Panama City Tocumen International Airport builds to serve a thriving trading and financial community

Panama City has long played an important role in transportation, thanks in no small part to its pivotal geographical situation.

Firstly, situated at the entrance to the extended Panama Canal, it is a hub for international banking and commerce. Secondly it is a hub in the aviation sense, and a very important one for its region. The main airport, Panama City Tocumen International Airport, is not referred to as the ‘Hub of the Americas’ without good reason.

This CAPA report, which identifies the airport as ‘full service’ and with a high proportion of airline alliance traffic, compares Panama City International with a peer group of six other airports around the Caribbean and it identifies any weak points.

It also looks at construction activities, and at what opportunities might arise for a shift from public to private ownership and/or management.
