TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Aeromar has stopped service at the Tucson International Airport effective Tuesday, Aug. 1, according to a release from the Tucson Airport Authority.

The release cited "operational complexities" as a factor in the decision.

TAA said, "It is too soon to speculate on when or if regularly scheduled international air service can be reinstated but even before this decision, the TAA and Visit Tucson were having positive discussions with other airlines regarding an expansion of routes into Mexico."

This announcement comes less than a year after Tucson International Airport and Aeromar announced the service would start.
