Panama: New International Airport Proposed

The new $44 million terminal would be located in Río Hato, taking advantage of the runway used by the U.S. Army until 1999.

Friday, July 31, 2009

This was proposed by the ex-manager of the Air Transport Authority (AAC), Zósimo Guardia, during a meeting with the Panamanian Association of Business Executives.

"He said that by extending the length of the runway, Boeing 737 could land, as well as charter flights from Canada, which stopped landing in Panama several years ago", published newspaper La Prensa.
