Tulum, Q.R. — The Secretariat of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation (SICT) has assigned the company Olmeca-Maya-Mexica management of the Tulum International Airport.
The SICT formalized the assignment of the Tulum Airport to the Olmeca-Maya-Mexica company, who also manages the Mexican Army.
The concession is granted by the SICT over an area of 1,505 hectares to the armed forces, both to operate the terminal and to sublet commercial spaces or even delegate airport services to third parties.
The document published in the Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF) establishes that the assignment will be for an indefinite period until it is considered that the management of the Army lacks public utility.
The document also details that the civil aerodrome will be classified as an International Airport with code 4E, as established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), as well as Category “8” in adequate meteorological conditions.
Tariff rules and other details are also established, such as the presentation of a five-year Master Development Plan similar to others that each of the country’s private airport groups are obliged to propose.
After publication in the DOF, the director of the Military Airport Group, René Trujillo, must designate an airport administrator who will be in charge of the administration of the Tulum International Airport.
