Airlines Offer Cheap Flights to Panama



United airlines has some of the cheapest flights to Panama City from Los Angeles LAX airport right now.

I don't know if it's because of the news lately, but in the 12 years I've been traveling here, it's never been this easy to find a cheap flight to Panama City with the domestic US carriers. That's especially true if you don't mind taking a quick stop off in Houston, and want to fly during the day.

Normally, the cheapest flights to Panama from LAX have been 'red eye' flights, meaning you get no sleep whatsoever if you are like me and can't really get comfortable flying coach while listening to people shuffle around, cough and whatever else people do when they sleep on planes.

I'd much rather fly during the day, after a good nights sleep, thank you!

Now, that being said, it's pretty hard to beat the excellent service I get when flying the Panamanian airlines. The cheap flights I usually get from LAX flying Copa are well organized, clean and the attendants are very friendly, so I will still take my in-country flights with them. However, when the prices are this cheap, it's hard not to give their sister airline a chance. Since I can still use my United frequent flyer miles on both airlines, that's not an issue either.

In addition to cheap flights to Panama, I noticed that cheap hotels (the kind that are really nice but don't charge much) are on sale now too, at least through the newly discovered booking.com site. I was able to book 2 nights in the center of Panama City for just $40 a night...wow! That's a really good price for a good hotel in Panama.

The bottom line is if you are thinking about taking a trip to Panama by air, now is one of the best times I've seen to book a cheap flight to Panama.

While you're in the country, make sure you take an extra day or two to take a tour of our organic coffee community. Simply send us an email or give us a call. We have comfortable accommodations for as little as $25 a night, and you'll experience the real Panama here in the rural mountains of Chiriqui Province.
