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.
