In Panama, it is expected that with the recent arrival of Air Europa, and the soon to come the low-cost airline, Wingo, scheduled for the first quarter of 2020, will dynamize the country’s tourist activity.

Panama is losing ground in tourism due to lack of investment

On June 3, Air Europa began operating the the capitals of Spain and Panama, with four flights weekly: Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The flights are operated with the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner , with capacity for 318 passengers (22 in Business Class).

Carlos Conde, Air Europa’s commercial manager for Panama and Central America, said that “… connectivity through the Hub of the Americas and the commitment to promote Panama as a tourist destination and put it on the European map of options, were the fundamental reasons to fly to the country.”

Wingo’s manager of Communications of the airline, Juan Sebastian Molano, explained to Elcapitalfinanciero.com that “… The New Airline is awaiting certification from the Civil Aviation Authority (ACC) to announce routes and frequencies. This process should have been completed last week, but it didn’t happen.”

According to reports, Panama last year had 2.48 million tourists arrivals, US$4.6 billion, up 3.3% over the previous year, 2017.
