Low-cost airline Wingo announced at an event last week in Panamá’s Tocumen International Airport, that it has received its certificate of operation for air transport service in the Central American country. Issued by Panama’s Civil Aviation Authority, the authorization allows the carrier to service routes throughout the country and Central America from Panamá City.
So far, Wingo, which flies between 28 cities in 11 countries, has not publicized new routes from Panamá.
Wingo is based in Colombia, but wholly owned by Panamanian legacy carrier Copa Airlines, which dominates flights out of its hub at Tocumen International Airport. While Copa participates in the Star Alliance with United Airlines and Colombia’s Avianca, Wingo as a low cost carrier does not.
