Mega Infrastructure Projects

Why Panama?

For years Panama has been investing most of its Canal income in mega infrastructure projects. These are the latest:

Why Panama?

  • More direct connections than any other South American airport.
  • New modern terminal in Panama City to be completed in 2022.
  • Further extension of the route network and capacity.
Why Panama?

Metro lines

  • Panama has the only metro system in Middle America.
  • Lines 1 and 2 have cost around 1.5-2 billion US dollars, the entire annual income from the Canal.
  • Line 1 was completed in 2014.
  • Line 2 was finished in 2019.

Why Panama?

Conference Centre

  • The biggest conference and event center in Central America was completed  in Panama City in 2021.

Why Panama?

Cruise ship terminal
