It would be an operational nightmare if the airport closes its Terminal 2.
Earlier this week, Mexico’s president Andrés Manuel López Obrador, said he was analyzing the possibility of rebuilding Mexico City Benito Juárez International Airport’s (MEX) Terminal 2, due to structural damage. If the Mexican authorities decided to embark on this project, it would heavily impact the daily operations at the country’s biggest airport, and it would be particularly harmful to Aeromexico.
While speaking in a daily press conference, Mr. López Obrador said the building of MEX’s Terminal 2 was done poorly. He said the whole Terminal is sinking, and therefore there’s the possibility of having to rebuild the whole thing entirely.
Mexico City’s Terminal 2 was inaugurated in 2006 to address the ongoing saturation at the airport.
