Panama Will Build New International Airport in Aguadulce, Coclé Province

Infrastructure Upgrades Panama's Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) submitted a draft of a plan to build a new airport in the central provinces yesterday, outlining the anticipated costs for the project. Yesterday the National Assembly reported the presentation by the CAA that totals about $100 million dollars. Although the National Assembly did not specify the location of the new airport, on Thursday president Ricardo Martinelli said it would be located in the town of Aguadulce in the Coclé province. Rafael Barcenas, the director of the CAA, said that so far this year they have invested approximately $40 million dollars in infrastructure. Barcenas spoke before the Communications and Transportation Commission of the National Assembly and presented a report on his management of the CAA. He said his primary objective is to budget and complete projects that were started (under the previous administration) but never finished. (La Estrella)

Editor's Comment: Somebody spoke to me about this article, saying rumors of the imminent arrival of Disney and Mickey Mouse to Panama is prompting the investment. Hey, I thought that was going to happen in Gorgona... (grin) But wow, $100 million dollars? That's a whole lot of airport so it's going to be international and capable of receiving tourists who want to enjoy Panama's Pacific beaches, providing easier and faster access than Tocumen. Aguadulce is a good spot. From there you can hit the already developed Pacific beach areas, shoot down to the Azuero, or head off towards Santiago. The value of real estate in that area just went up. Gentlemen, start your engines...

This is a weird place for an airport. It will take as long to get anywhere on the ground from there as you spent in the air getting there.
Besides that, it will never happen. If Don supported gambling on this site (he doesn't) I would bet anyone a dollar this airport is never built.
