The airline will operate the 4,059-kilometre connection using its fleet of 737-800s, with no other airline currently connecting the two cities. Along with Salta, Copa Airlines inaugurated services to Puerto Vallarta (PVR) in Mexico on 16 December.

Puerto Vallarta becomes the airline’s fifth destination in Mexico to be served non-stop from Panama City according to OAG schedules. With these launches, it brings to 80 the number of routes that the airline operates from Panama City.
