Air France has launched a regular flight to Panama City this winter, with three weekly frequencies on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, and is therefore extending its network to Central and South America and the Caribbean.
Flights will operate on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays and are operated by Boeing 777-200 equipped with 309 seats, including 35 in Business, 24 in Pre-mium Economy and 250 in Economy.
The new route is in addition to the daily KLM service from Amsterdam-Schiphol and enables Air France and KLM customers to benefit from an even wider choice of connections at the Copa Airlines hub at Panama City-Tocumen airport, especially to Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala and Nicaragua.
According to Air France, the launch of the Paris-Charles de Gaulle-Panama City route, set up with the support and cooperation of the Government of Panama, confirms the airline’s position as a European leader in that region.
Today, economic growth in Panama is driven by large-scale projects such as the construction of the subway in Panama City in 2014, the extension of the Panama Canal in 2015, as well as the development of tourism in the region. In addition, more than 80 multinational companies have their headquarters based in Panama for their activities in Central and South America and the Caribbean.
