Travel to Mexico is discouraged
Americans Monday were advised to avoid nonessential travel to Mexico because of a swine flu outbreak that appears to have originated there, the head of the Centers for Disease Control said. Because Oklahoma City does not receive international flights, it is unlikely that operations at Will Rogers World Airport will be effected, said Mark Kranenburg, director of airports for Oklahoma City. Kranenburg said he has talked with county health department officials about possibly getting signs for the ticket counters and gate areas that will advise passengers what to do if they feel sick. Frontier Airlines was waiving some fees for travelers who already purchased tickets to Cancun, Cozumel, San Jose del Cabo or Puerto Vallarta who wished to alter their travel plans.
