The Panamanian leader promised to grant a license to the airline of Trinidad and Tobago, Caribbean Airlines (CAL), as a gesture of reciprocity for allowing Copa Airlines to make direct flights to the Caribbean island.
With the entry of two competitors focusing on the business of low-cost fares, the airline market in Central America is preparing for a potential price war.
Starting December, Copa Airlines will fly to Valencia in Venezuela, Oranjestad in Aruba and Santa Cruz in Bolivia.
Copa Airlines is venturing into the local market flying a twice daily route between Tocumen and David with rates $100 cheaper than those of Air Panama, which is being threatened by the international airline.
In July, Copa Airlines will increase the frequency of its daily flights between Panama and Cuba.
