Aces will stop non-stop service between Miami and Cali just in time for the summer. Service will be daily using an A320 aircraft. American Airlines has been the only airline on the route non-stop after Avianca combined Cali with Barranquilla after 9.11. However, with AA moving thier BAQ operations to nearby MDE this summer, Avianca's MIA-BAQ flight will no longer continue to CLO and Aces will fill the gap. The mountain city of Cali is the third largest in Colombia, and it's nice to see Aces filling in the gap that future partner(?) Avianca left.

Thomasphoto60, I believe the reason is that most of IAH's South America traffic is probably FROM Houston, so fliers are very likely to fly Continental rather than Avianca, Aces, etc. Whereareas MIA/JFK/LAX traffic is more equal in both directions.
