Panama’s Copa Airlines, Boeing celebrate $6.6 billion U.S. 737 MAX deal





PANAMA CITY, PANAMA, April 10, 2015 – Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela Rodriguez and U.S. President Barack Obama witnessed a historic agreement in which Copa Airlines (NYSE:CPA) and Boeing (NYSE: BA) announced an order for 61 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 airplanes. The total value of the deal is $6.6 billion U.S. at published list prices, making it the largest commercial transaction between a Panamanian and a US-based company ever.

The signing ceremony took place in Panama City as leaders from throughout the Western Hemisphere gathered for the seventh Summit of the Americas.

Presidents Varela and Obama were on hand as Copa Chairman Stanley Motta, Copa CEO Pedro Heilbron, Boeing Chairman and CEO Jim McNerney and GE Aviation President and CEO David Joyce signed documents recognizing the agreement. The airplanes were previously listed as unidentified on Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries website.

“Copa is proud to sign this landmark order in the presence of our countries’ two presidents,” said Heilbron. “The Next-Generation 737 is the backbone for our fleet today, and our order for the 737 MAX shows our continued commitment for the future to bring people together across all of the Americas using the most modern and efficient airplanes in the sky, as well as our Hub of the Americas in Panama City.”

Motta noted that “with the 737 MAX our customers will enjoy all the benefits of the best technology available in the market. This order is an important step in strengthening Copa’s leadership in the region as we enhance our world-class product and expand our network. Similarly, we are very excited about bringing new opportunities for Panama’s economic growth in the process.”

Copa Airlines will use the airplanes to replace existing aircraft and support the carrier’s plans for strategic growth. Copa will be the first airline in the region to operate the 737 MAX 9 on deep South American routes. The 737 MAX 9’s range and passenger comfort are ideally suited to Copa’s long-haul route network.

“It is an honor to be joined by Presidents Varela and Obama on this great day. All of us at Boeing are proud to partner with Copa as it works to remain one of the most progressive airlines in the world,” said McNerney. “Copa has a history of leading the way for Latin America’s aviation industry, and this order shows their dedication to continuous improvement in performance, customer satisfaction and efficiency.”

The 737 MAX builds on the strengths of today's Next-Generation 737 by incorporating the latest-technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets and other improvements to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market. Airlines operating the 737 MAX will see a 14 percent fuel-use improvement over today's most fuel-efficient single-aisle airplanes – and 20 percent better than the original Next-Generation 737s when they entered service. The 737 MAX 8 will have an 8 percent operating cost per seat advantage over the A320neo.

The 737 MAX also features the new Boeing Sky Interior, which Copa helped launch in Latin America on its Next-Generation 737 fleet. The sleek interior boasts modern lines, a spacious cabin with more headroom and LED lighting that offers vibrant color options.

In all, there are 2,715 737 MAX orders from 57 customers around the world.

Copa Airlines offers passengers fast and convenient connections to 73 destinations in 30 countries in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean through its Hub of the Americas in Panama City, the most internationally connected airline hub in the region.

For the last two consecutive years, FlightStats has recognized Copa as “Best Airline in Latin America” for its on-time performance and quality of service.

Panama's Copa Airlines, the most profitable airline in the World





(Reuters) - Panama's Copa Airlines and U.S. low-cost carriers Spirit and Allegiant are the three most profitable carriers in the world by operating margin, respectively, according to a ranking of 75 companies published Monday by Airline Weekly.

Budget carriers claimed six of the top 15 spots, which suggests that their no-frills strategy is paying off as travelers hunt for the lowest fares. U.S. legacy carriers all ranked in the top half, while a number of airlines in Asia had negative income and the poorest results.

Copa kept about $0.22 of every dollar of revenue for the year ending June 2014, according to the ranking. Spirit kept about $0.18 while Allegiant kept about $0.16 - both more than triple United Airline's margin of about $0.05, which stuck the carrier in 34th place.

Delta ranked 11th, Southwest came in at 14thand American - the world's largest airline by passenger traffic - ranked 15th.

To be sure, the legacy carriers trumped their low-cost rivals in actual income earned. Delta's operating income last quarter was about $1.6 billion whereas Spirit's was almost 15 times less, at about $105 million.

The results underscore how U.S. airlines have shrunk their capacity to match consumer demand, following years of empty seats and bankruptcies, according to Airline Weekly's Managing Partner Seth Kaplan.

This in part explains why JetBlue, which has come under criticism for not charging passengers for their first checked bag - a money-making tactic widely adopted by its peers - still ranked 19th with an operating margin of $0.08.

"Everyone would prefer flying JetBlue to Spirit" because of its free snacks and wifi, Kaplan said. However, they instead choose Spirit's lower fares.

Spirit also beefed up its margin by outfitting its Airbus A320 planes with 178 seats while JetBlue's only have 150 - which helps the budget carrier distribute its costs across more passengers, Kaplan said. He added that JetBlue would have ranked even lower had the metrics considered airlines' debt.

So which carriers came in dead last?

Embattled Malaysia Airlines, which lost two of its planes and their passengers in tragedies this year, ranked 71st with a negative operating margin of $0.08.

Slightly worse were Tigerair and Jet Airways, followed by two sharp drops: SpiceJet at negative $0.16, and Pakistan International at negative $0.27 (for the year ending December 2013).

While the market for travel in Southeast Asia is growing, it has become over-saturated with airlines trying to take a piece of the action, Kaplan said.

SFO Welcomes Copa Airlines

Copa Airlines officials said the airline plans to launch service at SFO on September 17, 2015, with flights operating seven days per week to the airline’s Hub of the Americas at Tocumen International Airport in Panama City. Copa offers connecting flights to more than 55 cities across Latin America through the airport, the largest and busiest in Central America.

Copa flight 209 will depart San Francisco daily at 11:19 p.m., arriving at Copa’s Hub of the Americas at Tocumen International Airport in Panama at 8:32 a.m. the following day. The return flight 208, will depart Panama at 9:41 a.m., arriving in San Francisco at 2:54 p.m. Copa will operate a Boeing 737-800 Next Generation aircraft on the approximately 6-hour, 45-minute flight, with premium configuration and seating capacity for 16 passengers in Business Class and 138 in the main cabin.

I hope that will be the start of reviving nonstop operations between San Francisco and South America, especially that Copa Airlines provides extensive connections to South America through its base at Tocumen International. I mean, it will give extensive connections on both SFO and PTY ends (SFO for Europe, Asia, and Oceania; PTY for the Caribbean and South America), but I hope through competition, Copa will find ways to make this future flight sustainable.

Highly doubt that anyone from Panama would use the SFO flight to connect to flights to Europe since Panama City is already served by KLM, TAP, Lufthansa, Iberia, and Air France. Not to mention that SFO is way out of the way for making a connecting flight from say PTY to anywhere in Europe compared with say MIA or JFK. SFO however is a great connecting point for flights to Asia so I think Copa's new flight to SFO would benefit from United's codeshare partnership in regards to connecting Asia-Latin America traffic.

I am definitely looking forward to the day that Copa Airlines will fly to San Francisco... the main problem I'll have: how to catch that aircraft, especially that it will arrive and dock at Terminal G (on the northern side of the airport) instead of Terminal A (on the southern side where I take most of my pictures). The challenge of me taking pictures from an AirTrain station has been the limited scope of view from the station to the runways, especially that there are communication towers that obstruct my view... perhaps I should wait for that aircraft to slow down and take good shots of it.

And by the way, I hope United Airlines will codeshare on the new flight as well; conversely, I hope Copa will codeshare on UA's domestic and long-haul services out of San Francisco too to expand the Panamanian carrier's reach.

I am pretty sure United will offer code sharing on the SFO-PTY route since the two airlines have a very close relationship with each other that goes way back before the United/Continental merger (Continental used to have a strong stake in Copa). Practically all of United's hubs now have flights to Panama City to take advantage of any code sharing opportunities that exist.

Perhaps another place Copa could consider flying to would be Suriname (Paramaribo)... it already has a lot of aircraft (B737s) to fly to that unique place. And by the way, it will allow another route for travelers flying beyond Panama too, especially that its main destinations include Miami and Amsterdam. Other potential destinations (in the US) may include:

- Phoenix
- Nashville
- Minneapolis
- Detroit
- Raleigh (NC)
- San Diego

Only looking at the number of airlines it does look like Suriname is under served. But then again, it's a very small market as it's a country with a small population and no tourist infrastructure. From the connections from Parimaribo you can also see the link with the Netherlands and therefor also with the (former) Dutch Antilles like Curaçao and Aruba. That makes other connections very difficult.
