A good article on air service to Roatan, in the Bay Islands of Honduras. Given that CO now serves the airline from IAH, AA and US (per below) are looking at stating service, things are (finally) looking up for more air service to Roatan.

Once a major United States airline is attracted to a new destination, other major airlines don't tend to ignore that fact. Such is the case with Roatan. Interest by other airlines has increased, following the February announcement by Continental Airlines to fly nonstop between Houston and Roatan starting June 12. Two months following the announcement, representatives from two of the six largest US airlines set foot on Roatan to begin exploring the viability of flying to the island.
Just because representatives of US Airways and American Airlines have gone to the length of coming to Roatan in April doesn't mean the two major airlines will automatically select the island as a new destination.

CO has been having great success, two flights on saturdays. There is talk around Honduras that CO is looking at adding a Mid week flight also during the summer.

How do you think this will effect the commuter lines such as SOSA and Atlantic? You will still have to fly them from Roatan to Utila or La Ceiba or from San Pedro Sula, but seems like a lot of the commuter traffic was generated off Roatan.

Roatan is an awesome place, but it has changed significantly. I was there about 10 years ago for a week and there was only one paved road. To get to the beach from our modest hotel, we walked across a dirt road and the ocean was right there, a lagoon, and then if you kept swimming, you would find the incredible coral reef. However, shortly after that, the Honduran government decided to blast a hole in the coral reef in order to provide access for cruise ships. HORRIBLE DECISION! It ruined half of the best preserved coral reef in the Carribean! We flew there on Islena Air from San Pedro Sula and actually got a coke with ice on the way out there. On the way back to San Pedro Sula, the plane held mayb 15 passengers and I was in the last row, enabling me to do anything I wanted to the luggage!
