Viva México!

Local tourism officials have recently approached Mexican tourism partners to survey the possibilities of a strategic cooperation. Specifically, officials would like to measure the chances of non-stop flights between Mexico City and Aruba by a Mexican carrier.

Mexican flag carrier, Aeroméxico, recently held a survey among their travelers with the question which leisure Caribbean destination they would like to see Aeroméxico start flying to and Aruba came on top. Aruba is badly in need of a solid secondary market after current number two – Venezuela – has dropped dramatically the last few years, mostly due to internal issues in Venezuela.

If Aeroméxico decides to start flying to Aruba a few times a week, this route can become an interesting alternative for travelers flying from California to Aruba. This is certainly good news.

How do we convince American Airlines to give non-stop service from Dallas/Fort-Worth? It would open up quite a few more travel opportunities from places that have to connect into Dallas like an Oklahoma City. Currently, if an OKC traveler wanted to go to Aruba they would fly OKC to DFW… DFW to Miami… Miami into Aruba. There are quite a few people that go other places so they can skip the 3 connection flight!

I understand your frustration. The only flight we have coming from Texas is Continental from Houston. This is not a daily flight, thus not so attractive. I think American could fill a Boeing 737 on a constant basis from either Texas or California, but I think to make it viable they need to be able to fill a slightly bigger aircraft such as it currently does from Miami, New York and Boston (seasonal) with a Boeing 757. Even now when they don’t fill the aircraft enough they will scrap the flight and rebook everyone to another flight. Thanks for your comment Mark.
