Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras, a Brazilian airline, and Copa Airlines, the flag carrier of Panama, have announced a codeshare agreement on Thursday. This will connect two of the largest route networks in Latin and South America.

Azul serves more than 100 domestic destinations in Brazil, including 52 destinations not served by any other airline. As part of the agreement, Copa Airlines will add its ‘CM’ IATA code on Azul’s domestic flights. In turn, the Brazilian carrier will place its code on Copa’s flights into and out of its Panama City hub, allowing passengers to take advantage of the Copa Airlines’ network.

Copa Airlines is always looking for partnerships to offer the best travel experience and enhance our route network for our customers. This new partnership with Azul reinforces the company’s presence in Brazil […]. This codeshare agreement also allows us to offer more flight options to major cities in the Brazilian southeastern and northeastern regions to which we currently do not fly […]. Dennis Cary, Commercial and Planning Senior Vice President, Copa Airlines

In addition to the new codeshare partnership, Azul and Copa Airlines announced the launch of their frequent flyer cooperation agreement. Starting in December, members of TudoAzul, Azul’s loyalty programme, and ConnectMiles, the loyalty programme of Copa Airlines, can earn frequent flyer points on flights of both airlines.
