A person who went to Mexico within the past 10 days and returned to Kent County came down with some of the symptoms associated with swine flu, according to Dr. Mark Hall, medical director for the Kent County Health Department.

“I think it would be naive — when there are cases in Ohio, a suspected case in Michigan (in Livingston County) — to think we’re not going to get a case,” Hall said. “We are expecting cases.”

General Mariano Escobedo International Airport (IATA: MTY, ICAO: MMMY) is an international airport located in Apodaca, Nuevo León, Mexico. Together with Del Norte International Airport, General Mariano Escobedo International Airport handles domestic and international operations for the city of Monterrey and its metropolitan area.

The airport is considered one of the most modern airports in North America serving up to 8 million passengers per year. Eighty percent of passenger traffic is domestic, primarily from the cities of Mexico City, Guadalajara, Chihuahua, and Tijuana, and twenty percent of passenger traffic is international, primarily from the American cities of Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles. There are almost 300 daily flights to more than 35 destinations in Mexico, North America, and Europe. It is considered as the country’s fourth most important airport in terms of passengers handled and operations per year, after Mexico City International Airport, Cancún International Airport, and Guadalajara International Airport.

The airport serves as a hub for Aviacsa, Aeroméxico, Aeroméxico Connect and Viva Aerobus. Airport terminals were renovated and expanded in 2003 and again in 2007. The airport handled 5.25 million passengers in 2006, representing a 12.7% increase over 2005 [1].

World’s busiest passenger air routes
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The busiest air routes in the world appear to involve pairs of large cities in close proximity, but which rely more on air transport due to a lack of viable transport infrastructure for other modes, and the distance is large enough to discourage car driving.

[edit] By total volume of passengers

The Globalization and World Cities (GaWC) Research Network at Loughborough University compiled statistics on the total volume of passengers who flew in the first eight months of 2001, utilising a reservation system database [2]. Note on reliability: This data is based on reservations through GDS reservation system databases. Direct booking at the airline itself over internet/telephone is not included. Some heavy domestic routes like Madrid—Barcelona have many unbooked passengers. In some cases it is off by a factor of three, the study finds Melbourne—Sydney carries 2.3 million passengers annually (1.5 in 8 months) while the Australian Government reports over seven million passengers are carried.[3]

2007 numbers – but still, how many people have traveled to or from Mexico over the past three weeks?

Mexico City is apparently the 16th busiest route in the world.

When swine flu was found – the travel should have been stopped for a few days or a couple weeks and those already exposed could have been quarantined. But, no.
