- Aeromexico on 10 December added Managua (MGA) in Nicaragua to its route network when it launched six times weekly flights on the 1,600-kilometre route from Mexico City (MEX) using its E170s. No other carrier operates the route. With this development, Managua will be positioned as Aeromexico’s fifth Central American destination and the 14th across all of Latin American. In the first 11 months of 2014 international passenger numbers at Augusto César Sandino International Airport serving Managua are up around 7% at just over one million. Other airlines serving the Nicaraguan airport include American Airlines to Miami, Delta Air Lines to Atlanta, Spirit Airlines to Fort Lauderdale and United Airlines to Houston Intercontinental.
