Chetumal, Q.R. — President Andrés Manuel López Obrador arrived in Chetumal late Friday night as part of another Maya Train progress tour. AMLO’s helicopter landed just before midnight at the 34th base of the military zone outside the state’s capital city.
While an official agenda has not been released, AMLO is in the state to supervise progress on his ongoing Maya Train project as well as begin work on the Tulum airport.
He repeatadly said that once the Aeropuerto Internacional Felipe Ángeles (AIFA) was complete, he would begin working on the construction of the Tulum airport. He also publically announced his intention to travel to Quintana Roo for a progress report during “the first days of April.”
Last week, a convoy of military personnel and equipment arrived in Tulum. Some of that equipment will remain there, while the rest of it is being forwarded to other Maya Train sections.
At least 30,000 military soldiers are also being sent to the region by AMLO to work on both the Maya Train and Tulum Airport projects.
