Mexico City, Mexico — A total of 30 flights per day will be rescheduled from Mexico City International to other area airports including the new AIFA. Rogelio Jiménez Pons, the Undersecretary of Transport, says the restructuring will begin in July.
Pons reported that during the first phase, they will start by moving 10 flights per day for each of the three Mexican carriers Viva Aerobus, Aeroméxico and Volaris. Those 30 flights will be scheduled to land at other city airports including the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA).
In October for the winter season, there will be another phase that will see more flights moved to other airports from the Mexico City International Airport (AICM).
He says the goal is to reduce air operations at Mexico’s busiest airport by between 20 and 25 percent, since the Santa Lucía Airport was built to relieve the saturation at Mexico City International.
Pons says that now, they are in a working phase and in talks with the three Mexican airlines about transferring their flights to other airports.
