We're also getting a nonstop to EWR from TUS starting 12/17. It will be operated by a B735 7 days a week. It's a trial flight so get everyone to buy tickets so it stays! TUS's only nonstop to the NY area!!

CD. del Carmen is in the Mexican state of Chiapas, I think so anyway. I once talked to a person who went there, he said the service was because of the oil business. Thats probably why they started service, to tap some of the untapped oil of Chiapas

Flyboyaz, are you sure the EWR-TUS flight will be a 735? I am not sure if that plane has the range for that flight (I could be wrong though...). A 737-700 would be able to handle the route without any problem. Is this the first nonstop from TUS to NYC?

CO was flying nonstop (on Saturdays only) between EWR-TUS and EWR-Albuquerque with 737-500s prior to 9-11.

It is so interesting that lately CO and COexpress are opening or will open routes based on the oil industry. Since BFL got that big grant to lure CO, and now this little city in Mexico is getting service. CO already has service to other purely industrial locations in Mexico. I've heard Merida is like that. Never been there though.
Many, many, many years ago CO flew to Maracaibo Venezuela. Wonder if they'll be going back.
I think it is only a matter of time before CO starts serving some middle eastern oil "crude destinations." Maybe they would do the old TWA route to CAI and Riyadh or something similar. Kuwait City maybe, maybe? Kuwait goes nonstop to JFK a couple times a week in addition to their flights via LHR.
I've heard they're interested in Dubai. Even though will codeshare with Emirates, they still compete with carriers they codeshare with. Witness KLM and CO competing on the IAH-AMS route.
