Copa Airlines has confirmed an order for 22 Next-Generation Boeing 737-800s. The order was previously attributed to an unidentified customer on Boeing's orders and deliveries website.

"These 22 firm aircraft plus 10 options, which will be delivered between 2015 and 2018, are an integral part of our medium term growth plan," said Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa Airlines. "This is the largest aircraft order in Copa's history, which is a reflection not only of our confidence in the future of Latin America and Panama, but also of our successful business model, which has made our Hub of the America's the best connecting point for intra-Latin America travel."

The 22 firm airplanes are valued at approximately $1.7 billion at list prices and nearly double Copa's existing Next-Generation 737 fleet. 

The order is the largest new aircraft order in Copa Airlines' history and is part of the airlines' plan to continue to grow its fleet to meet market demands for new-generation, more fuel-efficient airplanes.

The new airplanes will be outfitted with the 737 Boeing Sky Interior featuring new modern sculpted sidewalls and window reveals.

Operating out of Panama City, Copa provides service to 46 destinations in 24 countries.
