Airport World - Daniel Martínez Garbuno
The Caribbean region in Mexico is set to have a new airport.
Last week, the Mexican government inaugurated the new Felipe Ángeles International Airport to serve Mexico City. A few days later, the Mexican president revealed the plans to build a new international airport that would help support the tourist demand in the Caribbean region and help ease the saturation levels at Cancun International Airport, the most important gateway into the country. Let’s investigate further.
The Mexican government and army will build a new hub called Tulum International Airport. It will be located in the municipality of Felipe Carrillo Puerto, in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. Once inaugurated, the new airport could attract many airlines, from low-cost operators like Volaris and Viva Aerobus to legacy carriers like Delta Air Lines.
