The Boeing 737-800 landed this morning at about 10:50 am, and they were received by the President of Panama Ricardo Martinelli.
Martinelli said after much coordination, they managed to bring this first charter flight Rio Hato, marking the beginning of many more to come.
"We have been informed, that with the arrival of this first flight in the coming months they are expecting to bring in one flight per week, and as the demand increases the number of flights could increase to four flights per week for next season," he said.
Martinelli said this area of the country will benefit from the arrival of these tourists, because this is a very privileged region with great potential.
He said "I am very happy we built this airport in Rio Hato because first you have to create the infrastructure, and then bring the tourists."
The Panamanian president also said more hotels are planned for the area, which will draw more tourists and more charter flights. (Press Release)
Editor's Comment: And, there's another big infrastructure project completed by the Martinelli administration, just in time for the election on 4 May. There's no mistaking the timing - there is exactly one more month to go. They probably have a big board in their "war room" with a list of large projects to open, ribbon cut, and inaugurate on a daily basis between now and election day. They are hammering home the primary message, that they have built more crap than anyone else in the history of the country.
