AT used to have direct flights from Edmonton to Panama for the last few years, but it looks like they’ve stopped flying there from western Canada. Which means that now we have to either fly over Toronto (Air Canada) or over Houston (United). I’ve sent AT an email about it, but so far I haven’t heard anything back, not that I’m really surprised It was probably not profitable enough to fly directly from western Canada, they’ve cut the direct flight to Liberia, Costa Rica as well.
Too bad. I know that from Toronto they have one flight per week. Maybe it would be better to write to COPA airlines and ask them if they have plans to fly to western Canada now as Air Transat stopped. COPA is more expensive but service and food was amazing last time I used their service.
