President Manuel Zelaya of Honduras said he has decided to maintain the Toncontín Airport at Tegucigalpa closed to aircraft carrying more than 42 passengers.
Thursday, June 26, 2008
He made the decision despite a report from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) saying the runways would be safe for aircraft carrying up to 170 passengers.
The Honduran government authorized the immediate reopening of Tegucigalpa's Toncontín airport for flights by large passenger aircraft.
The preliminary report of the International Civil Aviation Association says that Toncontín airport at Tegucigalpa meets the requirements to operate, with few difficulties for companies approaching the runways.
The Honduras Government and the business community reached agreement on re-opening the Toncontín International Airport, once the safety conditions of the terminal have been assessed.
The Honduras Government was to meet today with interested parties to discuss the reopening of the Toncontín Airport.
