Panama continues to be on the radar of major airlines. In the first months of 2016, Emirates Airline and the German carrier Lufthansa will begin service to Panama.
Talks are also being held between transportation officials and the Israeli airline El-Al and Turkish Airlines.
Tocumen Manager Joseph Fidanque III said that meetings have also been held with representatives from Virgin Atlantic, owned by billionaire Richard Branson, owner of Virgin Group.
This airline is considered among the most luxurious within the industry and operates transatlantic flights from London, England.
The expansion of Tocumen will enable the arrival of more wide-body planes, which are those used by European and Asian airlines for long-haul flights.
Currently 21 airlines operate out of Tocumen. The facility handles 15 million passengers a year.
