Copa Introduces Boeing 737-700 with Winglets to the Americas

Copa Airlines of Panama has taken delivery of its first Boeing Next-Generation 737-700 with winglets, becoming the first carrier in all of the Americas to operate the -700 model with advanced winglet technology. Shown here, the airplane takes off from Boeing Field on July 5, 2002, on its delivery flight. The distinctive winglets reduce drag and provide greater fuel efficiency, increasing range capability by up to 115 nautical miles. Copa already operates eight Boeing 737-700s and will take delivery of three more with winglets by year-end.
