Lufthansa Group recently post poned the date of the inaugural nonstop flight connecting the Tocumen International Airport with their hub in Frankfurt, Germany.
Originally announced to begin November 16 of this year, the German airline’s direct-flight service has now been moved to March 2, 2016. The company cites “the need to offer more stability for the new operation,” while it reiterates its “commitment to Panama as the gateway to Central America and the Caribbean.”
The German airline company, Deutsche Lufthansa AG, commonly known as Lufthansa, is the largest airline in Europe, both in terms of overall passengers carried and fleet size when combined with its subsidiaries. It operates service to 18 domestic destinations and 197 international destinations in 78 countries across Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe using a fleet of more than 280 aircraft. Its main operations base, called Lufthansa Aviation Center (LAC), is located at the company’s primary traffic hub at Frankfurt Airport.
Lufthansa plans to offer five weekly nonstop flights for which it will receive $1.2 million over the course of three years from Panama to market the country’s destinations in Europe.
