Air Panama has resumed flights between David, in Chiriquí, and the Juan Santamaría International Airport, in Costa Rica. The flights, announced last week, will be on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
Media publications in Panama shared that the flights will take place in a Fokker turboprop plane for 50 passengers. They will depart from Panama at 11:50 am and then from Costa Rica at 12:40 pm.
The Panamanian company offered the flight in 2015 as part of a campaign called “Panama has it all,” and even connected it to Bocas del Toro as a final destination in the northeast, popular among tourists, but at some point it was suspended.
Air Panama approved the permits needed for the route and is ready to resume the service. A promotional fare of $99 roundtrip will be offered as part of the commercial strategy to attract passengers in the next few weeks.
