Mexican cargo carrier Estafeta will not seek renewal of its scheduled all-cargo frequency from Dallas-Fort Worth to Chihuahua, Mexico, says the carrier in a regulatory filing.
In an application to renew its scheduled and charter cargo routes to the USA, Estafeta says it does not foresee using that route in the near-term.
Estafeta is not presently using its authority to operate between Chihuahua and Dallas. It operates four weekly round-trip flights between Cancun and Miami and one weekly round-trip route between Merida and Miami. The carrier is seeking to extend those two routes, it says.
Estafeta leases four Boeing 737s and two Bombardier CRJ100 freighters and operates on the routes with its own crews. The carrier began operating domestically in November 2000 and started flying to the USA in 2002. The airline has the authority to operate cargo charter flights between several large hubs in Mexico and the USA under a bilateral charter agreement between the USA and Mexico.
