Coba Airlines

We are planning our trip to Bocas for Sept. and can fly direct from Toronto to Panama on Copa Airlines. We arrive at 2:15 PM and plan to fly to Bocas on the Aeroperlas 5:25 PM flight out of Tucomen. Wondering what Copa Airlines service is like.

You should be alright if there are no delays... Taxi from Tocumen to Albrook at that time of day shouldn't be more than 45 minutes - bit less if traffic is light.

Copa is a good airline - always had good service - new planes and great safety record.

Cheers,

Andrew

Thanks

We've used Taca Airlines and hoping that Copa was similar. They are starting flights out of Toronto later this week. The Aeroperlas flight to Bocas leaves from Tocumen so we don't have to change airports. Apparently it's a new service that flys from Albrook to Tucomen and then on to Bocas. That's if they don't change before Sept.

Flown both - similar - both beat the pants off most American airlines.

Albrook to PTY and then Bocas - I can't believe that - it would be a 2 minute flight - too much fuel wasted taking off and landing for not much gain.

Probably just PTY to Bocas

Checked Taca website flight # 158 from Albrook to Tocumen is 10 minutes. I guess that allows for takeoff and landing. it saves us transport between airports and lets us get to Bocas in 10 hrs from Toronto. Didn't want to try getting to Albrook for a 4:50 flight when we don't land until 2:15.

We have just returned from Panama City and we flew Copa. Excellent service that included food and wine as part of a fair ticket price. The plane was on time and the crew was professional. To put it succinctly, we fly them every time we can.

I heard talks of Tocumen initiating domestic flights to Bocas and other destinations directly from this airport bypassing the need to transfer to Albrook. Is this the case here? I doubt there is a flight from Tocumen to Albrook.
