Vivacolombia will not use ONX which is 45 mins from the city nor RIH which is 75 mins from the city. Also Panama will not give them any 5th freedom, remember that the Motta family which own a lot of CM stock and the Atenza duty free stores, are the ones who put the most money for the presidential campaign of (tortugon) Varela and his inept Panameñista Party. They are heavily invested in PTY and probably not big fans of competitions now that CM profits are in the drain.
If anything I feel vivacolombia would be better off in PTY going head to head with CM. Passport control is very slow at BLB and they are building a new metro line to connect PTY to the city, which will be ready in 2020.
