MÉRIDA (Times Media Mexico) .- “Grupo Aeroportuario de Sureste” (ASUR) will invest 2.5 billion pesos over the next 5 years to carry out the expansion project of the Mérida “Lic. Manuel Crescencio Rejón y Alcalá” International Airport, which will allow it to go from a capacity of 2 million to 4.7 million passengers.
The air terminal registered the arrival of 2’287,000 passengers between January and October 2019, representing a growth of 13.59% over the same period last year.
It is also connected to 17 destinations, of which 13 are national and 4 international; which allowed 43,936 flights to be registered until October, of which 94% are national and 6% international. The airport counts with the presence of 11 commercial and 7 cargo airlines.
At this point in time, the connection is maintained from Merida to 13 national destinations, which are El Bajío, Cancun, Chihuahua, Mexico City, Hermosillo, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Queretaro, Oaxaca, Tijuana, Tuxtla Gutierrez, Veracruz and Villahermosa, as well as 4 international flights to Houston and Miami in the USA, Havana, Cuba and Toronto, Canada.
“That is why we wanted to develop this master plan to build the development of the state of Yucatan. It is a very important work that will last 5 years and will transform the airport, because it will allow us to growth two times what we have today,” said Héctor Navarrete Muñoz, Director of Regional Airports of the ASUR Group.
On the expansion project, the director stated that, within its first phase, greater facilities and better spaces to serve passengers are contemplated, these adjustments are expected to be ready early next year.
Meanwhile, in its second stage, work will be carried out in the waiting rooms, inspection points, luggage belts, authorities building, boarding positions and unloading commercial platform.
