“At Coriport we are ready to serve international visitors. With the announcement of the government authorities to postpone the entry of foreigners from the United States, the itineraries of U.S. airlines will be modified accordingly.

“We respect the decisions of the authorities and follow orders to be able to advance, in a safe and controlled manner, with the entry of passengers into the country, and thereby be part of the solution for an economic reactivation of the country,” said César Jaramillo, manager of the manager of that air terminal.

On July 13, Jaramillo said in an interview, that of the 11 airlines that fly into Liberia, five confirmed flights starting in August.
