A bright yellow vest clings onto my blazer and a group of plane spotters and the airport staff stand out on the runway awaiting Copa Airlines’ arrival from Panama City with one of the most modern aircrafts in the market.

“Get ready,” the airport media relations team members say, as onlookers prepare cameras to snap the moment the blue and white plane lands during a hot Thursday afternoon.

@CopaAirlines new Max9 airplane coming in @FlyTPA @TBBJnewsroom

Sept 2018

The plane was rolling in as if it was a celebrity strutting down the red carpet. The airport conducted a water arch salute, where water cannons spray at the same time, creating an arch the plane passes under. The celebratory arch is done rarely at the airport, as the airport staff said it has to be a major inaugural flight or for a long-term pilot who is retiring for one of the airport’s big carriers.

“It’s the beginning of a new era, introducing the first Boeing (NYSE: BA) 737 MAX9. It’s a symbol of pride for the airline, Panama and the Copa team members,” Fernando Fondevila Leyton, Copa’s regional manager for North America, told Tampa Bay Business Journal during the celebration of the plane landing in Tampa.

Copa Airlines (NYSE: CPA) has been offering service to the Tampa airport since 2013 and recently the airline started increasing its service from Tampa to Panama.

“Tampa is a key market for Copa,” Leyton said. “It’s been a successful destination for Copa Airlines. It allows us to operate the only nonstop service from Tampa International to Panama City, our Hub of the Americas, and from Panama beyond with more than 55 destinations, connecting Central America and the Caribbean with the Tampa community.”

However, the new MAX9, 166-seat plane elevates the airline’s existing fleet with spacious and luxurious seats and technology.

The business class cabin, dubbed the Business Class Dream, has lie-flat seats, 16-inch touch screens, remotes, USB ports and more space for storage.

Copa also introduced a new section for the economy class that has 24 seats that offer more legroom, touch screens and USB ports as well.

Additionally, its engineering is even more superb as it has a new LEAP-18 engine, which makes it 40 percent quieter and one of the most advanced in the world.

This MAX9 represents a big change for the airline, which will be used on the longest routes of Copa’s network of its 80 destinations.

“It actually allows us to reach other corners of the continent and continue to promote Panama as the top destination,” Leyton said.

Copa will add four more MAX9 planes between October and December, eight more in 2019 and an additional nine in 2020. The total number will grow to 71 in the coming years.

He said aircraft is going to also fly to San Francisco in early 2019.
