The Cancellation Of Mexico’s Airport Could Cost The Country More Than €4.4 Bn

The president elect of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, confirmed the cancellation of the construction works for the airport of Mexico. This is the result of the binding referendum and means the end of a project with a budget of €10 bn, of which 20% has been completed. The president’s alternative proposal is to enlarge the the military airport Santa Lucia (terminal for international flights) and modernise the old airport of Benito Juárez in the centre of Mexico City (for domestic traffic).
