Airport Closed Until April 19th

In El Salvador, authorities decided that commercial flights at the Oscar Romero International Airport will be suspended for the next three weeks due to the health alert the country is facing.

The decision was announced by the Autonomous Executive Port Commission (CEPA), and details that this is part of the compliance with the state of emergency and Executive Decree No. 12, due to the covid-19 pandemic.

The publication in social networks states that "... the measure implemented in the International Airport of El Salvador will not affect the operations of:
