Panama extends suspension of international flights for one more month

A new extension was issued by the Government of Panama to extend the suspension of international commercial aviation and passenger transport flights for another 30 days.
Resolution 133 of the Civil Aeronautical Authority states that the extension will be counted as of 11:59 pm on August 22, 2020.

On March 22, after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in Panama, the National Government ordered the suspension of arrivals and departures of international flights for public health reasons, while the country has lived five months in quarantine, allowing circulation only for 2 hours twice (or for women 3 times) a week.

Only flights for the transport of cargo, products and medical equipment and supplies, as well as humanitarian flights, were authorized.

Recently, a Controlled Operations Center for the interconnection of international commercial aviation was enabled at the Tocumen International Airport. Likewise, the controlled entry of Panamanians and residents is allowed on a limited basis.
