Mexico City's New Airport Project

One of the main challenges in infrastructure in Mexico has been to find a viable alternative to build a new airport that caters to the capital's needs, and to the country's needs as a whole.

Given its size, design and social benefit, the new airport will be a momentous work; an emblem of modern Mexico. The first stage includes three tracks for simultaneous use, which is projected to carry more than 50 million people; while its second phase will have a total of six tracks, which will serve 120 million passengers a year.
