It is easier to drive to Albrook Airport than Tocumen. It is less crowded with shorter lines. My flight was one hour with beautiful views of Panamá and the Caribbean Sea. It was a 12 passenger plane which is great because when everybody is there you can take off early. Which is what happened both times. Next time we will...

Air Panama flight to Chitre leaves from Albrook Airport not Tocumen but not on drop down option. Plane is 12 seater, Cisna Caravan, bench seating. We fly it often and if you have more than 22 pounds you must pay overweight. Car drive is 4 hours and flight is 30 minutes. Always on time, sometimes full but this flight was...

On 30 Dec 2018 we were scheduled to travel at 1:45pm from Bocas del Toro Airport to Panamá City Albrook Airport. Things to know: -Albrook Airport is not the same as Tocumen International Airport -AirPanama flights are usually around 112-145US$ one way, be sure to see if there is a Return flight, the website will show all flights also the...

Only flight service that serves BOC, that badly needs to change. If you fly with them schedule 24-36hr extra time as they continually delay, overbook, cancel flights, bumping passengers without notification and charge fees for you to reschedule due to there changes. Living in BOC we are forced to deal with this airline or fly out of Costa Rica. Honestly,...

The flight was not bad, Flew one way- $114.000 However the security at the Airport left something to be desired. They took my lighter- no big deal but come on this is bull corn. Even in the other places that I have visited never took my lighter. Glad I always bring the stick matches. Since I did not want to...

This airline, the airport and the staff are all a huge disappointment. From check-in (unfriendly, not even a ‚buenas‘) to security control - its a farce. While we had to put literally all travel and vacation relevant stuff such as ALL liquids, shaver, snorkling mask and snorkel into the checked luggage, we were on top charge for excess luggage. Only...

So I flew with Air Panama on economy and this was easily the worst airline I have ever flown with. The staff at the check in counter didn’t speak even a little English. They almost didn’t allow me to board because I didn’t have outward ticket. They should have given me options like booking a flight rather than saying that...

If you want to go back in time, like to the 70s fly air panama. Very old planes. They cancelled both of our flights by email (great but what about our hotels and other flights) and rescheduled to later flights which damaged our entire flight plus we had to pay penalty for a completely new flight out of panama. So...
