Emirates Flight To Panama Will Be World's Longest Non-Stop Route

Flight Time To Panama City Estimated To Average 17 Hours, 35 Minutes

Panama City will be Emirates’ first gateway in Central America, but getting there will be a major time investment. The new route will be the world’s longest non-stop flight.

On Thursday, Emirates announced its plans to launch services to Panama City, beginning 1st February, 2016. But passengers will spend most of the day on the airplane. The flight is expected to average 17 hours 35 minutes in the Westbound direction.

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. Key imports to the country include pharmaceuticals, machinery products, iron/steel rods, and electronics. Service to Panama City will operate through Tocumen International Airport (PTY).

“Panama City will be our first destination gateway in Central America, providing a convenient option for our passengers travelling from or through our global hub in Dubai and onward to destinations throughout Central America, the Caribbean and the northern part of South America,” said His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline & Group. “We’re also pleased to be the only commercial airline to offer a daily, First Class service to travellers on what will be the world’s longest non-stop flight.”

"It is gratifying to see how diplomatic efforts focused on generating development and prosperity for Panama materialize," said Isabel Saint Malo de Alvarado, Vice President of the Republic of Panama.  “New doors to the country will open with a direct connection to the Middle East - a strong and thriving region with great synergies to both Panama and Latin America.”

Later this year, Emirates will be adding 4 additional routes to its global network including Mashhad, Iran and Orlando in September; Bamako, Mali in October; and Bologna in November.
