Rumor Of Long-Haul International Service At TIJ

Fri Nov 18, 2005 4:22 am

I heard a person from TIJ airport talking about an announcement soon regarding intercontinental service from TIJ. Does anybody have the inside scoop about this announcement ? Airline and route ?

There have been some rumours of either JL or RG flying GRU-TIJ-NRT, although I for one didn't find these rumours credible.

MX is considering flying to China by 2007. There is no a/c able to fly MEX-NRT/PVG/PEK nonstop. It is said they have considered doing a tech stop over in TIJ. Also, there are lots of Asian firms in TIJ.

Next flight: IAH-DBX-MRU-ANT

MX finally realized they will not make a dime flying to Asia non-stop from Mexico, so plans are on hold indefinitely. Instead, they will sign a codeshare agreement with a Chinese airline to connect passengers through LAX, SFO and YVR.

Someone mentioned a while ago that under the Mexico-Canada bilateral, Mexican carriers have 5th freedom rights ex-YVR so I do not understand why MX does not consider the possibility of getting a couple widebodies and launch a MEX-YVR-PVG flight.
Upcoming S4 0221 LIS-PDL A310-300!!!
