Emirates Announces Service to Panama City

Panama City will be Emirates’ first gateway in Central America, providing convenient connections to Latin America, South America and beyond. This new route will be the world’s longest non-stop flight and the only one to offer First Class service.

Emirates announced its plans to launch services to Panama City, beginning 1st February, 2016. The new service will be the longest non-stop flight in the world (17 hours 35 minutes in the Westbound direction) and will be Emirates’ first gateway destination in Central America.

Service to Panama City, Panama’s capital and largest city by population, will commence with a daily flight operated by a Boeing 777-200LR aircraft. Service to Panama City will operate through Tocumen International Airport (PTY).

Panama City is more than just a vibrant metropolis and gateway to tropical destinations. It is also the economic and financial centre of the country with the major industries being international banking, commerce, and tourism. It operates two of the busiest ports in Latin America, including the Colon Free Trade Zone – the world’s second largest free trade zone. Additionally, the ongoing expansion of the Panama Canal has helped contribute to Panama’s economic growth in recent years.

“Panama City will be our first destination gateway in Central America, providing a convenient option for our passengers travelling from or through our global hub in Dubai and onward to destinations throughout Central America, the Caribbean and the northern part of South America,” said His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline & Group. “We’re also pleased to be the only commercial airline to offer a daily, First Class service to travellers on what will be the world’s longest non-stop flight.”

“It is gratifying to see how diplomatic efforts focused on generating development and prosperity for Panama materialise,” said The Honourable Isabel Saint Malo de Alvarado, Vice President of the Republic of Panama.  “New doors to the country will open with a direct connection to the Middle East – a strong and thriving region with great synergies to both Panama and Latin America.”

“This new direct flight between Dubai and Panama City will connect Latin America with the Middle East, Asia and Africa,” explained Eduardo Fonseca Ward, Consul General of the Republic of Panama, in Dubai. “This link will generate a broader global network with countless commercial and cultural opportunities for the two regions. It has been a pleasure to work with the Emirates team, who have shared the vision of Panama and Dubai as hubs of trade, prosperity and hope.”

Service to Panama City to begin on 1st February 2016.
