Wingo takes off its first flight between Santo Domingo and Panama, with a frequency of two weekly flights, operated on Thursdays and Sundays. This will be the first time that a low-cost airline offers this route, which will land at the Panama Pacifico Airport, located just 15 minutes from downtown Panama City and close to the Río Hato hotel zone.
In total, Wingo, as a low-cost airline, has made available to Dominicans about 3,000 seats per month between both routes. The flights will be operated in modern Boeing 737-800 Next Generation aircraft, which have a capacity of 186 passengers. Fares for this route start at US$103 each way.
With this takeoff, Wingo already reaches five routes in the Dominican Republic, which shows the importance of said market for the airline. In addition to this recently inaugurated route, Wingo offers flights to Medellín and Bogotá from Las Américas International Airport, in Santo Domingo, and from Punta Cana International Airport.
“We celebrate a new milestone in our operation in the Dominican Republic, specifically in Santo Domingo, with the inauguration of our third route to Panama. With the five routes that we currently offer in this Caribbean country, Wingo offers more than 40 flights per week, which represents close to 35,000 seats per month for travelers interested in visiting the country, as well as for Dominicans who wish to travel to Medellín, Bogotá or Panama at low cost. Our commitment to this territory and to continue contributing to its development and economy will continue in 2023,” said Jorge Jiménez, Wingo’s Commercial and Planning Director.
“We are happy and proud to be able to offer this new route to Panama together with Wingo. This new operation will support the growth of passenger traffic at our airports and brings us closer to the goal of transforming our country into a new regional hub that provides travel opportunities to multiple destinations”, added Mónika Infante, CEO of AERODOM.
