Nice stats, but are the compared to what, 10 years ago??? The Colombian domestic market hasn´t grown so tremendously in a year.....really, if there were 80% more flights in BOG than last year, the aiport would have colapsed.

Hi Hardi,

interesting numbers!

Just one question (probably a stupid one...):

Quoting Hardiwv (Thread starter):
1. Rio-Sao Paulo 285.752 (-10%)



Quoting Hardiwv (Thread starter):
18. Sao Paulo-Rio de Janeiro 60.295 (-14%)



Quoting Hardiwv (Thread starter):
- Interesting that the leg Rio-Sao Paulo was far busier than the leg Sao Paulo-Rio de Janeiro

what happened to the 225.457 seats that didn't made the way back from Sao Paulo to Rio??? Did they all made direct flights from another place to Rio?  Confused  confused 

If anyone could clarify this for me...

Best regards,

The numbers are in terms of "seats" and the percentage in terms of more or less seats if compared to April 2006.

Fabrizio: I have the same questions, but these are the numbers. Rio-SP had more seat capacity in the month of April than SP-Rio!

If you want the full report send me your email and I can send it to you by private msg!

I can guarantee that the number are 100% reliable and released by the Latin American Air Transport Association, part of IATA system.

You forgot to add CUN to the top 10 airports for Mexico on the list. Mexico has four of the airports on the top 10 list. CUN, GDL, MEX and MTY.  Smile

CUN is no. 10 in my list - pls review my list again. Actually, I should have corrected my phrase: Mexico has 4 airports in the top 10 (CUN, GDL, MEX and MTY) while Brazil 5 (CWB, BSB, GIG, GRU, CGH).

Tks for the remark.

So Cuernavaca and Puebla can't be considered other México DF airports too?

I guess you could consider them alternate or secondary Mexico City airports given that they are not that far away. However, in my case, I would never consider flying out of PBC or CVJ. To get to PBC from the west side of the city (where I live and work), you need to cross the entire city, then take the Puebla highway (the eastern suburbs of the city through which you must drive in order to take the highway are very ugly) and then hope there is no traffic on the highway. For that matter, you are better off just going to MEX (which is in the east side of Mexico City). The taxi service that I use can take you from Santa Fe to MEX in 50 minutes even on paycheck Friday. With respect to CVJ, I also would find it complicated as I would need to cross the city to the south and then take the highway... almost always the traffic to go to the south side of the city is just crazy.

Considering that TLC is strategically close to the west side of the city, which is where most corporate headquarters are located and the wealthiest part of town, it works very well as Mexico City's number 2 airport.
Upcoming flights:
April/May: AM MEX-SCL 788 (J), AM EZE-MEX 789 (J).

I would not consider them as Mexico City's airports.

TLC, CVJ and PBC serve large metro areas on their own supporting their own traffic. Toluca is a metro area of over 1,2M people, Cuernavaca is 700,000 people and Puebla is slightly more than 2M people. They deserve an airport and are not exactly to be Mexico City's other airports.

Of course, those three along with QRO are part of a government initiative to decentralize MEX. In doing so, most of the people from QTO, TLC, CVJ and PBC, who in the past needed to go to MEX traveling up to 200kms, can fly from their own cities alleviating a little bit the large pressure of MEX. What I mean to say is that most people flying especially to CVJ, QRO and PBC are locals and not someone willing to get into Mexico City.

I guess no one would say that PHL is an airport serving NYC, despite it is almost the same distance as PBC is from Mexico City.

Well the Mexicans need some from Ryannair to teach them how to market airports 100Km from the destination as "The other (City) Airport".
Buveais Paris, Hahn Frankfurt, Deeze Dusselforf, Malmö Copenhagen, Skvasta Stockholm, Västeras Stockholm, Torp Oslo, Gerona Barcelona, Ciudad Real Madrid, Orio Sero Milan, Torino Milan... they all come to mind.
BTW, still VCP Campinas roughly 100Km from GRU was considered another São Paulo airport.
