I believe I read here on a.net that Colombia has a very restrictive air service treaty with the United States, limiting the airports and frequencies of U.S. carriers - is that still the case?
A revised bilateral took place in January 1st of the present year, though it hasn't been officially published.
Anyhow, Cartagena ranks among the special tourist destinations in Colombia which allow ilimited international service, regardless of the bilateral terms with the country involved.
As for the service, it sounds too good to be truth, though to some extent, it is fesible, as long as it's seasonal. CTG can barely support 2 weekly nonstops to MIA
provided by AV
off-season; though, however, the service increases to 5x weekly or daily in high-season when the flight does fine.
PEI? They already have a daily 1-stop flight to MIA
, though changing planes in BOG
is in order. The PEI-BOG
segments is operated on a MD
-83, and the BOG
leg as the usual daily 763. Both flights, however, operate under one code: AV0006.
