a year’s this time begin the route. The airline is currently seeking an Embraer jet, said Motta, to complete the trans-Atlantic flight. Virgin and Brithis Airways are the obvious contenders, but the latter is unlikely as it owns Iberia, the Spanish airline that offers a direct flight to Panama from Madrid.
