The first day of June also marked the operations of the Matamoros terminal where Aeromexico flies with 5 weekly frequencies.
According to Fernando Olivera Rocha, the Secretary of Tourism of Tamaulipas, sees the resumption of flights and increase in flight frequencies as a good sign for Tamaulipas as a business and travel destination.
He also stressed that although it will take time to regain the high number of flight frequencies before the COVID-19 pandemic, he is confident that the recovery period will be significantly shorter because of the efforts and plans of the government through Governor Francisco García Cabeza de Vaca.
Health and safety protocols are being strictly observed across Tamaulipas as the resumption of travel and business activities begin. Air travelers are encouraged to adhere to new health and safety rules and their strict compliance is expected especially in the wearing of face masks.
