President López Obrador announced on Saturday that the new Felipe Carrillo International Airport in Tulum is “44% complete.”

In a video posted to his Twitter account, the president showed the ongoing work at the site of the airport, located about 27 kilometers from the popular beach destination of Tulum, Quintana Roo and 1.8 kilometers from the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.

President López Obrador said that the 3,700-meter runway is nearly finished, and that there are 4,800 construction workers currently working to complete the project. The airport was just granted a conditional authorization permit following environmental impact studies on May 19, but construction had begun well before under a provisional permit. In fact, the president had said the project was already 20% complete in December.
