"The MAX 9 means a new era in the more than 70 years of Copa Airlines. With the arrival of this aircraft we incorporate the latest Boeing technology, which will be part of one of the most modern and young fleets in the industry. In addition, the MAX 9 is a symbol of development and growth that fills us with pride and motivates us to continue innovating, to be more efficient in our operations every day and to leave the name of Panama on the whole continent, "said Pedro Heilbron , CEO of Copa Airlines.
"The introduction of this new aircraft to the Panama fleet represents the high level of technology and complexity that our country's aviation has. This in turn requires the Civil Aviation Authority to maintain high technological standards in the systems, which allow these new aircraft to navigate efficiently and safely Panamanian airspace, "said Alfredo Fonseca Mora, general director of the Civil Aviation Authority (AAC).
"For decades, Copa Airlines has had great success with the Boeing 737NG, and the future looks even better. In this new era, Copa will continue to lead the industry by taking advantage of the vanguard benefits offered by the 737 MAX, "said Ricardo Cavero, vice president of Boeing commercial aircraft sales for Latin America and the Caribbean.

In addition, the modern engines of the MAX 9 reduce the sound by 40%, making the experience of the trip quieter and more pleasant.
As an outstanding element in this renewed configuration, the airline presented the new Executive Class Dreams, with 16 reclining seats type bed. Each of the seats has a 16-inch touch screen with remote control, power and USB connectors, and spaces to store personal items.
Copa Airlines also introduced the new section called Economy Extra, consisting of 24 seats that offer travelers more legroom, 10-inch touch screens, individual USB input and two alternating current (AC) outputs in each row of three seating. In addition, these passengers will have priority when boarding their flight.
