Tulum International Airport scheduled to open in December

Tulum, Q.R. — President Andrés Manuel López Obrador participated in a work tour of the upcoming Tulum International Airport. The President arrived in Chetumal Saturday and spent part of his time touring the under-construction facilities with Governor Mara Lezama Espinosa.

The pair toured the site of the Felipe Carrillo Puerto Tulum International Airport, a project that both announced will be finished in December of this year.

“We are carrying out for the first time the evaluation of section 5 of the Maya Train where the Tulum Airport, Felipe Carrillo Puerto, is being built, a new marvel of civil-military engineering and the work of exceptional Mexican workers.

“In December it will be possible to fly to anywhere in Mexico and the world,” López Obrador posted on his social media.

In a report, Lezama said that “on Saturday, section 5 of the Maya Train was evaluated, while progress of section 6 was supervised right where the new Tulum International Airport is being built, which will allow the expansion of the connection in Quintana Roo, which receives more than 30 million passengers a year.”

Governor Lezama congratulated the Secretary of National Defense for the civil-military engineering work they are carrying out in the construction of the new international airport, “which is expected to be ready in December of this year,” she said.

Last week, Ricardo Vallejo Suárez, who is in charge of the group of military engineers of the Ministry of National Defense (Sedena), reported airport construction is around 40 percent complete.
