They would follow this idea, over the resumption of some destinations that are not available since March 2020: Port au Prince, Barbados, Holguin, Santiago de los Caballeros, Salta, New Orleans, Puerto Vallarta, Recife, Salvador de Bahia and Liberia.
Wish they would hurry up and finish T2. Sooo much nicer than T1. Then they could start remodeling T1 (?).
Well, Tocumen's T2 is actually open, but only on the airside. Right now, they're opening other sections, but in a slower and gradual pace, because of a legal dispute against the construction contractor due to breach of contract as far as I know. And regarding T1, they're just upgrading the air conditioning system in some areas.
Yes, I went thru there 3 days ago; thus my remark. If it were in the US, you call the bonding company and get it done.... What is the deal with the taxiway toward the North end that also took forever and I see is still blocked with traffic cones?
AC system in T1, especially the North extension is dismal. Either its too hot and stenchy or too cold. Not to mention the dismal lighting.
