This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.
Visitors to Panama arrive by cruise ship, by bus from Costa Rica or by air. There is no land transport across the Darien Gap to Colombia. Airlines flying to Panama City include:
- Star Alliance - Continental
- Oneworld - American, Iberia, Mexicana
- Sky Team - Delta, KLM
- Other selected - COPA, TACA, Avianca
TIP Double check tickets to Panama City are to the Panamanian city (airport code PTY) not the one in Florida (airport code PFN).
TIP Fares from southern hubs in USA are relatively low. Look out for sales by COPA - other airlines often match.
