Mariano Matamoros

Mariano Matamoros

Matamoros, Mariano, d. 1814, Mexican revolutionist in the war against Spain. He was, like Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla and José María Morelos y Pavón, a priest with liberal political opinions. Much harassed by the Spanish authorities after the outbreak of the revolution of 1810, he joined Morelos (1811) and became a prominent military leader. After the defeat of Morelos's army by Agustín de Iturbide, Matamoros was captured, demoted from priestly office, and shot.

General Mariano Matamoros Airport , also known as Cuernavaca Airport, is an airport located in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico, near Mexico City. It handles national and international air traffic for the city of Cuernavaca. It is part of the Mexico City Metropolitan Airport Group, as the airports of Puebla, Queretaro, Hidalgo, Mexico City, and Toluca. The airport is operated by the government-owned corporation Aeropuertos y Servicios Auxiliares (ASA).

It was recently renovated with the purpose of offering a fresh image, and modern facilities, and its composed of a sole building (excluding general aviation terminal, hangars, and control tower), with check in facilities, security check-points, a cafe, ATM, customs, waiting room and a sole boarding gate.

It was Aerolíneas Internacionales hub before the airline ceased operations in 2003, and airlines as Mexicana, and Aeroméxico are trying to develop traffic from that airport.
