Stockton airport wants to turn International

Someone is getting carried away:

Airport Director Barry Rondinella, who came up with the idea for the loan, said the money would be spent to build a terminal and federal inspection station. Although the money will be available later through the Federal Aviation Administration, Rondinella said the money is needed now to entice a Mexican airline — rumored to be Aeromexico — to provide flights between Stockton and destinations in Mexico.

Need I remind readers how the tenure of America West ended in Stockton two years ago? It was a nice service, and it ran at 85% capacity when it was terminated. Now, how exactly is Aeromexico going to make money if America West was unable to fill a CRJ? Cargo? What kind of cargo?
