Air France launched its new route between Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris and Tocumen International Airport in Panama City on November 25. After years of negotiation this new route is a reality and will benefit tourism and Panama’s business connectivity from Europe.
Panama received this year 111,090 European tourists, of which 9,618 were French. Air France will operate a 777-200 plane with capacity of 309 passengers who will stay in Panama or connect with other destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The flight will leave from Panama City at 10:00 p.m. landing in Paris the next day at 2:10 p.m. The route will start with 3 flights per week on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday.
Air France’s partner KLM operates a daily flight from Panama City to Amsterdam, Holland. Condor and Iberia are other airlines that flight to Europe.
