It is so interesting that lately CO
and COexpress are opening or will open routes based on the oil industry. Since BFL
got that big grant to lure CO
, and now this little city in Mexico is getting service. CO
already has service to other purely industrial locations in Mexico. I've heard Merida is like that. Never been there though.
Many, many, many years ago CO
flew to Maracaibo Venezuela. Wonder if they'll be going back.
I think it is only a matter of time before CO
starts serving some middle eastern oil "crude destinations." Maybe they would do the old TWA route to CAI and Riyadh or something similar. Kuwait City maybe, maybe? Kuwait goes nonstop to JFK
a couple times a week in addition to their flights via LHR
I've heard they're interested in Dubai. Even though will codeshare with Emirates, they still compete with carriers they codeshare with. Witness KLM and CO
competing on the IAH
