Local tourism authorities pointed out that the airport receives over 4,000 travelers a week who stay in hotels in Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo.
They added that 75 percent of arrivals come from Canada, mainly from Montreal and Toronto, while other airlines operate from London, Manchester, Germany and Italy.
