CM Gets 3 New Aircrafts / 1 Flightsimulator

Thu Jun 08, 2006 8:06 am

This month CM gets 3 new aircrafts (link in English) and A B737 flight simulator (this one is in Spanish).
The planes will be used for their new routes to STI, MAO, SAP, MAR, MVD and later to POS.
The Flightsimulator located at Panama City Ciudad del Saber just in front of the Panama Canal, is a rental and hopefully will be used too by other latinamerican airlines with B737 on their fleets.

I also heard that plans to establish the 3rd bank of flights are going ahead.

I won't think CM is talking about a night-hub operation.

No, it would be another day-hub.

Does anyone think and/or believe that they could be a potential 737-900ER customer?

Some routes to Colombia could use a 900, AV sometimes do PTY with a 767, on the other hand I believe that CM strategy would be together with P5 to fragment the market offering more frequencies and destinations thus giving a more convenient product.

There are days I wish CM had one B737-900 to use for the extra demmand specially on their flights to MIA, MEX, HAV, SDQ and BOG.
IMHO Having at least 1 B737-900ER, 1 B737-600 (!) and 1 E170 would give CM fleet a much appreciated flexiblity.
