Aguadulce and Penonome Not Good for Airport

The towns of Aguadulce and Penonome both wanted to be home to Panama’s next international airport, but a study reveals that neither will be.

The Andina de Fomento Corporation determined that both central province towns lacked the necessary infrastructure for this type of project, and building a new international airport to standard could cost around $100 million.

Now under evaluation are the landing strip in Rio Hato, as well as the existing domestic airports in Chitre and Santiago.

The big Pacific beach tourism and real estate projects are closer to Rio Hato, about an hour and a half by car from Panama City.
