Denver to have a new international air destination Panama City

United Airlines is all set to operate nonstop flights between Panama City and Denver International Airport, said officials on Wednesday. Top leaders in Denver had their eyes set on this Central American city for a nonstop flight, for a very long time, seeing it as a gateway to beautiful places throughout Latin America.

The service would start on 3rd December; however, subject to government approval. The service would be handed daily November to August and 5 times in a week in September and October. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, DIA manager Kim Day as well as United Airlines officials declared the new flight operation, on Wednesday, at a news conference at the City & County Building.

Last year, John Hickenlooper went to the Panama City, to promote commercial interests between the 2 cities. On Wednesday, he stated that the city would be a very important place for international businesses, mainly when the Panama Canal expansion is completed. He told that it would be a huge source of commerce, and it is incredibly important for Denver to be connected there.

Panama Canal functions, as a very significant trade path, linking the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea as well as the Atlantic Ocean, but its importance to the global oil industry diminished in the past few years because of altering trade patterns as well as the face that a whole lot of modern tankers are very large to go through it, as per the United States Energy Information Administration.
