Re: Central American Aviation Thread - 2019

You think TAG will jump into the potential void left by the departure of AV from so many GUA routes? They would be dumb not to do it as well as jumping into the GUA-TGU route (they only fly GUA-SAP at the moment). It would also be a growth opportunity for AeroRuta Maya but they may have it a bit mo...

Re: Central American Aviation Thread - 2019

According to someone inside GU (take it with a grain of salt), AV is already laying off the majority of the ATR pilots and it’s quite possible that FRS will be axed once all ATRs are gone. Right. They are going to ax a duopoly route...? Well it makes sense that they would ax FRS; it's not like they...

Actually, after GUA - FRS (53), GUA - MEX is the city pair with the most flights (48) from GUA; way more that to Central American destinations. The reason AV (at that time TA) stopped the flight was due to the consolidation of the SAL hub; and with their exit, as well as the demise of MX, other airl...
