PANAMA CITY, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Copa Holdings, S.A. (NYSE: CPA), today announced that J.P. Morgan has been mandated by Copa Airlines to provide Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) guaranteed funding for five 737-800 aircraft scheduled to deliver in 2011.

The Facility, totaling US$178.5 million, includes 12-year financing terms at very competitive rates and will finance all direct Boeing purchases scheduled for delivery to Copa Airlines in 2011.  J.P.

"We are very pleased with J.P. Morgan's support in securing our 2011 aircraft financing needs under very competitive terms.  These five 737-800s will play an important role in our future growth plans", commented Victor Vial, CFO of Copa Holdings.

"As the market leader in providing Ex-Im Bank financing to the airline sector, we are proud to support Copa with their expansion initiatives," said Dani Cotti, global trade executive, J.P. Morgan Treasury Services.
