They could potentially steal traffic from AA, LATAM and AV. Copa Airlines has indeed demonstrated how some secondary cities like Chiclayo may work profitably into its network. In my view, CM PTY-MEC makes a resemblance to CM PTY-CIX as pointing out above. On the contrary, some segments like LP LIM-...Jump to post
Volaris El Salvador had announced N3 SAL-OAK and N3 SAL-IAH for March 26.
It's going to be interesting to see how long MEC sticks around, considering the only other flights at the moment are to UIO. It's probably not orientated towards JFK travellers. It's like asking how CM PTY-CIX 2x weekly is loading passengers, taking into account that CIX-LIM is the sole commercial ...Jump to post
AV announced in December 2021 that it successfully completed its financial restructuring process and emerged from Chapter 11 of the US bankruptcy code. Like many airlines worldwide, after the devastating impact of covid-19, they're slowly trying to return to a profitable venture again. It won't be e...Jump to post
AV is competing with Volaris which offers the same service. I didn't get this statement clearly. For the case of San Salvador, N3 Volaris El Salvador is offering some limited routes where AV used to fly at this time: New York JFK, Washington and Los Angeles. N3 had announced Ontario and Houston for...Jump to post
As previously commented in the Central American aviation thread, CM PTY-BWI may work as back-up for CM PTY-IAD which is operating as 2-3x daily nowadays.

CM PTY-IAD is 18x weekly at this time and CM PTY-BWI may work as back-up for the D.C. area. I can almost remember 15 years ago, when CM PTY-IAD was 5x weekly or less. Some people had thought that such route didn't last too much in service... With respect to the new services in Ecuador, CM PTY-UIO 4x...Jump to post
before the pandemic, flew MGA and SJO twice daily. Yes, prior to March 2020 they had routes focusing basically in the O&D market from both Guatemala and Costa Rica: CM GUA-MGA-GUA and CM SJO-MGA-SJO. I can't remember for sure if CM GUA-SJO-GUA was in service before. The point is that none of th...Jump to post

CM seems to have maxed out T1 and T2 already. How did they ever manage just with T1? Based on my own point of view: I stayed the earlier days of January 2023 at PTY and I didn't experience any trouble, in both ways. The terminal T2 looks massive and featuring a high level of service. This was actua...Jump to post
Happy new year to everyone on this board ! What have we seen in 2022, in terms of the regional civil aviation ?

Does anyone think Copa or Avianca could fly from TIJ with the new international building opening? I wouldn't believe so.

TK has succeeded in PTY where EK failed. It's a good point. EK DXB-PTY never started in 2016 and TK has demonstrated how an airline can work successfully, in such geographical area.
