Gilberto López Meyer, Director General of ASA; José Luis Garza, Director General of Interjet; Mario Uvence Rojas, Tourism Secretary; Mariano Rosales Zuart, Secretary of Transport; Fernán Galindo Dahmlow, Director General de la Sociedad Operadora del Aeropuerto Internacional “Ángel Albino Corzo” (Tuxtla Gutierrez) were among those celebrating the first commercial flight at the new airport serving Palenque. Interjet’s service from Mexico City will operate twice-weekly initially.
- Interjet has become the first airline to serve the new airport serving Palenque (PQM) in the Chiapas region of Mexico. On 13 March the airline began twice-weekly (Thursdays and Sundays) flights from Mexico City (MEX) using its Sukhoi Superjet 100s. Palenque is home to Mexico’s fourth most popular archaeological site which attracts some 600,000 tourists each year. It is expected that this new airport, with its 2,500-metre runway, will help grow the number of local, but also international visitors significantly. See how the new airport’s fire crews performed on its first (of many, hopefully) ‘Arch of Triumph’.
