Cancun International Airport is planning to expand its facilities to keep up with the increasing surge of visitors.

The facility is the second-busiest airport in Mexico.
Cancun International Airport (CUN) is getting ready for further expansions, to keep up with the increasing demand of visitors. The airport is the second-busiest in Mexico, after Mexico City.
The operator of Cancun International Airport, Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste (Asur), will build a brand new Terminal Five, as part of its 2019-2023 investment plan. Construction is expected to start on the new facility at the end of 2018 or early 2019.
The expansions are part of a new 6.1 billion pesos ($303.5 million) project that will see improvements to both Cancun International Airport and the nearby Cozumel International Airport over the next five years. The operator’s master development plan will see 24.4-billion-peso ($1.2 billion) investment over the next 15 years.
Mexico’s air connectivity is seeing significant growth at many of its airports. In 2018, the country is expected to add a further 1.5 million new seats on direct flights, connecting people from all over the world to the vibrant country.
Cancun International Airport is located on the outskirts of the city, and last year it opened Terminal Four. The facility has a variety of facilities including banks, duty free shops, a beauty salon, VIP lounges, business centre, food court, restaurants and bars.
Cancun is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Mexico. Every year, hundreds of thousands of international travellers visit the region for its tropical beaches, dense jungles, turquoise sea, and ancient Mayan temples and ruins. The coastal area boasts an array of luxury beachfront hotels and resorts, and downtown Cancun is a thriving hub full of vibrant bars, night clubs, restaurants and shops.
The tourism industry in the Cancun and Riviera Maya region is growing, and there are plenty of attractions for visitors of all ages. Holidaymakers can visit ancient pyramids, and 2,000-year-old temples, including Coba, Ek Balam, San Gervasio, Xcaret, and Chichen Itza. Popular attractions in the area that portray its history and lush landscapes include the Xcaret Park in the Riviera Maya and the Cancun Underwater Museum, which was created by English artist Jason deCaires Taylor and is home to 400 life-sized sculptures that reflect Mayan people and symbolise the relationship between humans and nature.
