Again I must remind you all that currently there's not a single Pollo Campero restaurant in Panamá. Don't know if there're in Belize.
Maybe Campero will be back someday @ the Grupo Poma partly owned Multiplaza Pacific Shopping Centre in the other 1-2 shopping centres they might be developing here in Panama City.

Back to aviation guys....
The DL CRL ROn flight has been coming in LATE, the last few weeks.....the ariport had to stay open an extra three hours to accomodate them on Sat. It did come in pretty full though so not all is bad.

If you see how I wrote the highlights I wrote them per country!

however, MOST threads seemd to be about pollo campero, hence why I said All of Central America because after all we are ALL central americans and the most frequent comments on the C-A av thread were about Pollo Campero!
It was a humourous mention

I really am proud that we have kept this Central American Thread going for so long. Let try to keep focused here.. Let me offer a topic for discussion..

Where do you guys think what other cities new airports might be need in the region.. Maybe 5-10 years down the road?

Id like to suggest a regional airport in the Golfo de Fonseca area of El Salvador. The area is getting a huge new port and is booming, so faster links to the El Salvador main airport (cargo, businesspeople) might be beneficial.

The trip currently takes 2hrs or so. Worth a 20 min flight? maybe not... Maybe a rail link would be the answer..

Anyway that is stretching it - but alas, with such a small country...

You have a good idea, but I am sure that due to recurrent earthquakes in the region is a bit fragile to have a rail link. Plus there doesn t seem to be any tradition for railway travel in Central america (at least in Costa Rica this form of transport has practically disappeared). A railway link would be the good solution but I wonder if there is incentive or money to make that possible. Imagine, a high speed railway link across Central America and flights such as SAL-GUA would become as useless as CDG-BRU flights for O/D tafic .. but we can dream on !

Yea.. i can see tha happening in the next 50 years. If it would happen it would be between GUA and SAL firts due to the simboitic relationship the 2 countries have.

Intersting facts:

-Salvadorean tourists represent a total of more than 35% of total number of tourist in Guatemala. Also, Salvadorean tourist spend much more on a daily basis in Guatemala than European and North American backpackers.

- SAL-GUA border crossings are the busiest in the region

- 65% ( it think) of all intra-central american trade happens between GUA and SAL.

In other news, an Atlas Air 747-200 freighter (N540MC, serial 22508) landed at LIR yesterday morning -largest aircraft ever at Liberia- with some unusual and pretty interesting cargo... the newest residents of the Africa Mía Natural Reserve Park, located near the town of Bagaces, in Guanacaste province.

Most notably among the wildlife on board the flight from MIA: six giraffes, two zebras, four watusi cattle, two camels, and several antelopes (including orix gazelle, giant eland, greater kudu and bongos) all brought in from sub-Saharan Africa.

Quite sadly, one of the young giraffes succumbed to cardiac arrest shortly after arrival at the park, presumably as a result of the highly stressful journey... and perhaps even a bit of rough handling.

well I think TGU needs a new airport(LOCATION), being the capital of honduras, I think that they can find a place better suited for an airport, if you see the airport chart/approach chart, has restricted areas all around it because of mountains. Also the airport is closed many days out of a year because of bad weather, what do u think? can it happen?

Another airport that needs fixing is Bocas Del Toro in Panama, Bocas is becoming on of the first places where tourist want to go, by car is really difficult(been there done that) the road from David to Bocas is thru the Cordillera, it is a fun drive, exciting sceneries, but if I have to go again to Bocas, I think is not going to be by car. I think the RWY needs to be resurfaced and taken care of.

just my 2 cents.

The current government is investing in improving the conditions of several airstrips across the country, building passenger terminals, etc., to upgrade them to the category of "airports".

Guatemala To Get New Airports (by Carmenlu15 Jul 7 2006 in Civil Aviation)

I think Guatemala could use a more extensive domestic network. Due to its topography and road conditions, many road trips take 4+ hours... imagine doing that same trip by air in less than 60 minutes.  Smile For instance, my father has customers in Quetzaltenango, and it's usual for him to make daytrips to take care of the business there. He ends up spending more time on the road than at his destination...

It would also have positive implications in the tourism industry, especially with the increasing cruise ship visits. Passengers could easily make a day trip from Puerto Barrios to Tikal or Antigua... and by showing them the best of our country, we get them to visit again for a longer stay.  Smile

Quoting Mt99 (Reply 8):
If it would happen it would be between GUA and SAL firts due to the simboitic relationship the 2 countries have.

IMO, it would increase even more the traffic between the two countries. The current road is in good condition, but let's just say the trip is not exactly safe.  Sad And the flight, in addition to being a bit on the expensive side, takes up almost as much time as the trip by car, taking into account the time you spend at the airport before departure, the time to clear customs, the distance between SAL and the city, etc. ...

Just see Google maps and you'll notice how close XPL is from TGU. As I been saying for quite a long time, Tegucigalpa already has an extra airport, it's up to the Hondureños to make the road to XPL 4 lane (the Hondurean people will be ever grateful) and build an international terminal at the far south end of XPL very far from the military installations. Current TGU Toncontín could remain in use exclusively for GA and commercial aircraft of less than 20 passengers, something like Pavas SYQ in San José or Ilopango MSSS in San Salvador.

Which of the roads between GUA and SAL isn't the one exactly safe? There's the Panamericana and there's a shorter one, not for trucks. I believe that one day one of those roads between SAL and GUA will be 4 lane and that day GUA and SAL will be competitors.

In reality non of the roads are "safe" There was a huge debacle a few years back regarding travel between both countries. Sal tourists would be assaulted in Guatemala. It came to the point that a group of salvadoreans that had been assaulted took out billboards on the way to the border alterting drivers not to cross due to the risk. Salvadorean authorities demanded better protection on the roads.. sheesh!..

(I am going to take middle ground here and say that, in part it was media-fueled.)

And if you havent seen the news latlely, 3 Salvadorean represntatives to the Central American Parliament were recenty abducted, tourtured and pretty much burnt inside their car.

The panamericana on SAL side is already 4 lane from the border to San Salvador. Maybe Carmen can verify that it is the case in Guatemalan side. Id be surprised it is not. I have used the Southern route more often lately - that is a 2 lane on both side pretty much until you hit that awsome toll road into Guatemala city (great volcano views)!. and of course the Sarita restaurant...

Don't give other Centralamericans ideas on what to do with their diputados if they're angry with them.

Regarding the roads between SAL and GUA, I would usually stay in SAL and if I've business in GUA I would drive for the day there and back to SAL in the mid afternoon. Since it's a kind of an open border between Guatemala and El Salvador, the amount of cars with Salvadorean license plates now in Guatemala City is astonishing.
