We'll see if this actually happens...service to FLL is also apparently planned. MSY-BZE used to be served by TA back in the day before those flights were switched to MSY-SAP.

Be nice but what equipment would they use?


The good old days: Delta L-1011s at MSY

In one of the other articles I found online it said a leased 737.

Having been to San Pedro, I can imagine that the runway can handle a 737. I don't believe a 737 could even turn around at the end of the runway without use of a tug.

Aviateca used to fly MSY-GUA on 727s. Also SAHSA flew to San Pedro Sula from MSY and 737-200s. MSY was once a gateways for a lot of Central American flying. This might have had to do with the range of the planes the Central American airlines had in service. I liked seeing the Sahsa blue and white planes with the big stars at the gate.
I wish this new service well.

Air Florida also flew 737s into San Pedro Sula as well.

I cannot imagine doing this in a Caravan, or a Twin Otter.

Also lacking: customs facilities.

I could imagine (as a foolish business decision) Maya flying to BZE from US points. Not destined to succeed, I think, but one never knows, do one?



...three miles from BRONS, clear for the ILS one five approach...

I was flew into and out of San Pedro, Belize, last January. The flights were on a Cessna 208. There would be simply no room on that strip for a 737 of any variety!

You're are all right.....this is jsut gossip. MW is in serious financial trouble right now. Their BZE-CUN/GUA/SAP service is bleeding money (2 of the 3 ATRS were "taken back"), the domestic service is being hammered by PM (I think MW only controls about 30% of the overall market now), and the principals of the company are up to their necks with the bank.

IMHO, this is just a publicity stunt ill-conceived to see if there are any interested buyers for the company. Anyone who has ever sold a company , will tell you that if you can make it look like it is growing, you get more interest.

Not to mention, the owners of MW have a lot of family in FLL and MSY, so they would be able to use it!

Regardless, service was planned for MSY-BZE ...not MSY-SPR>.

It can't.

I won't succeed or happen IMHO

Yes



When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.
