Santa Barbara Airlines is planning to commence service to Miami on 16 June 2004. Service will be operated by TransMeridian Airlines. It is still unclear if it will be regularly scheduled or a scheduled charter service, but I am hearing one daily each to Caracas and Maracaibo. I'll keep you guys updated, but they did file a DOT renewal today:

Great news! It seems to me, that they intend on becoming Venezuela's flag carrier. Wish them all the best.

I think that they want to start scheduled service to MIA. The market is definitely there, especially if they decide to do Ft. Lauderdale instead of MIA. South Florida has definitely become the most popular destination for Venezuelan's who are leaving their country in search of a better opportunity to live and work.

I thought Santa Barbara had rights to Fort Lauderdale not Miami but I am glad that Venezuelan companies have faith in the country and are investing in their own future. I hope Venezuelans will use their own companies instead of American.

Hello everyone
I totally understand the FLL aspect over MIA but that could be tricky, people in Venezuela would recognize Miami right away but they might get confused with Ft. Laurderdale and not visualize it as a South Florida gateway.But FLL has its advantages over MIA, the airport is not as crowded- it's much more user friendly than MIA, and they would only have direct competition from AA at FLL. In MIA they would have AA, Aeropostal,and Lan as competition.
Im guessing the equipment used would either be TMA's 757's or 727's ?

They have rights to fly to both. Before 9.11, they were planning to launch Ft. Lauderdale. Though now they are planning to launch Miami, with Ft. Lauderdale possibly coming on later.

There is no confusion. Venezuelans know very well that Ft. Lauderdale is in South Florida.

the airport is not as crowded

FLL's T4 is becoming way overcrowded. Way too many international flights are being added (which is a very, very good thing), though, as a consequence, the terminal is getting too busy.

These load factors are doing good with CCS-FLL and it is always full flight on their way to CCS. Is that should need to make expansion added second daliy anytime soon? I am still waiting to hear about getting any with those news from AA.

Regards!
