I've been waiting years for this airport to open and it looks like the runway is close to completion. These pics were posted back in August 2007 so I imagine they're farther along by now.

There are some older pics from Feb 07 at the bottom of the page.

Good news for people from Arizona and New Mexico! Any word on commercial service? I'd imagine US (Mesa) to be the likeliest airline to serve Puerto Peñasco if this airport is capable.

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

I emailed US about their plans for PPE, and they responded with the usual corporate vagueness. They're waiting to measure demand and the airports infrastructure. I guess the good news is that they are watching. If demand is hot, US could put a 737 sized plane on the route. Thats the largest aircraft this runway will support.

Most likely we'll see RJ service to start.

If I am correct, they've had commercial service for a while now. Aeromexico Connect was operating a EMB145 from LAX and I think it then went to/from HMO or MRY. Flight operated three times a week, I think TUES/THURS/SUN and last time I checked fares from LAX were quite high. When I was checking was beginning of year cuz friends from L.A had seen small clips in the travel section and we planned a trip if I drove down from AZ and they flew in from L.A, but we couldn't find fares lower then the mid $300 range for a L.A r/t. More I searched and I found articles stating how first few weeks found flights running in the 80-90% range for the flight that went to their Mexican destination, and L.A. load factors were running about 50-60%, nothing said though how much of that was revenue vs. nonrev pax.
