Great addition. Let’s see what the rest of the year brings for the Central American market and Volaris.

LP LIM-SJO hasn't returned yet to Central America and Volaris is rapidly taking that place.

LIM-SJO does hace O/D traffic demand for thrice weekly, however, for daily, Volaris will surely need connecting traffic @ SJO..

The connectivity of Volaris Costa Rica is quite limited at SJO.
Prior to March 2020, LATAM did operate LP LIM-SJO 3x weekly as well, with 319/320 mix.
I did a quick check and both AV SJO-LIM and LP LIM-SJO are in service at this time, meaning three competitors in such market soon.

Alaska has been steadily operating in Costa Rica, since late 2020 as AS LAX-LIR-SJO.
Their non-stop flights will return in June and following a red-eye pattern, into the northbound sector.
With respect to the [Lima - San Jose] market, AV SJO-LIM activated again their flights as 1x weekly, in January 2022.
LP LIM-SJO recently came back to Costa Rica and Volaris will also fly the same route from June.
Here's the reaction of AV SJO-LIM as 7x weekly soon.

Copa Airlines has recently opted for the inauguration of new stations in South America:

June 28: Panama City - Santa Marta, 3x weekly
June 30: Panama City - Barcelona, 3x weekly.

They would follow this idea, over the resumption of some destinations that are not available since March 2020: Port au Prince, Barbados, Holguin, Santiago de los Caballeros, Salta, New Orleans, Puerto Vallarta, Recife, Salvador de Bahia and Liberia.

Non Stop flight, those are local times. Ehe east coast of Mexico is 1 hour ahead of Guatemala City.

No GUA and MID are in Same time zone. Only Qroo is in different time zone. MID is in Yucatan state.

Maybe TAG doesn’t know this.

So something is wrong with the schedule.

Correct. Mexico Daylight Saving Time starts always on the first Sunday of April, so right now Merida and Guatemala have the same time, but on April Merida will be one hour ahead.

If I recall correctly, when Guatemala City was a base for Pan Am back in the 70s, MID used to be a layover for their flights heading to Chicago.
I couldn't validate this sentence with official sources.

IMHO, if CM would want to complement its flights offer to Mexico City, TLC region has a more wealthier passenger base than NLU, it'll be to TLC; 2-3 days per week, at times which require an extra frame to/from MEX.
However, nobody knows how much the Mexican government will woo (not to write 'force') CM to offer some kind of service to NLU.

Great news. I’m excited to look at the livery and how they deploy the aircraft.

I also wonder if this means the retirement of some Saabs, which the article wasn’t specific on.

Condor Flugdienst never returned to Central America.
DE FRA-PTY had left their services prior to March 2020 and DE FRA-SJO is not in the radar again. These flights stopped in Dominican Republic.
LH FRA-PTY and LH FRA-SJO are the only choices for this market.
Check the new paint-scheme announced on Condor.

LACSA also stopped at SAP sometimes, in their flights to MEX.
COPA during the 727-200 era, also flew PTY-SAP-MEX.

AM 2697....XPL 11.05....14.35 MEX....Tu, Th, Sa....E90
Effective: April 07th

As far as I know, TGU didn't have non-stop flights bound for MEX.


Great for Tegucigalpa. Confirming there where no flights to TGU from MEX
The new airport has bring more flights to Tegucigalpa.

Back in the 1970's TAN Airlines (TX) operated non stop service TGU-MEX-TGU on Lockheed L-188 Electra flights TX370/TX371 same days as AM nowdays: TUE/THU/SAT.

After the merger with SAHSA (SH) this fight operated until early 90s as a nonstop MEXTGU only in 737-200. TGUSAPMEXTGU was the route. This flight was renumbered as TX970/971, then SH970/971 I believed, not sure. TAN/SAHSA entered into default leaving unpaid bills and decided to close MEX station before the airline shutdown in 1994.

Fantastic !
TX TGU-MEX in the 70s with Electra planes !
These route maps also showed TGU-ADZ-PTY, many years ago
TACA, SAHSA and LACSA utilized turbo-prop airplanes as cargo services, in the 70s and 80s.
During their early years, they transported passengers and then refurbished to cargo planes.
COPA also utilized turbo-props and jumped to the 737-200s in the early 80s, if I recall correctly.

Copa Airlines has recently opted for the inauguration of new stations in South America:

June 28: Panama City - Santa Marta, 3x weekly
June 30: Panama City - Barcelona, 3x weekly.

They would follow this idea, over the resumption of some destinations that are not available since March 2020: Port au Prince, Barbados, Holguin, Santiago de los Caballeros, Salta, New Orleans, Puerto Vallarta, Recife, Salvador de Bahia and Liberia.

Wish they would hurry up and finish T2. Sooo much nicer than T1. Then they could start remodeling T1 (?).

Well, Tocumen's T2 is actually open, but only on the airside. Right now, they're opening other sections, but in a slower and gradual pace, because of a legal dispute against the construction contractor due to breach of contract as far as I know. And regarding T1, they're just upgrading the air conditioning system in some areas.
