Copa Airlines has announced the signing of a codeshare agreement with AeroMexico, which took effect Aug. 1.

In its initial stage, Copa Airlines will place its designator code on AeroMexico-operated flights beyond Mexico City to 17 destinations: Acapulco, Auguascalientes, Leon/Bajio, Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Culiacan, Cancun, Guadalajara, Hermosillo, Merida, Monterrey, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, Tijuana, Villahermosa and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo.

In addition, AeroMexico will place its designator code on Copa Airlines-operated flights between the Hub of the Americas in Panama City to Mexico City, Cancun and Guadalajara.

Passengers traveling on these flights will be able to move between the carriers with a single reservation and ticket, with luggage checked to their final destination. Travelers will also be able to earn miles for either of the airlines’ frequent flyer programs.

“The agreement enables Copa Airlines to further expand the reach and scope of its Hub of the Americas in Panama City by providing us connectivity to some of Mexico’s most important cities,” said Jorge Garcia, commercial vice president of Copa Airlines. “Additionally, this alliance will further promote commerce, trade and tourism between Mexico and Latin America as passengers will have more options to conveniently connect between Mexico and the region.”

Cop Airlines currently provides service to 39 destinations in 21 countries in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean through its Hub of the Americas.
