In 2020, the travel and tourism industry was one of the most severely impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Copa Airlines, one of the most commanding airlines in Latin America, faced this challenging time just like any other carrier. Before the pandemic, the company was operating approximately 300 flights daily to 80 destinations and one year after the beginning of the health crisis, its operation continues to be 70% lower.
The situation compelled the airline to find new ways to reduce costs to protect its cash flow. After an analysis carried out by the airline's Infrastructure and Communications area, the company realized it could save 50% of its communications costs by leveraging their FortiGate NGFW infrastructure to deploy the Fortinet Secure SD-WAN solution, also getting more benefits.
