Mexicana’s ‘Tianguis’ caused ‘economic damage’ to the AICM
After the Mexicana de Aviación counter area was vacated this Friday, the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) explained that this action was motivated because the space taken by the airline employees caused “the breakdown” of the airport.
“The way in which this space was being occupied and the activities that were carried out in it, caused the economic loss of the AICM, insecurity for users and unfair competition to formal commerce”, he explained.
Through a statement, the AICM clarified that this area had been illegally occupied since 2011, for which it requested a diligence to deliver this place.
The airport added that the eviction was voluntary, transparent and without any act of violence from both parties and specified that “none of the occupants accredited belonging to any union.”
It also reiterated that this act was carried out “essentially in security reasons which must privilege authorized users, operators and service providers”.
