Emirates Airline & Group’s Chairman and Chief Executive Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said:

“Panama City will be our first destination gateway in Central America, providing a convenient option for our passengers traveling from or through our global hub in Dubai and onward to destinations throughout Central America, the Caribbean and the northern part of South America. We’re also pleased to be the only commercial airline to offer a daily, First Class service to travelers on what will be the world’s longest non-stop flight.”

Besides passenger flight facility, Emirates Airlines also  launched cargo flight up to 16.53 tons.

Panama City seems to be very excited. Panama Republic’s vice president Isabel Saint Malo de Alvarado express their feelings:

“It is gratifying to see how diplomatic efforts focused on generating development and prosperity for Panama materialize. New doors to the country will open with a direct connection to the Middle East—a strong and thriving region with great synergies to both Panama and Latin America”

Right now, longest flight world record is 17 hours between Sydney and Dallas by Qantas Airlines.
