Four civilian airports in southeastern Mexico will come under the control of the Ministry of the Navy and the Ministry of Defense, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said.
"We have already made the decision, everything is ready in Campeche ... I inform you that Ciudad del Carmen airport will be run by the Navy and Campeche by the Ministry of Defense," the politician said during a press conference held during his visit to Campeche state.
The politician recalled the government's plans to re-establish the Mexicana de Aviación airline within the Ministry of Defense, which, among other things, will be responsible for the commercial operation of the presidential jet, which will take over control of three air harbors.
The Mexicana de Aviación, according to the president, will be created by the end of 2023 and will be managed by the state infrastructure company Olmeca-Maya-Mexica, which operates the Mayan Train, the new Felipe Ángeles International Airport in Mexico City AIFA and Tulum Airport, which is under construction.
