Air travel to Mexico’s Cabo San Lucas region remains problematic, in the wake of Hurricane Odile’s passage on Monday. The category-three storm was the largest ever to make landfall on the country’s Baja California peninsula, lashing the tourist region with heavy rain and high wind. As a result, affected airports in the area are closed to non-humanitarian general aviation traffic at least through the weekend, according to Universal Weather & Aviation.

NBAA Air Traffic Services is warning business aircraft operators that the G20 Summit, which starts tomorrow in Los Cabos, Mexico, is resulting in “some significant impacts to air traffic” at Los Cabos International, Cabo San Lucas International and Gen. Manuel Marquez Airports. A five-mile TFR is expected around the as-yet unannounced hotel, possibly near Los Cabos International Airport, where head-of-state VIPs will be staying. Additionally, a second-tier TFR might be implemented that would cover a 10- to 30-mile radius.
