Delta, Virgin America Also Applied For Route Frontier Is Giving
US Department of Transportation (DOT) proposed Monday to allow
United Air Lines to begin new flights between Los Angeles and San
Jose del Cabo, Mexico.
The service was made available when Frontier Airlines notified
the Department that it would cease flying that route after April
13. Frontier was one of three US carriers, along with American
Airlines and Alaska Airlines, serving the market.
Under the U.S.-Mexico aviation agreement, three US airlines may
fly between Los Angeles and San Jose del Cabo. In addition to
United, Delta Air Lines and Virgin America applied for the right to
serve the route.
In its show-cause order, the Department tentatively found that
United’s proposal would provide the best service to air
travelers. The Department noted while all the applicants proposed
to operate a single daily year-round flight, only United proposed
to operate two daily flights during the heavily traveled summer
The Department also noted United’s proposal would provide
connecting benefits, that could promote sustained competition and
service on the route. United would be required to begin service 90
days following a final decision.
If made final, United’s authority will be effective for
two years. Delta was tentatively selected as backup carrier in case
United is either unable to begin service or, at a minimum, sustain
the service it proposed.
Objections to the Department’s order are due in seven
days, with answers to objections from interested parties due five
