TBIT internal connection
Hi, I’m arriving at LAX TBIT on Copa and flying out on Cathay also in TBIT. Do I need to pick up my bag and re-check and go through immigration and customs? Thanks.
Hi Angela! Yes, anytime you’re connecting from an international flight to the United States you’ll need to clear US Immigration.
The only exceptions are airports where you preclear US Immigration (like those in Canada, or Abu Dhabi), but Panama City isn’t one of those.
