Five other airports will also fall in the hands of the Navy.

Mexico City International Airport (MEX) is set to undergo a change in management, transitioning to the hands of the country's Navy. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has signed an agreement that will see the MEX, along with the Mexico City Airport Group (GACM) and Mexico City Airport Services, being operated by the Secretariat of the Navy. This move, attributed to concerns about security, is expected to take effect within the next 60 calendar days.

In response to rising concerns over security and violence, President López Obrador initiated the deployment of military forces nationwide and appointed military personnel to prominent positions, even within the aviation sector.

Additionally, the management of airport projects such as the Felipe Ángeles and Tulum International Airports falls under the purview of the Secretary of National Defense (Sedena).
