The El Salvador Pacific Airport is a new international airport that will be built in the eastern part of El Salvador, in the department of La Union. This airport will serve as a hub to cities in Europe, the Caribbean, North America, and South America.
The new airport is a campaign promise that President Nayib Bukele made to the people in the region of San Miguel and La Union. The Bukele administration believes that this airport will increase the economy of the eastern part of El Salvador.
Why is the Pacific Airport El Salvador important to the region?
The airport will have an economic benefit to the region by increasing tourism and creating job opportunities. Also, it will benefit people who travel in and out of the eastern part of El Salvador.
Without a doubt, an international airport in the department of La Union will increase tourism. Many tourists don’t visit the tourist spots located in the eastern part of the country due to the time it takes to get there.
If tourism to the area increases, it will create job opportunities in the tourism industry. Also, the airport itself will create jobs directly.
Another benefit of having this airport is that people who travel to and from the region will not have to go to the Arnulfo Romero airport anymore.
As of right now, it can take from three to five hours to reach the Oscar Arnulfo Romero international airport from the city of La Union. The Pacific Airport El Salvador will change that.
The El Salvador Pacific Airport.
Even though the El Salvador pacific airport is in the planning stages. People in the eastern part have the right to feel optimistic about it.
This airport will have a tremendous impact on the region and the people in the area. There is no secret that previous administrations didn’t do enough to help develop the eastern territory.
