Emirates Airlines postpones launch

Panama City 3 Mar 2016

Emirates Airline, which was scheduled to launch what it called the world's longest non- stop flight this month between Dubai and Panama City, has said it is postponing those plans for around a year.

The launch, which had been slated for March 31, will now occur in late 2016 or early 2017 due to "operational factors," the Dubai airline said in a statement released in Panama on Wednesday.

Emirates defers Panama plans over bilateral rights delays

Emirates (EK, Dubai Int'l) has indefinitely deferred the launch of flights to Panamá City Tocumen Int'l after it failed to secure adequate bilateral approvals for codesharing flights across Central America through partner, Copa Airlines (CM, Panamá City Tocumen Int'l).

Bloomberg reports Emirates only managed to secure approvals from three or four of the thirteen countries ahead of its original February route launch date. Given the delays, the launch eventually slipped to March before being postponed to either late 2016/early 2017.

“Panama was a sort of entry point for South and Central America for us and has huge potential, but we needed to get the aero-political structures in place,” Emirates president Timothy Clark said.

Clark added that staff already hired in Panama would be retained while efforts to resolve the bilateral issues are underway.
