From the SABJ today, it appears some airlines are beginning to increase frequencies/resume service to various cities.

American - 2X to ORD, and increases to DFW and PHX staring in July.
Delta - 3X to ATL also in July.
Southwest - Increase in frequencies but doesn't mention to which cities.
Sun County - 2X weekly to MSP later this month.
United - 1X to DEN, IAD, and EWR in July.
Viva Aerobus - New service beginning 2X weekly to MTY in July.

Y'all be safe, cheers!

Link shows the cities which WN, and others, are scheduled to fly to later this year. I'd take the November and December adds with a grain of salt as most airlines in these times are adjusting their schedules less than a month out.

Also noticeably absent is information on Interjet, which had financial problems even before COVID.

First look: Sundt Construction begins work on $45M Broadway Street reconstruction downtown

By Mitchell Parton – Reporter, San Antonio Business Journal
Aug 6, 2020, 8:22am CDT Updated Aug 6, 2020, 9:01am CDT
A $45 million effort to rebuild central portions of Broadway Street is now underway.
Sundt Construction Inc., based in Tempe, Arizona, said Wednesday that it has started utility work on the first phase of the city bond-funded project. The current portion spans from East Houston Street to I-35.
“We’re excited to continue Sundt’s role in reshaping downtown San Antonio,” Jim O’Reilly, project manager for Sundt, said in a news release. “This project presents some unique obstacles, but our team is up for the challenge.”
The $45 million project includes a complete renovation of the street, including curbs, sidewalks, driveway approaches, traffic signals and drainage improvements. The rehabilitation also includes landscaping, lighting, stormwater runoff management and underground utility upgrades. Completion of this phase is estimated for the fall of 2024.
Los Angeles-based engineering firm AECOM and local landscape architecture firm MP Studio designed the project.
The full scope of improvements to Broadway Street consists of three segments: Houston Street to I-35, I-35 to Mulberry Avenue and Mulberry Avenue to Burr Road. The total project cost across all phases has been appropriated $61 million by the city, with $42 million from the 2017 bond program. Additional funding sources include $6 million from a tax increment reinvestment zone, $6.6 million from San Antonio Water System and $2.8 million from CPS Energy.
Construction firms have not been chosen for the additional portions beyond I-35, which will be done through a bid process, but local firm Pape-Dawson Engineers Inc. has been chosen to provide engineering design services.
Also downtown, Sundt is currently working on the San Pedro Creek Improvements, Canopy by Hilton Downtown San Antonio and just completed construction on the CPS Energy headquarters renovations.

I see part of the bond is going towards helicoptering in some new historic red brick buildings from New England or somewhere...

edit: I wonder what the Fiesta parade route will be during construction (assuming we ever get to have Fiesta again)?

Woohoo! Buried power lines? We can only hope.

Glad to see buried power lines! I'm not a fan of eliminating traffic lanes. As much development Broadway is getting, they will need all the lanes they currently have. What is the good of having a beautiful road if it is all congested.

Walkabiliy will be greatly encouraged and downtowns really shouldn't have wide streets. It's not safe for pedestrians. This will make it feel more like a neighborhood.

Downtown is way overbuilt for freeways. Let people in a hurry use them. Surface streets should be for slower movement.

Well, most power lines are actually already buried on Broadway south of 35. The only lines to bury are the ones on the cross streets I guess.

Vivaaerobus beginning new nonstop flights to Mexico City starting September 27
Operates Sundays and Thursdays

Departs MEX 6pm gets to SAT 8:30pm
Departs SAT 9:40pm gets to MEX midnight

Believe they've attempted this route before as well, but could be trying to pick up the slack from Interjet who has suspended all flights from SAT.

Aeromexico is also adding a second daily Mexico City flight starting September 12, seems to only be in September though. The second flight operates Saturdays, Sundays, and Wednesdays. Flight goes back to 1x daily beginning in October.
