Mexico City.- After the “divine” intervention of the Secretary of the Interior, Adán Augusto López, new flights for the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA) began to fall from the sky.
Viva Aerobús announced yesterday that, starting next July 15, it will fly from the AIFA twice a week to Acapulco and Oaxaca; three times a week to Puerto Escondido and will have a daily flight to Cancun.
In addition, it will fly to Havana every day, which will be the company’s first international route from that terminal.
The airline already has seven routes in Santa Lucía, considering the two services to Monterrey and Guadalajara.
Viva Aerobús joined Aeroméxico, which reported on Tuesday that starting in August it will increase operations and in October it will carry out 30 flights from the AIFA. This occurs after the head of the Segob intervened to “give order” to the airport problems and called the Undersecretary of Communications, Rogelio Jiménez Pons, to account.
Juan Carlos Zuazua, CEO of Viva Aerobús, explained in an interview that the federal government is analyzing several proposals put forward by the airlines, in order to improve connectivity and achieve an incentive for travelers in the final cost.
Among them, he specified, the reduction of the toll cost of the Mexico-Pachuca highway and the Mexiquense Circuit; allow companies like Uber to drop off and pick up passengers from the airport, and make parking cheaper.
