he Mexico City New International Airport (NAICM) is a new greenfield airport being built in the city of Mexico, to replace the existing Benito Juarez International Airport.
The project is being developed by Mexico's Secretariat of Communications and Transport (SCT) as part of the transport development plan announced by Mexican President, who allocated $9.2bn for the construction of new airport in September 2014. It is one of the world's biggest airport infrastructure projects and is expected to be the biggest airport in Latin America.
The new airport will have an initial capacity to handle 50 million passengers a year, which will be increased to 120 million annually through expansion by 2062. Construction is expected to begin in 2015 and the first phase is scheduled for completion by early 2019.
