Tulum Prepares for Takeoff: Tulum Airport will be Inaugurated on December.
December 1 will mark a milestone in Mexico’s airport infrastructure. In a recent press conference, the national president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, confirmed that the city of Tulum, located in Quintana Roo, will raise the curtain on the Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport.
This monumental work is the fruit of the effort and expertise of military engineers assigned to the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena).
The current administration, often referred to as the era of the Fourth Transformation, has revitalized and recalibrated the vision and functions of Sedena, not only in defensive roles, but in active participation in civic and social development projects that propel national progress.
The interaction of Sedena in the progress and development of Mexico is not limited to the construction of the Tulum Airport. López Obrador took advantage of the media attention to highlight other achievements and projects in which Sedena has played a leading role.
Among them, the Alejandro Gascón Mercado hydro-agricultural project stands out, which promises to irrigate more than 43 thousand hectares in Nayarit. Furthermore, we cannot ignore his contribution to the Felipe Ángeles International Airport, the expansion of 2,500+ branches of the Banco del Bienestar, the construction of 400 bases for the National Guard and, of course, the Mayan Train project.
During his interaction with the journalists present, the president also emphasized the multiple responsibilities and missions that the Mexican Army and Air Force have under their belt.
These include the protection of Mexican integrity, independence and sovereignty; the preservation of peace and internal security; assistance to citizens in emergency situations and public needs; and support in the restoration of areas devastated by disasters.
This announcement, beyond being a simple update on infrastructure, reflects the dynamic synergy between the armed forces and the current government’s vision of progress.
Tulum, known worldwide for its paradisiacal beaches and rich Mayan heritage, will soon have an air gateway that will connect visitors from all over the world, once again showing Mexico’s resilience and spirit of growth in the global era.
