As part of the infrastructure works planned for the reactivation of tourism and the economy, the government will soon begin construction of a new airport in Tulum, Quintana Roo, informed President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
An important section of the Mayan Train, one of the most important infrastructure works of the six-year term, will pass through this state. In this article I share with you more details about the Mayan Train “Everything you Need to Know About The New Mayan Train”.
The new Tulum International Airport “Felipe Carillo Puerto” will have the capacity to serve 4 million passengers per year, assured General Gustavo Vallejo.
It will become the second largest airport on the Peninsula. In addition to a multi-purpose military air base that will strengthen the security of the national air space, help the civilian population in case of disasters and attend forest fires,” said the official at the National Palace.
During the morning press conference on May 2, 2022, the military officer also announced that this new airport port will have a military base and will be integrated with the current highway system and the Mayan Train, which is currently under construction.
Currently, the project is in the studies phase and in the elaboration of the executive project, which is expected to be concluded next July. Construction of the military air base began last March and is expected to be completed in February of next year.
Construction work on the civilian airport facilities began in April and will be completed in December 2023. This new aeronautical complex will be operational as of May 2024, four months after the inauguration of the Mayan Train.
New Airport will improve TULUM's infrastructure
This new international airport will improve TULUM’s infrastructure and in turn there will be greater benefits for investors, since it will develop a new air terminal in Quintana Roo, detonate the construction of a commercial and service corridor along 10.5 kilometers of Federal Highway 307, and promote the construction of an airport city with urban redevelopment.
The project contemplates the construction of a runway of approximately 3,700 meters, in addition to a fuel terminal with a capacity of 6 million liters, a rescue and fire extinguishing station, and a platform for fixed and rotary wing aircraft.
It will also have a passenger terminal, general aviation offices, parking for passengers, employees, cabs and buses, and a Mayan Train terminal.
