Madrid, the top European market.

Thought London Gatwick might have been top in that regard

I believe the list up there refers to regular scheduled service while most of the European flights are charter services. Canada might apply the same situation.

Cancun is definitely an up-and-coming market, so the new runway is certainly needed. According to the latest ALTA statistics, CUN is the 4th busiest airport in Mexico, all flights, number 2 in Internationals and number 6 in domestics. It's the 2nd fastest growing in Mexico, all flights and numbers 1 and 2 respectively for International and domestic. In terms of fastest growing city pairs, CUN has 9 of the top 20 International pairings from Mexico and 3 of the top 20 domestically. ALTA's stats also concur completely with netjetsintl's 12 city rankings regarding scheduled operations.

Cancun is actually the second busiest in Mexico, 4th or 5th in all of Latin America and #1 in all of Latin America for international passengers......

Which one is the 1st fastest growing airport in Mexico???

CUN second busiest in Mexico...  checkmark 

I think it's the 5th... right after MEX, GRU, CGH, GIG... CUN.  checkmark 

But I believe, CUN might become the second biggest by 2013 and 1st in Mexico by 2016.

1st in terms of International passengers, I don't know how's in Latam, but as far as Mexico, it is second, CUN is moving from 5 to 7M all years whereas MEX moves over 10M.

I was in CUN two days ago.

According to a pilot i spoke to, the second runway will not open for another 6 months. They are having problems certifying the taxiway, apparently.

As for the number of passengers, 2009 is not looking too good. -13.4% compared to 2008 so far.

http://www.asur.com.mx/asur/ingles/a...ertos/cancun/trafico_pasajeros.asp

As for the busiest international routes from CUN in 2008

1. JFK
2. IAH
3. DFW
4. MIA
5. ATL
6. ORD
7. CLT
8. MAD
9. LAX
10. PHL
11. DEN
12. MSP
13. DTW
14. YUL
15. YYZ

To go from 12 million to over 26 million, in other words to more than double capacity within 6 years, highly unlikely ! Dont forget than MEX will be expanding during that timeframe as well.

That would mean that CUN would be expanding at a level comparable to DXB, which is not the case. First of all, CUN will see a huge decrease in traffic in '09. Just recuperating that will take a year or two. CUN will not overtake MEX for quite some time, if ever.

YUL is a busier route from CUN than YYZ, althought just barely. They hold 14th and 15th busiest intl routes out of CUN in 2008.

YYZ-MEX is a bigger market than YYZ-CUN.

Quoting NetJetsintl (Reply 2):

YUL, YYZ and MAD have more demand for CUN than LGW or MAN. Althought i am sure LGW is in the top 20-25 intl routes from CUN.

Correct, there is a lot more demand from Canada than the UK...... But I was referring to European markets, it seems to me the British market is larger than the Spanish

as far as the Canadian, yes it is huge.... when you see 4 or 5 Canadian registered airliners at a time, yeah its a huge market

It's very close to MEX, but yet, MEX moves more Intl traffic than CUN. But anytime CUN might go on top of MEX, it's not far from that.

The second runway just opened yesterday (21/Oct/09) for commercial operations. It's now open and active since 2PM LT.

A friend of mine was the first to land in an A319, Volaris flight 460.







There's nothing wrong with the runway.

Lets just sit and wait!! Fortunately, MX and AM are not longer government owned. Finally, they both have a free administration in search of profits and as very recently AM and MX have finally decided to do new things and open new markets in the last 36 months (mainly in the long haul aspect), MX is the first to have a true commitment in Cancún since Taesa's departure. MX is to base CRJ's, 717s and Buses to be flown out of CUN and maybe, it will be the start of more to come in order to increase profits and try to gain part of that big cake.

Take a look at AM in Asia and South America as well as Europe. AM is doing nicely compared to those days when CINTRA owned it and we only had 5 B767s and a few cheesy routes and frequencies.

Mexicana is not the only mexican carrier interested in CUN. There's another carrier VERY interested in opening a hub ASAP, maybe they'll do it so next year. If you want a clue, it flies buses and has a dark tail.

There's another mexican carrier based in the north with balloons on the tail, they also want to do more out of CUN.

Aeromexico has also a plan for AM Travel in CUN.

Almost all intl traffic is taken by international carriers, many mexican airlines will start putting an extra effort in CUN.

Ahh wow...nice pictures. .So much for the accuracy of the statement that pilot gave me! I think he was flying for MexicanaLink. Anyhow, nice to see the runway open. As for CUN becoming a hub for Mexican airlines, it more than likely will happen, kind of like AB at PMI. Though you wont see too many Mexican airlines starting transatlantic service from CUN, as it is a pretty low yielding VFR market. Maybe an eventual tag on MEX-CUN-LGW 2 or 3x a week, but its doubtful.

I was just wondering how Delta didn't make the top 3, yet American and Continental did?

I just checked AA's website and only saw a typical array of flights to the hubs. Whereas I know Delta and now Northwest fly from all over the place to CUN. It is almost a mini hub for them. And it isn't like DL is sending RJs they are usually M80s through 767s to CUN.

I feel like I am missing something.

during the peak season, on busy days, Continental operates 8 or 9 737-800 flights out of IAH, plus the 2 EWR 757 flights and the CLE flight.

Yeah and on peak days I have seen delta operate flights to something like 10 destinations with an MD-88 or larger, not to mention the 6-7 flights to ATL on 757/767s.
