RDU to offer direct flight to Panama City
Raleigh-Durham International Airport has added another nonstop, overseas destination. Panama City will be the airport's 10th international route.
Why it matters: The Panama City flight promises to provide easier connections to the rest of Latin America, RDU Chief Executive Officer Michael Landguth said at a news conference on Monday.
- RDU is one of the largest American markets with no direct service to Central or South America, per Landguth.
Details: The Copa Airlines flight to Panama City will begin in June and operate out of Terminal 2 four times per week and on a 160-seat Boeing 737-800.
- From Panama City, travelers can connect to more than 55 other destinations in the Caribbean and Latin America.
The big picture: The addition of Panama City continues the strong growth the airport experienced last year, serving a record 14.5 million passengers.
