The ties between Panama and Asia continue to strengthen, 'we are getting closer to attracting a new route, we have had several meetings with airlines from Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore', said Ernesto Orillac, General Consultant of the Tourism Authority of Panama (ATP).
"What we are trying to accomplish by next year or sooner, is that we can have direct flights from Asia”, said the consultant.
Orillac highlighted that there are several other countries from that continent that have contacted us in order to achieve connectivity with our country, ‘they see Panama as a Hub for the Latin American region’.
