Yesterday, Monday 22 at 23:55 local time, the first flight of a Boeing 737 MAX landed at the Santiago de Chile airport after two years. This operation was carried out on a Copa Airlines MAX 9 from Ciudad de Panamá.
The Chilean capital joins the list of several Latin American cities that once again received the MAXs at their airports. In many countries they were already authorized for operations so the companies began to schedule their flights with these aircraft.
According to the information obtained by Aviacionline through Cirium, Copa Airlines plans to resume regular operations between Ciudad de Panamá and Santiago de Chile as of April 1. The company will have between one and two flights per day with the Boeing 737-9, while the rest will be operated in the Boeing 737-800.
The Panamanian company will have between two and three daily flights between the capitals of Panama and Chile, reaching a total of 72 operations per month. Before the pandemic, in a completely different context, Copa had up to six flights per day.
With this schedule of operations, the company will offer a total of 11,268 monthly seats between Ciudad de Panamá and Santiago de Chile and vice versa as of April.
