Panama City airport (PTY)

Review this airport


Passengers are reiterated that, to enter Panama, they must present a certificate of PCR swabbing or negative antigen with a maximum of 48 hours in advance. Given the new demands of many countries, which request a negative test before boarding their flight, there is a laboratory on level 100 of the air terminal to allow passengers, who leave the country, to take their covid test before doing your Check-In.

Tocumen International Airport, opened on June 1, 1947, serves Panama City and is the main air terminal in the country. In addition to domestic flights, it operates with international destinations throughout the American Continent, China and the main locations in Europe.
