Flights to the San Blas Archipelago with Air Panama
Air Panama is the only carrier flying to the beautiful, untouched islands in the San Blas. The airline offer daily flights to the Guna Yala region on the airfields of Achutupo (ACU), Corazon de Jesus (CZJ), El Porvenir (PVE), Malatupo (MPP), Playón Chico (PYC) and Puerto Obaldía (PUE). Most of these flights take place on very small, domestic aircraft that can only accommodate for about 20 passengers. Make sure you book well in advance and bear in mind that dates may be sporadic for less popular routes. Flights take no more than a couple of hours to reach the picturesque paradise of the San Blas.
About the San Blas
The San Blas archipelago of Panama comprises of 365 islands and cays, of which only 49 are inhabited. They stretch all the way down from the north coast of the Isthmus of Panama all the way to the east of the Panama Canal. The San Blas is an autonomous region primarily inhabited by the Guna, an indigenous people who live across Panama and Colombia. One of their main exports is coconuts, which until recently was considered the San Blas' major forms of currency.
About Air Panama
Air Panama is the second largest air carrier in Panama and is the regional airline of the country.
Air Panama is based at Albrook Marcos A. Gelabert International Airport in Panama and provides charter and scheduled passenger flights to over 31 destinations. The airline flies to many destinations including: Panama City, David, San Jose, Changuinola, Bocas del Toro, Pedasi, Playon Chico, Isla Contadora, El Porvenir, Corazon de Jesus, Achutupo, Isla Del Rey, Sambu, Bahia Pinas, Jaque, Rio Sidra, Mulatupo, Puerto Obaldia, Garachine, Isla Secas, Isla Coiba, Santiago de Veraguas, Aguadulce, Chitre, Carti, Isla San Jose, La Palma, Punta Patino, El Real, Colon, Rio Hato, Armenia and Medellin.
The airline was founded in 1980 as Parsa and after several company moves, by 1999 the airline had moved its headquarters to Albrook - Marcos A. Gelabert International Airport and by 2005, the name Air Panama was placed.
In January 1999, the airline moved its headquarters to the new Albrook - Marcos A. Gelabert International Airport, when the old airport located at Paitilla was shut down after 70 years of operation.
In 2005, the Air Panama trademark rights were acquired. The name had been unused since the demise of Air Panamá Internacional in January 1990, and PARSA formally adopted the new name that year.
Air Panama's fleet consists of Britten-Norman Islander, Cessna 208 Caravan, Cessna 182, Fokker 50, Fokker 100 and Piper PA-34 Seneca. In November 2017, Air Panama announced it had acquired an Airbus A330-200 to fly to Europe. Air Panama will incorporate a wide-body aircraft to fly to the European Continent, and in this way contribute to the tourist development of Panama. At first the possibility of a Boeing 747 was considered, but in the end it was decided by the Airbus 330-200. The second aviation company in the country is open to 'joint ventures' with European airlines or worldwide because of its geographical position, which allows it to reach any destination easily. Nor does it rule out flying to the Dominican Republic and Cuba if the authorities of these countries provide it.
In October 2016, Air Panama announced a new route Costa Rica-Roatan. An alliance between Air Panama and the Honduras’ Tourism Board will allow Costa Ricans to travel from San José to Roatán in Honduras with just one stop in Panama. This possibility will be available with two flights a week, Thursdays and Sundays during high season, starting November 15 and extending through February 28, 2017. Roatán is an island in the Caribbean which rests on an exposed coral reef, and it provides great opportunities for scuba diving. White sandy beaches and pristine waters have made of Roatán one of the most popular places in Honduras.
