López Obrador reports 20 percent advancement on Tulum airport construction

Tulum, Q. R. — The Tulum International Airport is progressing reported President Andrés Manuel López Obrador. On Thursday, he said the airport was around 20 percent in construction advancements.

“We have already finished the rehabilitation of the Chetumal airport. The construction of the Tulum airport has begun. It will be a first-rate international airport which now, is about 20 percent complete. We will be inaugurating it in December of next year,” he explained during his morning press conference.

He recalled that the Olmeca-Maya-Mexica company, which is managed by the Secretary of National Defense (Sedena), will manage the Tulum airport. The company will also be responsible for managing several other airports around the country as well as the Maya Train.

López Obrador said the reason he has left these projects in the hands of Sedena is to prevent them from being privatized since they were constructed with public resources.
