Mexico City Airport
Mexico City D.F. - Mexico
The airport will be built in the Zona Federal del Lago de Texcoco, an area that is still not built-up on the Lake Texcoco lakebed. It is currently under the administration of the Comisión Nacional del Agua (Conagua), or National Water Commission. The land lies within the municipalities of Atenco, Ecatepec and Texcoco, in the State of Mexico.[11] The airport will be approximately 1 hour 5 minutes (43 km) from downtown due to the lack of a new dedicated expressway.
The airport was to start the building process in 2015 or 2016 with its starting phase. It is expected to put its first phase in operation in 2020. If completed as planned, the airport will have a passenger capacity of up to 57 million passengers and, if the master plan is completed in the following decades, up to 120 million people per year. This would make it the largest airport in Latin America as well in the Americas in both physical size and passenger volume.
