Aeroméxico has announced it will resume flights to Managua, Nicaragua on Thursday July 1st 2021.
They will be providing flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, with each flight having a capacity of 99 passengers.
It looks like they will be using the Embraer E-190, typically used for short-haul flights and seats 100 passengers, arranged in two rows of two seats per row.
The airline said “they will resume flights in and out of the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport in Managua (Airport Code MGA) and adapt to the current safety and security protocols and requirements established by the national authorities”.
Aeroméxico will join Avianca and Copa in providing flights to Nicaragua. Copa services Managua from the Tocumen International Airport in Panama.
The news of Aeroméxico’s return was announced by José Adán Aguerri, the former president of the Superior Council of Private Enterprise (COSEP) in a VOSTV interview.
Aguerri also noted “It is still important to modify the rules relating to biosafety to match current international standards, allow rapid testing (for coronavirus) to enter Nicaragua”. He also suggested that there must be the capacity for more testing as passenger levels increase and more tourists need testing here before they leave.
