CIVIL AVIATION BOARD APPROVES CUENCA’S AIRPORT FOR INTERNATIONAL SERVICE
Ecuador’s Civil Aviation Board has okayed the city’s request to establish immigration services at Mariscal La Mar airport, allowing it to process international air passengers. The plan means that international flights on a single air carrier can originate and end in Cuenca, with connections in Quito and Guayaquil.
The approval is contingent on the installation of a new aviation radar system that the airport says will be operational by December.
The 2008 airport renovation project included additional space to process international passengers.
