Skytrax Awards
Air travelers have named 
Panama Tocumen International Airport as the Best Airport in Central America and  the Caribbean. Skytrax organized the largest survey ever, covering 410 airports and surveying over 12.8 million passengers. The results are the most prestigious accolades in the industry, awarded to the best airports for service, security and immigration, check-in, shopping and departures. Second on the list for Central America in 2014 was Costa Rica's San Jose Juan Santamaria Airport. 
Quality Award for Cancun

Last year, about 16 million passengers were greeted at the Cancun International Airport (CUN). But it's not the number that the airport was recognized for - it's the quality. 


The General Assembly of the International Council of Asia-Pacific Airports presented the airport with the distin-guished Recognition for Quality in Airport Services Award in June.


CUN is the second largest airport in Mexico, and is number one in international travellers.  Terminals 1 and 2 have recently been expanded, and expansion work on Terminal 3 is currently underway. A forth terminal is expected to be completed in 2016, and will be capable of processing 800,000 passengers per year, and will also offer many dining options, duty-free shops and an on-site hotel by the Aloft chain.

With the memory of the punishing winter of 2013 still on the minds of everyone who lives north of Mexico, many are already planning their next winter getaway.  Will it be Costa Rica? The Dominican Republic? Los Cabos? With convenient flights to so many great destinations, there is no reason to spend all winter shovelling snow and scraping ice off your windows.
Costa Rica
Costa Rica has two principal international airports, which receive flights from many cities in North America, South America and Europe. The Juan Santamaria Airport in San Jose is the largest and busiest passenger airport and is connected to the city and the volcanic area directly. Daniel Oduber Quiros is in Liberia and is considered the tourist hub for all visitors to the Pacific coast. It is less than 
thirty minutes from many of the principle hotels and venues for M&I business. This airport has seen an increase of 16% inthe year-over-year number of passengers from 2012 to 2013.
The international airports throughout the Republic of Panama  received 7,784,328 passengers in 2013, an increase of 12% over the previous year. With steady growth as a touristic, economic and labor destination, in 2014 the government opened two new international airports in the provinces of Colon and Rio Hato Cocle. Both  are negotiating with commercial airlines and are already receiving charters. Additionally, at the Tocumen International Airport in Panama City, a new terminal with 12 new boarding gates is under construction. It will open in 2016 parallel to the existing North Terminal .
Azul Airlines: In just three years since its founding, Azul has already transformed the Brazilian commercial aviation scene. In May this year, Azul and Trip entered into an agreement that, if approved, will further strengthen the airline and solidify its position in the market.
