It is the third terminal opened by the government, which aims to create a network of 8 airfields to encourage the development of tourism in different parts of the country.
Tela airfield in the coastal department of Atlantis, has one runway measuring 1,600 meters and is now able to receive flights by smaller aircraft. The tourism private sector expects that increased air connectivity will boost development in the area.
An announcement has been made that there will be a review of the conditions of the infrastructure at El Jagüey airport so see if it has capacity for international commercial flights.
In order to alleviate air traffic at the international airport of El Salvador, the authorities of the Autonomous Executive Port Commission (CEPA) and Civil Aviation will be evaluating the state of the military airport in La Union for its potential to become an international airport.
The airstrip in the tourist town was renovated so that it can receive for two weekly flights from La Ceiba.
After 10 years without operating, the airfield has reopened and will receive direct flights from La Ceiba arriving on Mondays and Fridays operated by Línea Aérea Nacional de Honduras, S.A. (Lanhs, S.A.). With the opening of the airfield it is expected that there will be an increase in the flow of tourists to the region, which already gained favor since cruise ships starting docking in the port in the Bay of Trujillo.
The airfield will become an alternative to the international airport "Augusto C. Sandino".
