According to Albino Roman, President of the Autonomous Executive Port Commission (CEPA) "the commercial flight and the three cargo flights during said shift can be transferred to other shifts, which run from 6:00 am to 2:00 p. m., and from 2:00 p. m. to 10:00 p. m., and which have more traffic.
"This matter is about costs. As the administrator of CEPA I find it a somewhat burdensome having to spend half a million dollars," Roman added.
