Is 2024 based on some sort of construction schedule? Or a projection based on when demand will require more gates?

It was relatively close to opening, but it's obvious they're not going to need it for a while. Copa is projecting < 40 flights/day when it restarts. I suppose they'll close half of the existing terminal until traffic picks up.

I was being sarcastic (hence the /s). My guess is as best as yours. I had a connecting flight from T2 back in early 2019, I assume it was a dry run as there were many officials on hand as we deplaned.

At least that's the latest extension on the construction contract. A nice image of the check-in area here. Who knows when they might be put in service.

Finally! June 22, 2022

An email arrived from Copa:We are pleased to announce that as of June 22, Copa Airlines will operate from the new Terminal 2 at Tocumen International Airport.

The new and spacious Terminal 2 facilities will provide our passengers a comfortable experience. We will have 38 check-in counters and 22 self-service kiosks, which include 11 counters and 4 self-service kiosks for the convenience of our ConnectMiles PreferMembers.

New Copa Club? New fast-track premier lines?

Seems UA is making the move to Terminal 2 as well. It also states that baggage handling will be much improved. Waiting for baggage for arriving CM flights was often a lengthy wait.

The image in that link is quite old. The new Metro branch to the airport connects to the right end of the new terminal and seems nearly complete.

I flew out of PTY on Tuesday afternoon (on an AF 787 that went tech Saturday night so almost 72 hours delayed) - the metro construction did seem quite complete. I hope I can use it the next time I am around which should be September.
