Re: Volaris cancels ABQ-CUU Flights

I wonder if there are big markets for these routes within Mexico (operated by Volaris or Viva): – CJS - TRC – TRC - BJX – CUU - BJX – GDL - MZT – CJS - QRO Also I think Volaris should fly into Piedras Negras from Guadalajara. Last year I flew in TAR from CJS to QRO but with a stop in TRC, and on th...

Re: Volaris cancels ABQ-CUU Flights

that's always been the problem with ELP-MEX; there's Juarez just across the border. Unless they come up with a way to do a land bridge, a la SAN and TIJ, it probably won't work. I think there's been some commuter transborder flights out of ELP over the years, but it has been a very very long time s...

Re: Volaris cancels ABQ-CUU Flights

Talking about the CJS Airport, work to expand the airport has begun. Terminal is very tiny and obsolete so they are going to expand it, I believe more jet-bridges will be added. I was also told the tarmac will be extended as well as a taxi parallel to the runway and perhaps extending the runway a li...

I'm not exactly sure "go to Hell" was a part of the discussion. Clearly, there was an initial agreement for subsidies to start the route in the first place, but that amount isn't mentioned. I'll add that isn't clear Volaris was looking for 2 x $32,000, very possibly 1 x $32,000. More sign...

Volaris cancels Albuquerque-Chihuahua Flights because Volaris wanted both cities to pay $32,000 USD per round trip. Both cities told Volaris to go to Hell.
