Giammattei told that "... We are going to hand over several airports to the municipalities, such as Flores (Petén), we will hand over the airport of the Mayan World. La Aurora International Airport will be under the administration of the Municipality of Guatemala, in charge of Mayor Ricardo Quinonez."

The future governor explained that these changes will be possible, since one of the modifications that will be made is that "... Direction of Civil Aeronautics will no longer belong to the Ministry of Communications Infrastructure and Housing (Civ), but to the Presidency of the Republic. As part of these changes, Civil Aeronautics would no longer be responsible for the administration of air terminals but the 'safety of air navigation', so they hope to acquire a system of specialized radars for it."

If these changes materialize, in the future municipalities may deliver in usufruct the administration of air terminals, an award that would be made through a tender.
