SEPTEMBER 1st | Panama City Palooza

Panama City Palooza

¡Bienvenido a Panama!

Welcome to the incredible nation of Panama! Known for its beaches and boots, Panama is a country of much natural beauty, but also of gleaming modern cities and world class eats. Panama is perhaps best known for its canal, which enables ships to travel between the Caribbean/Atlantic and the Pacific. The Panama Canal accounts for a whopping 33% of the nation’s GDP.

Like its fellow Central American countries, Panama has lots of beaches. Over 2 million people visit annually. Panama City is one of the largest in Latin America. With a population of 1.3 million, the city is a hub for economic and agricultural activity in the country.


Tocumen International Airport

Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport (PTY/MPTO) is located 10 miles from Panama City’s Distrito Central de Negocios, in the suburb of Las Acacias. PTY is Central America’s largest airport, and is the home base for Copa. Due to its strategic location between North and South America, Copa’s business model is to facilitate connections between the two continents. PTY has one of the highest stopover rate of any airport in the world.

Tocumen Airport was first built during World War Two by the United States Air Force, in 1942. In 1947, the airport was signed over to the Panamanian government. In 1989, when the United States and its allies invaded Panama, the airport was seized by the Americans and turned back into a USAF base. When the invasion ended, the airport was turned back over to the Panamanians.

May I know the source of this? Also, it’s spelled “Colombia,” and the town of David is located in western Panama, close to the border with Costa Rica.

So many good routes mort, I can’t decide. Just surprise me please.

This will probably be my last flight of the summer☹️

Absolutely! This information I pulled from the PTY Wikipedia page. Whenever I use Wikipedia as a source, I make sure to check the footnote to ensure it’s reliable. It appears that I have been mistaken - the footnote for this is nonexistent. I have removed that line from the page (I dabble in Wikipedia editing), as it doesn’t comply with the site’s policy.

I have no idea how I got that. I know that David is in Panama. The spelling probably comes from “Columbia,” in South Carolina. My mistake.

What flight length would you like?

Just crosschecking. While I don’t know when was the first flight out of the airport, I couldn’t confirm what you wrote neither: “The inaugural commercial flight was on May 3rd of that year.”

That was also on the portion of the article that I removed for lacking sources. Thank you.
