Copa Holdings launched a new low-cost carrier based in Colombia, called Wingo. It will fly to 16 cities in 10 countries, using a “point-to-point” (rather than hub) system. Flights begin Dec. 1, and tickets are already on sale at Wingo’s website and call center.
Copa says Wingo is “designed for passengers who prefer a simple, no-frills and reliable travel option.”
Copa Holdings’ full-service Copa Airlines will continue to operate as it has been, with its hub at the company’s Panama City “Hub of the Americas.” Although Wingo operates under Copa Airlines’ Colombian unit, it is completely autonomous from that airline.
In Colombia, Wingo’s network includes Barranquilla, San Andres, Bogota, Cali and Cartagena. In the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean, its destinations include Aruba, Panama Pacifico, San Jose, Caracas, Cancun, Havana, Mexico City, Quito and Guatemala.
