TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Regular international commercial airline service is scheduled to return to Tucson International Airport next month, the Tucson Airport Authority announced on Wednesday.

On Oct. 3, Aeromar will begin service to Hermosillo, Los Mochis, Mazatlán and Guadalajara in Mexico.

"Nonstop flights to Hermosillo - a hub in Mexico's airline system and the capital of the state of Sonora - are an important development in Tucson's trade, tourism and cultural exchanges with our neighbors to the south," said Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild. "I could not be more pleased at this announcement and I want to thank and welcome Aeromar to Tucson."
