Qatar Airways Contradicts Mexican Government and Says No Plans to Fly to AIFA
Qatar Airways said on Wednesday it does not have plans to operate flights from Mexico City’s new Felipe Angeles International Airport, apparently contradicting government assertions that the airline wanted to use the hub.
“We can confirm that Qatar Airways do not have plans to commence operations to the Felipe Angeles International Airport, Mexico City,” an airline spokesman told Reuters.
Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said on Tuesday that “Qatar Airways told us via its CEO that they want to fly to Felipe Angeles Airport” and that Mexico planned to start negotiations this week with the Qatari national carrier.
President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador inaugurated the airport on March 21, as the first of the major infrastructure projects he has championed in office.
