If you are willing to pay a bit extra for VIP service, you will love the Tocumen Royal Saloon VIP service. Here is how it works.
- They meet you at your gate when your flight gets in.
- They whisk you away to a VIP lounge.
- They assist you in filling out the customs forms (yes, the forms are in Spanish!)
- You can use free WiFi and sip a beverage while they go get your luggage.
That's it. Not only is it relaxing, but your wait time is much shorter. Instead of waiting an hour in line to go through customs, your arrival concierge gets to cut to the front of the line. The cost is $65 for the first person and $40 for each additional person on the same flight. (Additional fees may apply during holidays.) They also provide expedited VIP service when you leave.
For more information, check out their website Tocumen Royal Saloon. (Make sure and click on the American flag if you would like to view the English version of their website.) If you like VIP service, hate lines, and are willing to pay a bit more, VIP service at Tocumen International Airport is just one more reason to love Panama.
