I'm glad someone is finally using some imagination re: liveries in Mexico. And I am also glade the choice was the all-too beautiful A319 . Adding to Mexicana and interjet fleets... Maybe Airbus should think of establishing a regional maintenance center in Mexico!

Quoting FLY2HMO (Reply 1): BTW, wasn't MX going to get their A330 by around this time?
Well, sadly, we still don't know much on this matter!!! But yesterday there was again a confirmation from MX of it's Asia plans for 2007. They will heat and generate demand route thru codeshares with Chinese carriers via LAX and YVR but for mid 2007 MX will fly it's own frames via TIJ, they said they were studying both Boeing and Airbus.... they said they wanted to reinforce EZE and now that MX is part of Posadas I think we will see SCL, GRU and GIG sometime later... I'm sure we will have a mix of A330s/A340-500s or 600s... otherwise a B787/777 mix... but I'm not holding my breath....

IIRC, InterJet will built two big hangars @ TLC for them and third parties OTOH, Vuela has also clear plans to establish a big MX center in TLC.

Talking about Interjet... Im flying next Friday from CUN to TLC... The problem now is that all ready start the flight but the three days was a delete of 3 hours... Suppose to leave 12.40 and its leaving 15.40... Its bad... Also they have a big trouble in CUN because don't have office and front desk at the airport... When I pay my ticket about 45 minutes after I get there... They give me a paper with hand righting of the flight, they don't give me any receive or ticket... Any way... The fact its that I really want to fly on those new planes and land for first time in a commercial flight on TLC...
Lets see what happens and hope to take some good pictures of the plane.

Hi Ghost and everyone. I m back ,now that TLC and Intrjet are big News.
Do you know where exactly they are going to be build?
It seems that Interjet "nestle" will be inside the OAG lands. May be not far from FedEx facility. The terminal enlargement will be in the opposite direction, and what about the new Control tower? Is it the only remaining building from the original plan for the New terminal @ TLC.
And finally , do you know what s the future of SACSA and AZTECA facilities?

Click is already flying between TLC and CUN/HAV. They wanted to challege Interjet, so they started operations this week. I was in TLC on tuesday night and Click has its check in desk ready (using the same as NM and CO).
Maybe these news will force Aviacsa and Azteca to order more 737s and expand....
Yes, GOLMex is slowly getting ready too!!! 6A, there's no news, but I really hope to see from them something soon!! They urgently need 757s as 727s replacements and a few B733/5s!!! As for ZE, I think their financial position will force them to keep seeking for B737NGs in the SH market, otherwise I see them continuing expanding with B733s... and once again there's rumors around for the introduction of 2 B757s....
Quoting Anxebla (Reply 11): Its a good way to start: choosing an airliner from the A320 family
Indeed great way to start... but more than saying it was their choice and a smart decision based on costs, it's clearly visible it totally was a biased decision.... Boeing years ago not only lost TA, they also lost this new order from what it will become a giant in Mexican aviation. With Slim and Azcárraga back-up... enough said... 16 frames it's only the beginning of more...
Quoting PVD757 (Reply 13): Is one of these Mexican start-ups connected to TACA in some way???
Yes, Vuela is the one connected to TA.

I just read that article on "Gol Mexico" being officially launched. They are going to be based at TLC too?? How many airlines can TLC hold? The airport will need a new terminal to be able to handle all of these flights. Three new start ups in the same airport in Mexico, sounds very interesting.

It was just a matter of time... TLC is closer (transit time-wise) to the most affluent neighborhoods of Mexico City and its suburbs than MEX, plus Toluca itself an a number of fast growing cities within one-to-two hours driving range. With the longest runway in Latin America [13780 × 148 ft (4200 × 45 m)] and equipped with CAT III(b) (very soon), TLC is a good choice. It's only downside is its elevation: 8466 ft (2580 m), which imposes important lift restrictions. Regardless, MEX is not much lower, laying at a statute elevation of 7316 ft (2230 m). Lift restrictions are not much much better...
I agree with Mexicana757: TLC will definitely need a new terminal building...

TLC needs investment even without any expansion, its terminal looks in bad shape. I've read several articles about groups investing in TLC airport. One article said $25 mil USD from somewhere, other article said $175 million USD from somewhere else. Here's the latest which says $92 million from EdoMex and the Government.

Quoting Anthsaun (Reply 20): If the starters want to succeed in TLC they must really work on keeping the parking fare low in order for a traveler to drive over there instead of taking an expensive, tinny and low-speed cab.
Quoting CessnaLady (Reply 23): I hear it's MXP$5 an hour / MXP$70 per day (US$0.47 / US$6.50)... A bargain, compared to MEX.
I was there on tuesday. I took my brother to his NM flight TLC-MAD. Parking fee was MXP$10 for unlimited time. I even asked the cashier about the parking fee for more than 24 hours and she told me that it would be the same MXP$10. Although if I stayed more than 2 days, I would have to speak to the manager...
