Copa Airlines includes one free checked bag in addition to a free carry-on bag plus a personal item for all fares. The 2nd checked bag fee varies by destination.

Seat Selection

Standard advanced seat assignments are included. You may pay a fee to choose a preferred seat with more legroom.

Alternate Fares

A few routes may have similar fares on American, Delta, United, JetBlue, Avianca, or LATAM as all airlines flying to the region are fighting for market share in this emerging market. When comparing other carriers, make sure to double-check for any bag fees since many airlines are starting to charge new checked bag fees for flights to South America. Copa Airlines remains an airline that still includes one free checked bag and standard seat selection for all fares.
