Mexico Is Building Biggest Airport In American Continent – Mexico Future Mega Project

Mexico City’s New International Airport was announced by Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto on September 2, 2014, and is the largest public infrastructure mega project in a century. The new airport will replace current Benito Juárez International Airport, the busiest airport in Latin America transporting 41.7 million passengers in 2016

This U.S. Billion-dollar airport is expected to begin operations in 2020 with three runways in operation simultaneously and a passenger capacity of 50 million per year. When fully completed, it will have two terminals and six runways with an annual passenger capacity of 125 million , making it the second largest airport in the world today.

The architecture :

The entrance to the terminal will feature a garden of cacti and symbols of the eagle and snake, part of the national symbol pictured on the country’s Coat of Arms and flag.

The X is symbolic of the country’s name, “México”. An X-shape is also considered efficient to extend the number of gates. The X shape is used in the airports of Abu Dhabi, Mumbai, Nairobi, Pittsburgh, and Incheon.
The roof is airy, lightweight, and made of membrane.

designed to be the world’s most sustainable airport, the compact single terminal uses less materials and energy than a cluster of buildings. the design ensures short walking distances and few level changes.

The terminal is to be sustainable, aiming for a LEED Platinum certification.The project claims it is “designed to be the world’s most sustainable airport”.

  1. In mexico 70 % population is poor..
    And only 10 % fly in planes … 125 millions

  2. Mexico preparing themselves to be able to send half of their population over the wall with planes hahaa

  3. This airport is a foolish project. Why in the hell would anybody in the americas want to layover in mex city when you could fly most lanes directly to/from north/central/south america? Range-wise you can fly a 737 or 320 the southern US to any south american country already. As far as being an asia/europe intercontinental hub, LOL wrong way jose. The only legit midpoint mex could serve is oceania/europe, but qantas already serves this lane DIRECTLY.

    If you want to spend $13bn in corporate socialism, find a better deal than this nonsense.

  4. Sera un desastre como todos los proyectos de construccion en mexico, materiales baratos, obra barata y mucha pero mucha corrupcion en su construccion…

  5. Llegan a ese aeropuerto y piensan que todo es divino y de ahi se van para la ciudad o municipios, viendo vagabundos, niños pidiendo dinero, calles sucias y con baches, asaltos, paredes ralladas, pobresa etc etc… debieron invertir en algo más veneficioso para el pueblo en general.

  7. Sorry to spoil it. But AMLO will cancel the project. Instead it will upgrade the existing airports and prevent the money to go into the pockets of the corrupt contractors.

  8. Mi presidente va cancelar Este aeropuerto porque mexico no es lo que quiere aparentar mientras la mayoria de mexicanos nisiquiera viajan en avion y son gente pobre solo son Lujos de la mafia del poder aparte de que ellos tienen inversiones en ese proyecto .
