San Bernardino Mayor Pat Morris and Emil Marzullo, interim director of the city’s Economic Development Agency, both said on Friday that they hope talks can set a flight path for an airline or two to make direct flights between Mexico and San Bernardino International Airport.
City Hall officials said that their recent journey to Mexico marked the first time San Bernardino has sent an official trade mission to that country. The conference met over the weekend in Teotihuacan, near Mexico City, and discussed trade with officials on Monday and Tuesday. The group returns on Wednesday.
Besides the possibility for international flights, the trade mission’s outcome could result in opportunities to import and export products and commodities to and from San Bernardino International Airport.
