The return of scheduled flights by Copa Airlines since Hurricane Irma brought more to St. Maarten than additional seats and wider access to the South and Central American market.
The Panama-based airline’s return as of Saturday means the country again has a better air link for patients who need medical treatment in Colombia and it reconnects one of Princess Juliana International Airport’s (PJIA’s) fractured sub-hub links.
Copa Airlines’ two weekly flights on Mondays and Saturdays between Panama and St. Maarten connect the island with 77 destinations in 31 countries in the Americas. The airline hopes to build back up to its pre-Irma level of four flights weekly to St. Maarten in the coming months.
