  • Comment: Mexican wave

    <P><EM><STRONG>The long-running question over Mexican air transport's need for two major carriers could be answered with the bankruptcy of Mexicana. As natural forces play out is this another market where the survivors are a transformed network player and a low-fare upstart?</STRONG></EM> </P> <P>Mexicana is the first major casualty of the global financial crisis and, ironically, it fell just as both the industry and Mexican aviation were starting to recover. Airlines never collapse for only one reason, and there are plenty in Mexicana's case - a swarm of low-cost carriers, the H1N1 virus, excessive labour and fuel costs - but one cause near the top of this list has to be the financial markets.</P> <P> <TABLE style="WIDTH: 445px" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 align=center border=0> <TBODY> <TR> <TH> <P align=center><IMG style="WIDTH: 445px; HEIGHT: 297px" alt="(c)Esparta 445" src="../assets/getAsset.aspx?ItemID=35689" border=0></P>&nbsp;</TH></TR> <TR> <TD> <H6 align=right>&nbhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Comment-Mexican-wave-346316/

  • Caribbean-Latin America market poised for growth

    News | 19 Aug 2009 15:26 | Brendan Sobie

    <P>The Caribbean-Latin America market is tiny but its potential is starting to attract some big name carriers </P> <P>Gol recently launching low frequency seasonal charters to three Caribbean islands may seem like a relatively minor event. But the arrival of the largest Latin American low-cost carrier in Aruba, Curacao and the Dominican Republic is a big deal for the Caribbean, as it marks an important step in its efforts to boost Latin American links.</P> <P>Except for some very short flights connecting the southern Caribbean with nearby Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, French Guiana and Suriname, there are virtually no direct services between the Caribbean and South America. But at the end of June Gol became the first carrier from Brazil, Latin America's largest market, with Caribbean services. </P> <P>Gol is now operating a weekly flight from Brasilia <A href="http://www.flightglobal.com/articles/2009/06/24/328803/gol-to-launch-caribbean-services.html">to Aruba and Curacao on a triahttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Caribbean-Latin-America-market-poised-for-growth-331224/
