Last Monday Copa Airlines’ first flight from Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport arrived in Aruba, as announced earlier this year. Aruba and Panama are once again connected directly.
Local industry experts and partners are happy with this new flight, as it tends to diversify the flow of visitors to Aruba. Additionally it opens opportunities to Latin travelers who don’t want a stop-over in the United States due to stringent, and at times long, security measures.
Copa Airlines departs 4 times a week from Panama City to Aruba using the modern 94-seat aircraft Embraer 190 in a two class configuration, 1o business and 84 coach. The flight to Aruba departs Panama on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 12:02 p.m., arriving in Aruba at 2:54 p.m. The return flight will depart Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 4:50 p.m., arriving in Panama at 5:36 p.m. All times are local.
