Recently I've been hearing a lot speculation about AM's plans to move their Hermosillo Hub to Culiacan (CUL) due to HMO's lack of space and facilities to handle additional traffic. Is there any truth to this rumor? I don't think CUL is very well positioned geographically speaking as to become AM's Mexican Northwest hub. Last week, government officials had a reunion with GAP (Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico, the airport's owners) and all the airlines that fly into HMO and discussed the airport's expansion plans among other things. Representatives for UPS also were in hand to discuss the possibility of operating a Handling center from HMO. I also took a look at AM's schedule and they have been making a lot of changes here at HMO. Does anyone have additional information about this?
