American Airlines did stop their flights from Phoenix to Mazatlan for about a month(ish). Also, I would love to know, because you had a section on protecting the tourists from COVID-19, if anything is being done to protect the residents from getting COVID from the influx of tourists.

American Airlines never stopped flying the Phoenix route so it shouldn't be listed as "resumed.."
Tuesday 30th of June 2020
We are listing the route as 'resumed' because Mazatlan was not fully open for tourism before this date :)
