Copa Holding, shareholder of the Panamanian airline Copa, reported that it provided transportation services to 2.3 million passengers in the first two months of the year.
The figure represents a 19.5% increase compared to the same period last year, when the company transported 1.9 million people. Of this total, 2.2 million were international passengers, while the remainder was from internal operation of the company's subsidiary in Colombia, Copa Airlines Colombia.
On September 20 and 21, the 4th International Tourism Expo 2013 will be held at the Atlapa Convention Center.
A tourist is not just someone who travels to a destination to explore its museums, archaeological sites and recreational parks.
There are also tourists who go to another country seeking, in addition to visit its cultural attractions, to receive a medical service or treatment of high quality, but at a more affordable cost than if they had paid for it in their home country.
