Cancun holidays to benefit from increased capacity at airport

Cancun's airport is about to expand as a second runway is planned, which would double the capacity to approximately 28 million to mean the ever-increasing demands for Cancun holidays, which is forecasted to increase over the next decades.

Cancun holidays to benefit from increased capacity at airport

Cancun holidays are extending their invitation to a wider span of worldwide holidaymakers as they increase capacity at their main airport. And most likely the building of new Cancun hotels will follow suit to go hand in hand with this increase in capacity which will see as many as a further 14 million visitors arriving to this Caribbean holiday destination over the next decades.

The first privatised airport group in Mexico and main operator of Cancun Airport, together with 8 other airports in southeast Mexico, Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE: ASR; BMV: ASUR), (ASUR), today announced the inauguration of what will be the second runway of Cancun Airport, which will double the airport’s capacity to approximately 28 million passengers per annum. As this ever-popular holiday destinations keeps intoxicating the world with its sunny appeal and world class resorts offering the ultimate in luxury holidays, this increased capacity level is expected to meet forecasted demand for the next several decades, as worldwide demand keeps growing for Cancun holidays.

The second runway, which will run parallel to the existing one, allows for simultaneous takeoffs and landings, thereby increasing operating capacity to more than 80 takeoffs or landings per hour. Cancun Airport is the first airport in Mexico with two runways that can be used at the same time.

Representing a total investment of approximately US$67 million, the project also includes a new control tower, the tallest in Latin America, and one of the top 20 tallest control towers worldwide.

With the building of this new infrastructure feature for Cancun holidays, ASUR expects to contribute to economic development in the region and to maintain Cancun’s position at the forefront of airport services in Mexico and Latin America.
