Executive director of the Ports Authority, Herman Sulsona said that negotiations over a multimillion-dollar debt owed to the Puerto Rico Ports Authority by American Airlines are nearing resolution. A deal would clear the way for American to sublease several of its gates to other airlines now operating in crowded Terminal B in time for the busy tourism season that begins this December. The congestion in Terminal B, which houses most other airlines at Luis Mufloz Mann International Airport, is one of the most serious hindrances to the attraction of new air routes and tourists to Puerto Rico.
