- Copa Airlines, consistently one of the world’s most profitable airlines by operating margin, has added Montreal (YUL) to its growing North American network. On 3 June it began four times weekly flights on the 4,070-kilometre route from Panama City (PTY). The route, not served by any other carrier, will be flown by the airline’s 737-800s. This is the airline’s second route to Canada, as it already serves Toronto with four weekly flights. See how Montreal Airport’s fire truck water arch compares to others from around the world.
