La Aurora Will Open Today, However...

The Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil announced this morning that the airport cleanup is 90 to 95 percent complete. All that remains to be cleaned is a strip of 1,900 meters by 60 meters. The DGAC plans to open the airport at noon today.

However, flight operations will likely not restart immediately. Some airlines are talking about Thursday for restarting flights so check with your air carrier.

La Aurora International Airport has been closed since May 27th due to volcanic ash falls from the eruption of Volcan Pacaya.
