Copa Airlines and the Flight Safety Foundation have partnered to enhance the safety of aviation in Panama.

They will work together on enhancing domestic operators' safety management system (SMS) with an initial focus on reporting, along with the Panamanian Civil Aeronautics Authority and Commercial Aviator's Union of Panama.

"The most tangible benefit of SMS is obtained by integration of the operator, regulator and service provider's safety systems," says Jose Eduardo Rodriguez, director of quality and safety at Copa.
