Copa Airlines resumed its operations in Uruguay
The air route between Panama City and Montevideo was resumed after five months of suspension
The airline has already operated on the 17th and during September it has scheduled flights for the 23rd and 24th, while in October it will have three weekly frequencies, connecting Uruguay with 22 cities in America through the Panama airport.
It is worth remembering that the transit at the Tocumen International Airport cannot exceed 6 hours.
Pedro Heilbron, executive president of Copa said in a statement: "We hope that the restart of flights can help thousands of passengers who wish to return to their homes, reconnect with their families, attend to health issues, important meetings or family or professional commitments" .
The airline also reported that it strengthened its sanitary and disinfection protocols on flights, to prevent the spread and contagion of COVID-19. The use of face masks will be mandatory throughout the flight.
The restart of these flights is possible thanks to the decree of the government of Panama, of July 31, which authorized the transit of passengers.
