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.

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

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:

-Cargo flights
-Humanitarian aid flights
-Ambulance flights
-Ferry flights and maintenance."

According to CentralAmericaData reports, when economies start to normalize their commercial activity, demand for air transport services could contract by 8%, when compared to sales levels registered before the Covid-19 crisis.
