No none to Canada. Vancouver has been thrown around as a possibility, but I think it's probably at least 5 years away, if not more. Horizon, Air Canada????? I think the flights from Canada to SJC will be restored first, in terms of California destinations.

Air Canada already flew into ONT with A320's (I believe), but, that didnt last long. Would it last in Sacramento?

SMF just celebrated its 35th anniversary. Media coverage included the following:
From the Sacramento Bee:
"Acree and his staff are lobbying carriers for direct flights to John F. Kennedy International in New York City, Baltimore-Washington International, Washington Dulles International in the nation's capital and Vancouver International in Canada. The latter service would not necessarily come from a foreign carrier. "We think it's important to have foreign-flag carriers such as Air Canada, which serves Vancouver," he said. "But we're not ruling out a domestic carrier such as Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air," two airlines that already serve Sacramento."

""We wouldn't be surprised within a year or two to see a beach or a resort destination in Mexico," added Acree."

Also, from the Sacramento Business Journal:
"Mexicana Airlines, which this summer brought Sacramento International Airport its first foreign route, will add two flights per week by December, giving local travelers a daily connection to Guadalajara and Mexico City. "

"In its first month of local service, Mexicana pulled down average load factors — a measure of passenger capacity filled for each jet — of 89 percent. Sixty to 70 percent average load factors are considered profitable. For the full summer, the load factors still averaged "80-plus percent," Barba said."

Sacramento is the perfect airport to use CRJ-700's, or small aircraft as such for flights to Canada. I am honestly very surprised that Horizon hasn't started flights already...maybe when they receive more CRJ-700's?

Delta was supposed to start SMF-JFK flights I believe last Christmas, maybe this year...but that was axed soon after the 11th, as was the daily UA A319/A320 to IAD.

There was also some talk about an upstart airline flying with I believe CRJ-700's or CRJ-900's (Maybe EMB-190/ 728Jet?...not sure) from Sacramento to points throughout the country, including flights to New York, Washington DC, Miami, etc. Even talk about 737-700 flights from SMF through New York and Washington DC to London and Paris, respectively.

When I was there on Monday, there was a Hawaiian 767-300 departing for HNL. That's not international, but it's certainly long distance... and a kinda... prestigious route I would think for little SMF.
Incidentally, the terminal American operates out of is not real nice. It's better than the old terminals at IAH, but it's small (which is fine) yet unrefined and only one place to buy food... you can see the planes well, though, so that's a plus.

Delta canceled SMF-JFK (and SJC-JFK) in July 2001, not as a result of 9.11.
