Tocumen moving sidewalks operating after three year break


Posted 31/10/2019

After a three-year hiatus, four passenger  moving  sidewalks on the north wharf of Tocumen International Airport should be operating at the end of November

Passengers who use this extension of the air terminal, especially those who make connections in Panama, complain about the lack of  the mechanical sidewalks

One has been operating since mid-October and new sections will be added in the coming weeks. 

In the agreement negotiated between Tocumen and the company at the end of September, the contractor will assume the investment to put all the sidewalks into operation, while Tocumen will pay for maintenance, which was not included in the original contract.

In addition to the lack of maintenance, the sidewalks presented problems in their operation due to design failures and that being exposed to changes in temperature on the outside, condensation occurred when coming into contact with the air conditioning.

Four new walkways operating at Tocumen


Making connections will be easier

Posted 08/11/2019

Four new mobile passenger walkways are now operational at Tocumen International Airport following a three- year hiatus caused by design flaws in the original installation. They will be of special benefit to transiting travelers passengers, making connections in the Panamanian terminal. 

To ensure  that the  walkways will continue to operate smoothly the airport authority  used direct contract  to hire a company to build  a protective structure that together with a vapor barrier that will prevent condensation and rust  and the entry of waste that may affect the mechanisms of the treadmills
