He explained that this month up to two frequencies a day were canceled, mainly because the airlines are modifying their aircraft operating mechanisms, expenses and resources due to the economic situation of these companies.
He pointed out that the connections and routes to destinations such as Guadalajara, Monterrey, Oaxaca and Tijuana are maintained according to the established schedules and times.
