As an example, many airlines fly to TPE without the need of diplomatic relations with the island of Taiwan and flying to TPE doesn't greatly affect their status in China. In the hypothetical event that QR and/or EK would apply to fly to TLV, without any diplomatic relations with Israel, IMHO, Israel...Jump to post

Panama Tourist Authority is trying to woo Viva to fly to ONX. Does Colón ONX really provide proper conditions to attend this commercial flight ?

The reason why Viva is leaving Panama, is that with the opening of Viva Air Peru, they need the capacity for the flights within Colombia and in Peru.

If ANC still is the only U.S. airport where TWOV is allowed, that would entice an Asian Star Alliance airline, to use it as stop en-route to PTY or BOG.

Could AR succeed from cities such as ROS and MDZ flying to MIA? Not sure; CM, LA and AV seem to do a good job from such markets.

BOS for SK makes more sense as a seasonal destination.
For Scandinavians, BOS is neither a year-around destination (like MIA) nor an Star Alliance hub for connections (like all the other SK USA destinations).
IMHO, SK should also check if CPH-IAD with reduced frequencies is the way to go wintertime.
