Since October 2020, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced the construction of this airport, on a 1,500-hectare site in Tulum, acquired from the administration of Felipe Calderón Hinojosa for the same purpose.
According to the projection of the federal government , the work will be inaugurated in 2023 , so it is expected that from this year the works will start.
This airport will be built and operated by the Army , along with sections six and seven of the Mayan Train , which go from Tulum to Palenque, Chiapas, and will also be built and operated by the Secretariat of National Defense, as will the Felipe Ángeles airport. , in the metropolitan area of Mexico City.
According to the government, the work will not reduce the influx of the Cancun International Airport, since there are a large number of tourists in the Riviera Maya, and with the arrival of the train, a possibility of tourist diversification opens up to the south of Quintana Roo and the rest of the southeast of Mexico.
The municipality of Tulum had already planned the construction of an airport, ever since the Felipe Calderón Hinojosa six-year term.
