The hub of the Americas
The main airport is in Tocumen, about 24 km from Panama City, and its code is PTY. Known as the "hub of the Americas", it operates international flights to over 65 destinations in 30 countries. There are some 15 passenger airlines, the main ones being Copa Airlines and TACA. The journey to & from Spain (Madrid) is operated by Iberia, sometimes with a direct flight, and others with stopovers in San Jose, Costa Rica or Miami. Upon landing, entering the country is very slow (I pent about 2 hours between immigration queues and baggage scanning). Once in the street you have public buses and taxis (25USD) to get to downtown.
