Very interesting post, indeed! Thanks for all the information you provided.
I believe AA is testing the waters here, they are in an agreement with Uair to connect passengers to Rosario and Cordoba same as Iberia is doing
Agree with you, but first we have to see whether UAIR will really fly, because recent indicators are not so good, such as load factor (about 45%?). Also, UAIR is partially owned by TAM. What is the interest of TAM in the Uruguayan market? Maybe to enlarge the range of ASU
-based TAM Mercosur? Or maybe to enter the Uruguayan market before the Brazilian GOL does so, as GOL CEO Mr. Constantino announced last week? MVD will be one of GOL's new destinations in 2005.
A brand new building is going to be built
Indeed, and the master plan is available in Carrasco webpage! I think transforming MVD into a regional hub could be a good way, and there are plenty of models to be followed: Dubai, Singapore, Amsterdam are successful examples. The fact that MVD is squeezed between EZE
(AR) and GRU
) is a formidable challenge.
Open Skies agreement was signed you can go to the American embassy Uruguay website and get the jest of the agreement, I agree it benefits Uruguay but only after they get upgraded to CATI.
Completely agree with you. But after the open skies agreement, there is no doubt that the US will upgrade Uruguay to CAT-I, in my point of view. Of course, first the US will allow for its carriers to dominate the MVD market, as AA
RG is ready to sell PU as a matter of fact there is a letter of intent signed and the buyer is a British firm Ashmore Funds
Indeed, there were some initial converations between RG
, and afterwards between RG
, the latter still continuing. RG
is certainly not interested to see AR
dominate the traffic in MVD. It will be a difficult solution. I will look for further information about this British Firm, something which is new for me.
and I will continue reading your posts
And we hope you continue to contribute with our forum! Your first contribution was excellent!
