In an exclusive interview, the federal official announced that the decree about to be published would not consider commercial operations, but would be exclusive to freight operators and charterers.

I am optimistic and hope it will recover in four months.” At the same time, the Undersecretary acknowledged that although the decree was issued by AICM saturation, the saturation is not higher (in the airspace), but in general areas of service that renders both terminals inoperative.
It’s saturated but it’s less about operations than about infrastructure on the ground. The rooms, the corridors, the bathrooms, the parking lot and the entrance, so we will send the shipment to Al-Aifa.”

“We can’t go back to the previous airspace design because the AIFA variant wasn’t there, that simple. We have to adjust it to this new reality,” he said.
