Cool, Green and the best Coffee in the world
I take that flight a couple times a year because my destination in the U.S. is Charlotte and US Air has a non-stop out of San Jose. And yes, it is a M-W-F.
However Air Panama's web site is goofy and has been for 3-4 years. Some days you can see the schedule but it doesn't show prices, Then some days pricing is shown but you can't make reservations on-line. Last time everything was OK, but when I 'pushed the button' to make the reservations, nothing happened. Then I couldn't get back on the site. An hour later I got an email confirming my reservation. ?????
Can only suggest you just keep returning to the site. The alternative is to go to their office in David
Or go to Anavilma at Viajes David in downtown Boquete and leave the the aggravation with her.
I would try booking 2 one way tickets. That worked for me one time.
Does the David airport charge a departure tax for the international flight? The last time I looked a long time ago San Jose's departure tax was $26.
Larry and others who replied to my post...what was your most recent price from David to San Jose on Air Panama? Thanks for your comments.
Didn't have luck finding round trips, one way was $125 + "additional fees":
I emailed KAYAK and SkyScanner to ask about flight schedules from DAV to anywhere, still waiting for a reply. I would fly DFW to DAV direct in a heartbeat when/if it becomes available.
Thanks Jim...I too have had difficulty trying to get info. from Air Panama regarding price and the other travel search engines do not have this flight in their registry for some reason. I flew David to SJO a few years ago for $125 a one way trip and want to confirm this for some friends of mine who I've convinced to come for our fabulous Boquete Jazz and Blues festival in 2013.
If I hear back from either booking site, I'll post it. We visit family in Chiriqui at least once a year and a DAV direct flight would be excellent (especially while all of Panama City is under construction).
If you can't visit Anavilma, please email her at email@example.com
She can answer all of your booking questions.
Thanks Judy...think I'll have to do that.
Got a reply from KAYAK:
"As soon as the flights become available, you should see them start coming up in the search results. Anything that's out there, you should get from our results :)
Please let us know if you experience any issues with this in the future,
KAYAK Software Engineer"
I don't know how their site "finds" new routes but KAYAK apparently isn't having any better luck than we are.
Best to book through Anavilma like Bonnie says. If you have a Jubilado card you'll get 25% off the trip if you book round trip.
