In a recent article the Sacramento Bee, posted a article stating that Sacramento International Airport was building a third runway, expanding the International Building, and this was all due to forseen growth and International service.
At current the only International Serice to Sacramento is on Mexicana to Guadalajara, Mexico this service then continues to Mexico City, Mexico! The service is operated on a A319 and A320!
At current the largest passenger aircraft at Sacramento is the Hawaiian Airlines daily 767-300 nonstop to Honolulu!
At current the only Charter Service is to Kahalui/Maui on North American Airlines 757-200
At current other widebody services included Fed Ex DC-10 ops!
Of course there is the nonstop flow of Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines.
Alaska, Aloha, American, America West, Continental, Delta, Frontier, Horizon, Northwest, and Skywest offer daily service as well!
*It is rumored that JetBlue is looking at SMF-JFK or SMF-LGB*
What is the chance of American starting a SMF-JFK?
What is the chance of Continental starting a SMF-EWR?
What is the chance of Delta starting (they once were set and ready to go, but it was never inaugurated) a SMF-JFK? or SMF-CVG?
What is the chance of Northwest starting a SMF-DTW?
**Is the Sacramento County Airport commision avidly looking to pull in more international airlines, or international charters??
Air Canada to Vancouver??
Martinair to Amsterdam (now from Oakland)??
CorsAir to Paris and Papeete (now from Oakland)??
TACA to San Jose or Guatemala City??
