Copa said that Wingo would be led by Catalina Bretón, a former JetBlue and Avianca executive, and that Eduardo Lombana, the CEO of Copa Colombia, would be in charge of the airline's administration, finance and operations.[1] Copa said Wingo would use four Boeing 737-700s previously used by Copa, would fly under Copa Colombia’s call sign and codes, and would mostly take over Copa Colombia's routes, adding flights from Bogota and Medellin to Panama Pacifico airport.[1] Copa said that Wingo would offer one class of seats and would charge for baggage, food and beverages, seat assignments, and priority boarding.[1]

Wingo commenced operations on 1 December 2016 with a flight from Bogotá to Cancún.[2]
