The Panamanian airline Copa is offering some pretty sweet fares around 300$ total between New York‘s JFK airport and Tegucigalpa (TGU) that are good for late this summer and into fall, perhaps because Toncontín airport is kind of a hazard and they’re trying to drum up business once shoulder season comes up.
You may have read recently (perhaps in light of Kent’s Plane Answers article) that TGU is closing down temporarily to rectify some of their runway and approach issues — bear in mind that Copa may reroute you to San Pedro instead. No worries, that’s just down the street.
And as far as Tegucigalpa goes as a destination? I haven’t heard a lot of great things about the capital, proper, but the city is 60 miles away from the Pacific Ocean and within spitting distance of El Salvador and Nicaragua. At the very least you use these cheap tickets as a stepping stone to your real vacation in Central America.
Tickets appear to be valid across a wide variety of dates starting in September but excluding Thanksgiving weekend. Use a flex search on Kayak to find dates that work for you.
