Acording to press reports they will start operations at Oro Negro ("black gold") airport near Cabimas on the Eastern shores of Maracaibo Lake.
The area has about 800.000 inhabitants in the cities of Cabimas, Lagunillas, Ciudad Ojeda and others. It is a very busy Oil area.
Avior stopped operations in July 2002 at that airport. But now - of course - they want to restart.
The airport authorities are also planning to extend the runway in order to be able to welcome bigger planes.
KavoK intends to start with Jetstream, Beach 1900 and/or Embraer (I guess 120).
The intention to start CBS is very good, as the travel time from there to MAR airport is around 1 hour. And the market is there.
