THE CENTRAL AMERICAN AVIATION THREAD
"Tribute to Braniff in Central America"
Welcome again to all the posters, readers and followers on this series !
I don’t get information about other Central American destination besides Panama City, speaking about the defunct Braniff International Airways from the United States. So, this edition could have been rather named as: Tribute to Braniff in Panama City...
The flying colors operated from Miami and New Orleans as non-stops to Panama City. Dallas/Ft. Worth also launched direct services there.
Their flights originated in Miami used to continue to South America, starting a legacy that is still in place nowadays. By the end of the 70s and allowing limited weekly frequencies, their jets flew out of Panama City to Bogota, Cali, Guayaquil, Quito, Lima and La Paz. They usually continued to their far stations placed in deep South America.
I guess the 727 was the usual plane in Panama City, in those days.
Most of this information was taken from Braniff Schedule. Summer 1978.
