Panama Airport connection times? is 4 hrs ok?

Postby indi06 » Sun Dec 09, 2012 12:55 am


I'm heading to Cuba but when i booked my flights through the tickets have been done separate therefore I have been told i will need to clear customs/immigration and then check back in, drop bag and go back through security.

I land 815 am on a weekday and my next flight is 12.15 so i have 4 hours between flights.

Do you think this will be ok or will I be cutting it fine?

I would have thought so, I haven't done Panama as a transfer, but I have transfered at Chicago O'Hare and also Atlanta and both times been fine. Atlanta was about 4 hours and Chicago less, and then at Chicago the finger printing machine broke down, so they wouldn't let anyone through!! Needless to say I still got my internal flight easily, but I could have done without that!!

if you had less than, say 2 hours, I might have suggested changing it, but I think thats fine.
