CAMAGUEY, Cuba (ACN) — After recovering from damage caused by Hurricane Irma, Ignacio Agramonte International Airport in Camagüey has been ready since Tuesday to operate domestic and international flights, said Luis Quiñones, acting director of the facility. The airport at Camagüey suffered severe damage to roofs and windows.

Meanwhile, workers from the Cuban Telecommunications Company (ETECSA) continued the rehabilitation of telephone networks in Matanzas province after the passage of Hurricane Irma.

Quiñones also said that the airport of Las Tunas province is already operating at full capacity, while the one in Santa Lucia resort will start providing service in the coming days.

As already reported, at noon on Tuesday, domestic and international air operations were reestablished at the José Martí International Airport, in Havana, and at Juan Gualberto Gomez Airport in Varadero Beach.
