Flights from the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) presented delays from 6:00 am this Wednesday due to system problems.
“A general communication failure between radars, unrelated to the AICM, affects all flight plans from the United States and Mexico. There have been minimal delays, ”the airport reported on its Twitter account.
Technicians from both the Navigation Services in the Mexican Air Space (Seneam) and the air terminal are working to solve the problem and normalize operations.
The financial consulted Seneam, an agency that pointed out that only the flights that have contracted the cargo and balance service with external parties were affected.
“The failure this morning is the transmission of flight plans from the United States, the impact is for the airlines that have contracted the cargo service,” he said.
Seneam indicated that there are no “delays at the moment, all operations are being handled without major setbacks.” However, the AICM flight log reports multiple delays to Dallas and San Antonio, in Texas, and even to vacation destinations like Los Cabos and Cancun. In total, 55 flights are delayed.
Users on social networks reported that their flights were already delayed.
The fault occurs in the middle of the summer holiday season, where a strong influx of American tourists to Mexico’s beach destinations is expected.
