- Aeromar has begun domestic flights between Mexico City (MEX) and Monclova (LOV). Launched 9 August, this becomes the latter airport’s first scheduled service since the then-named Continental Airlines ended its route from Houston Intercontinental in September 2008. Operating at a five times weekly frequency, Aeromar will fly the 869-kilometre airport pair on its fleet of ATR 42-500s when referring to OAG schedules, although the first service was carried out by one of the airline’s ATR 72-600s, as confirmed by Flightradar24.com data. Andrés Fabré, MD of Aeromar, said that this route will exploit the potential of a highly industrial region, and recognised the coordinated work carried out between the State Government, Coahuila businessmen and of course the airline. With this launch, Aeromar is now operating 17 routes from Mexico City this summer, on up to 185 weekly flights. See how Monclova Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
