On Friday (October 15, 2021), Delta Air Lines announced the launch of new service to Panama City, Panama (PTY) from Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK) and Orlando (MCO). Service to Panama City from Los Angeles and Orlando will start on December 18th, and from New York on December 20, 2021. The carrier will also add a second Saturday flight to Panama from Atlanta (ATL) on December 18th. In total, this winter Delta will offer 13 weekly flights between four U.S. gateways and Panama, the most flights to the country since launching service in 1998.

In Friday’s announcement, Delta Air Lines’ Managing Director – Latin America, the Caribbean and South America, Luciano Macagno, 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.”


The new Los Angeles and Orlando service will operate once-weekly with a 199-seat Boeing 757 and a 180-seat Boeing 737-900, respectively. The JFK-Panama City route will operate three times per week with a 160-seat Boeing 737-800, increasing to four weekly flights in March 2022.
