Not fair enough!! CINTRA holds good routes @ MEX.
6A is based at MTY and will sure be affected by this...!!
As always unfair things for all @ our aviation.
Mexico and the United States day by day are getting more and more ties of friendship no matter some people hate this idea!!! Today I met this new nice girl at school which is american... and loves living @ MEX and she says she'll stay here forever...!!!
Does the Mexico's-USA numbers of flights in a day, including all carriers flying, have surpassed the USA-Canada numbers of flights?

Benito Juarez International Airport in Mexico City was not included in the agreement per press release due to a very bad congestion problem. Hopefully Toluca airport will take off as a true second gateway (new access highway and passenger terminal built) for Mexico City.
I would expect JetBlue to apply for JFK-CUN and there now doesn't need to be a route case for LAX-CUN applications for second carrier.

Sounds really good and aprofitable for mexican airlines, like ZE, 6A and Avolar (airline code ??) I can imagine 6A or ZE flying MEX-MIA or MEX-JFK... but I can't understand why this new rule between both countries, MEX-LAX is served by AM MX JR and 6A is because MEX is the capital of Mexico or exist another reason for that..... I am a little bit confused..... cheers VIC

Hello all do any of you see now with this new agreement that Aeromexico will try to capitalize on certain markets that they are not in...Like Northern California. I know AM has a codeshare with MX, but I like AM service better. Mexicana has enjoyed all of Nor Cal's Airports SFO, OAK, SJC, SMF. I would love to see Aeromexico in Oakland to GDL, or AM to any other city in Mexico. I love their service. The AM jet would also look lovely in the bay area. Does anyone see Aviacsa moving into the Bay area also.

Excellent news. This is gonna ease up a few competitions (DL and UA competing for LAX-CUN, DL and AA competing for JFK-SJD, DL, FL and NK competing for MCO-CUN). Hope this also means the DOT will be a bit faster in their decisions .

Avolar = A5
MEX-LAX is only served by AM and MX from the Mexican side. No other Mexican airline can fly the route due to the US-MEX bilateral agreement. JR and 6A have flights to LAX from other mexican cities but not from MEX.

Quoting Wedgetail737 (Reply 21): I wonder if this will open the door to the newcomers slated to start service out of Mexico. Maybe the newcomers will change their business plan a bit to include international service.
It would be cool to see more mexican airlines flying here, including more cargo airlines such as Aero Union, Aeropostal de Mexico.. Im sure some of those start ups and existing airlines could start doing charters to places like MCO, FLL, TPA..
25 Airlineslover: Rojo: JR flies MEX-PVR-LAX (I think is flt 156 and 150 for MEX-ZLO-LAX) and 6A flies MEX-BJX-MTY-LAX 6A flt. 792/790
26 EddieDude: Yeah Victor, but those count only as PVR-LAX and MTY-LAX, respectively, for purposes of the bilateral. This is really surprising news. I must say I di
27 LACA773: Does anyone think AM will start LAX-CUN? It would be nice to see them increase their presence at LAX. MX seems to have them beat and I agree that the

30 Sebring: Canada and the US have open skies. No carrier, frequency or capacity restraints. Six US airlines and three Canadian carriers are flying the transbord
