[question]J Timothy Lovett (USA, I own a house in Volcan) - April 19, 2020
my car is currently parked at Enrique Malek airport as I departed for a two week trip to Ecuado on 4 March and was not allowed to return on as planned on 18 March. I am currently in the US waiting for travel restrictions to be lifted to return to Panama. What should I do about my car parked at the airport.

This needs got be fixed. no direct flight to San Jose anymore and not one single direct flight to usa. this is corruption at its finest. COPS is allowed to control this and this needs to stop. this is criminal. I will purchase my own line and will create a direct route to Miami if this doesn't happen soon. and ill do it at a price to hurt COPA....

Are there any flights TO / FROM David other than those from Panama City? i.e. Any international flights? Anything from Costa Rica?
[2 stars]Gerald K Thomas (Miami) - October 13, 2014
Enrique Malek Airport needs to bring in a couple of international flights from the US. Miami, Florida should prove to be the best to fly out of since it is the hub for American Airlines.

Yes please get a direct flight from the U.S. or please someone start another airline besides Air Panama. I'm tired of Air Panama.

We were asked to pay a $15 airport tax today authority said they always had it ,funny we have never had it before. And it must be in cash,can any one say bride.

Also the airport can not bring in international flights because they put the fuel too close to the tower.

Great airport, great area. Please pump up the volume!!! Get some flights direct from the US!

Anyone have the latest updates on when the Enrique Malek airport will actually be in operation for accepting flights from the U.S. which airlines etc? We need to book flights soon and would sure like to go directly to David instead of PTY to PAC and then to DAV. Where are getting the information FROM?

The answer to the question about when David Airport will receive nonstop flights from the U.S. is: I've just read that they hope to have it operating December 2013. The terminal is 50% coplete and the runway extension is 60% done. Fingers crossed!!!
[question]Stepahanie Rogers (Los Vegas, Nevada USA) - May 2, 2013
What seems to be the "hold up" in regards to this airport? It would seem to me that Panama & Costa Rica could benefit from it opening....providing they both keep (ego's) out it.
[question]K Emms (Near Toronto Canada) - April 29, 2013
Live in Canada.I have been looking at places to spend a month or two in the winter. I Like the area near David because of the golf courses. I cant seem to find a flight from the USA to David and the alternative is 3 stops to get there. If anyone knows who and when an airline will be flying direct to USA please advise. Thanks Kerry

Our airport in David has recently had some expansion and nice updates. It is very clean, with good restrooms (!), a coffee shop and a restaurant.

We are awaiting news of direct flights to and from the US. We have been told by personnel at the airport that it will be "soon" and they think the carriers will be Copa and "someone else." I am going back to the US in April and I sure would love to fly out of David, without having to go AirPanama to Panama City or to San Jose, Costa Rica!

If anyone has more recent updates by all means let us know!

I loved everything about the David Airport accept one big thing (Big for Handicapped people). I'm in a wheelchair, there is no equipment, as of yet, to get a handicapped person off the plane in David. I have been carried off the plane each time which causes alot of stress for both the guys carrying you and for the handicapped person.
