A good article on air service to Roatan, in the Bay Islands of Honduras. Given that CO now serves the airline from IAH, AA and US (per below) are looking at stating service, things are (finally) looking up for more air service to Roatan.
Once a major United States airline is attracted to a new destination, other major airlines don't tend to ignore that fact. Such is the case with Roatan. Interest by other airlines has increased, following the February announcement by Continental Airlines to fly nonstop between Houston and Roatan starting June 12. Two months following the announcement, representatives from two of the six largest US airlines set foot on Roatan to begin exploring the viability of flying to the island.
Just because representatives of US Airways and American Airlines have gone to the length of coming to Roatan in April doesn't mean the two major airlines will automatically select the island as a new destination.
