Just a few days before the Inauguration, This is What Tulum International Airport will Look like once it is open to the public, we present the photos and all the details.
Tulum International Airport, one of the most emblematic initiatives of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, is scheduled to open its doors on December 1, marking a milestone in Mexico’s transportation infrastructure.
This project promises to be a catalyst for tourism and connectivity in the Riviera Maya.
Design and Capacity of the New Airport
Named in honor of Felipe Carrillo Puerto, the airport is the result of a joint civil-military effort and will be located 10 kilometers southwest of Tulum, just a few minutes from the famous archaeological zone of Tulum.
Its design and structure are designed to integrate harmoniously with the Mayan Train, creating an efficient and modern transportation hub.
With an investment of 3.2 billion pesos, the airport has been designed to handle a significant volume of air traffic. It is expected to have the capacity to serve up to 5.5 million passengers and carry out about 32 thousand air operations annually.
The infrastructure will include a 3,700-meter main runway, 13 positions for commercial flights, a hangar and a wastewater treatment plant, underscoring a commitment to environmental sustainability.
Impact on Tourism and Regional Connectivity
The strategic location of the Tulum airport will greatly facilitate access to the southern part of the Riviera Maya, a region full of natural and cultural attractions such as virgin beaches, cenotes, mangroves and natural reserves.
In addition, it will be the closest airport to key tourist destinations such as the magical town of Valladolid and the emblematic archaeological zone of Chichen Itza, in Yucatán.
The airport will not only improve connectivity with these treasures of the peninsula, but also promises to be a point of convergence between national and international tourism.
With the conjunction of the Mayan Train and the Tulum Airport, an increase in tourist flow is expected, which could significantly boost the local and regional economy.
