Copa Airlines B737 Max 8

IMG_0516

With Copa starting operations with their Max 8 on July 5th of this year, I think it would be awesome to have it in the sim, Copa has a lot of amazing routes all around the Americas from their hub in panama city.

Here are some of the routes Copa will use their Max 8s

Asuncion, Bogota, Medellin, Curacao, Cali, Armenia, Cancun, Denver, Boston, Guatemala City, Georgetown, Guadalajara, Chicago, Bridgetown, etc. all of them from their hub in Panama City (PTY)

Love this livery. Saw their MAX 9 at CUR last week, was wondering why they didn’t have the MAX 8 yet, happy to see it coming.

I believe they have used the MAX 8 to IAD and JFK.

They use the -800 and occasionally the MAX 9 for those routes. They don’t have the MAX 8 in fleet yet.

no they didnt, they dont even have any BM38s delivered yet

Oh, I meant the MAX 9 sorry.

ahhh u good bro

Yeah thise are some examples of the routes copa will fly them, there are more in the link tho

Has the Max 8 been painted yet?

Idk tbh but they announced they are starting operations with it in July

I haven’t seen one painted yet. But if they’re programming the schedules for the MAX 8, I guess we can see one painted within the next few months.

Copa Airlines postponed the launching of their 737 MAX 8s to August 15, coinciding with their date of foundation.

The first routes for the MAX 8 will be the following:

  • Asuncion ASU (5x weekly)
  • Lima LIM (8x weekly)
  • San José SJO (3x weekly)
  • Bogotá BOG (1x weekly)
  • Guatemala City GUA (2x weekly)
  • Havana HAV (4x weekly)
  • San Pedro Sula SAP (1x weekly)
  • Rosario ROS (3x weekly)

Deliveries are taking longer than expected, with all the scrutiny and setbacks on the 737 MAX production.
