THE CENTRAL AMERICAN AVIATION THREAD
Airlines from Europe in Central America
This thread is now dedicated for those European carrier flying to the isthmus.
Our region has recently experienced new carriers operating here or increasing their weekly frequencies.
Some of them are now flying on a year-round basis.
Ten years ago, only IB and DE were in service here. This fact provide an idea about the expansion of that market.
KL AMS-SJO. Effective: October 31
LH FRA-SJO. Effective: March 29

At least it seems they're doing better than 17 years ago, when the route was operated via GCM IIRC. If they'd move the route to LHR (which I know they'll never do), they could use belly cargo as one potential driver for good yields.2travel2know2 wrote:yellowtail wrote:Maybe routing it via PTY may improve the loads.How is BA doing in SJO now.

According to a facebook page called Aeroinfo Costa Rica, they are doing great on this route.
All actual European routes from SJO are above 80% load factor.

Personally, I have no problems with that.According to Prensa Libre, Guatemala will now place a higher security scrutiny on electronics larger than a cellphone for flights to the US. Apparently Mexico is doing it as well. Any other countries in the region doing this?
