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.
