Luciano Macagno, Managing Director – Latin America, Caribbean and South Florida, Delta Airlines, said:

From its breathtaking beaches and vibrant culture to its competitive economy in Latin America, Panama is a highly sought destination for business and leisure travelers alike. With our new direct flights from our L.A. and JFK hubs that offer significant U.S. connectivity, as well as the demand from the local Orlando community, we’re looking forward to introducing Delta’s signature hospitality and exceptional onboard experience to more customers planning their next trip.

In total, Delta will offer 13 weekly flights between four U.S. cities and Panama this winter, the most the airline operated to the country since launching flights in 1998.

Passengers travelling on Delta connecting through Los Angeles can connect to 48 U.S. cities, while New York offers flights to 46 U.S. cities. At Los Angeles, Delta is investing $1.86 billion to modernize and upgrade Terminals 2 and 3 and connect them to the Tom Bradley International Terminal. The central head house is set to open in Q1 2022. Additionally, the Delta-funded New York JFK’s Terminal 4 redevelopment program will be ready by summer 2023, with 10 new gates, an additional domestic baggage claim carousel and the consolidation of all of Delta’s New York JFK operations into Terminal 4.

Meanwhile, Delta Airlines recently announced a significant expansion out of Boston with 2 new International and 3 new Domestic routes.
