Emirates has announced its plans to launch services to Panama City beginning 1st February, 2016. The new service will be the longest non-stop flight in the world (17 hours 35 minutes in the Westbound direction) and will be Emirates’ first gateway destination in Central America.
Service to Panama City, Panama’s capital and largest city by population, will commence with a daily flight operated by a Boeing 777-200LR aircraft in a 3-class layout -  8 in First, 42 in Business, and 216 in Economy. The aircraft can carry up to 15 tonnes of cargo. Service to Panama City will operate through Tocumen International Airport (PTY).
