The flight was rescheduled due to technicalities, according to Chary Araujo, Commercial Manager of SBA Panama.
Raúl A. Bernal writes for Prensa.com: “…this airline will open the route Panama-Caracas-Panama with a Boeing 757 with a capacity of 178 passengers. There will be two flights daily and only one on Saturdays.”
The Venezuelan Company announced that it will open the Panama-Caracas-Panama route beginning on July 1.
This is the first foreign airline to enter to compete in the local market this year.
Raul Carrillo reported statements by the airline's executive president, Jorge Alvarez Méndez, for Laestrella.com.pa: "This step is part of three-phase plan: First, strengthening SBA Airlines in its United States operations, second is opening flights to and from Europe and, finally, opening the Panama destination."
The Venezuelan airline has announced it will open a new route between Caracas and Managua with a stopover in Panama.
Hebert García, Venezuelan Minister of Water and Air Transport, said: "Conviasa should be a powerful airline nationally and internationally. We have to fulfill the plan we were left by Commander Hugo Chavez to make it the flagship airline of Venezuela ".
The Venezuelan state airline Conviasa is to start flying directly, starting in December, from Maiquetia airport to Tocumen and Augusto Sandino.
"On December 5 we will be flying from Maiquetia (the airport which serves Caracas) to Panama and on December 7 wewill be flying from Panama to Nicaragua," said Hebert Garcia, Minister of Water and Air Transport in Venezuela.
