This decision was announced by the Ministry of Development and Infrastructure to the General Directorate of Civil Aviation of the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda.

The Minister, José Ramón Díez de Revenga, also announced that the regional executive has requested a reduction in airport charges by the AENA concessionaire to encourage operations at the regional airport, in order to assist with the reactivation of flights after the COVID-19 pandemic.
