Where to find cheap flights from Panama

We’ll always source the cheapest routes for you, but if you want to go a step further, then we recommend clicking onto our calendar tool and looking at the fares of your chosen route across a month instead of a single day. This enables you to cherry-pick the day that offers the lowest fare. You will also find flying Monday through to Thursday tends to yield better prices as these days are less popular to fly on.

Low-cost carriers, like Spirit, won’t offer you first-class service but they will offer slashed prices, which will entice any budget traveller.

If you’re a planner by nature, then booking well in advance will see dividends, especially for long-haul journeys. We advise if you are looking at a far-flung destination to make your booking around seven months ahead of when you intend to fly.
