Panama continues to be the “Hub of the Americas” with the newly announced non-stop flight to Denver, Colorado.

The route will be operated by United Airlines with a Boeing 737-700 aircraft that has space for 118 passengers. The service will begin on December 3, 2014 and flight time will be approximately 4 and a half hours.

“This new route will provide a link between the premier connecting hub in North America at DIA with Panama City, the business and economic capital of Central America. [It] will also provide access to over 20 additional connecting markets in Central and South America via our strategic partners Copa Airlines.” said Steve Jaquith, United Airlines managing director.

It is hoped that this new route will help to increase tourism in Panama as well as the rest of Latin America.
