Government sponsored, this proposal looks to improve the city's image and touristic experience, within the goal of restoring the "Casco Antiguo" (historic center) as a touristic spot in Panama.
The tram line would link the recently inaugurated "Cinta Costera" (Coastal Belt) with the "Casco Antiguo", to finally reach Amador Causeway.
"Abandoned properties, and those that have not been restored according to the law, will be expropriated", published Prensa.com. "'This is how it was done in Puerto Rico and Cartagena. We are the only country not taking its historic center seriously', affirmed Salomón Shamah, head of Panama's Tourism Authority".
The Spanish airline will fly four times a week between Panama City and Madrid.
An agreement was signed between Panamanian tourism authorities and the airline. This agreement is a preamble to a wider Cooperation Agreement between the Government and the airline.
From Panama America: “In the meeting with Iberia executives, Panamanian president Ricardo Martinelli explained that his administration intends to increase the number of air links between Panama and Europe, Asia and Africa, to foster tourism and investment”.
