Mexican airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, known as OMA, has hosted a groundbreaking event for the expansion project at Monterrey International Airport in Nuevo León.
With an investment of 4,245 million pesos (US$220m) to be executed between 2019 and 2025, Monterrey International will increase its capacity by 50% to 16.5 million passengers.
The expansion is to be carried out in two stages. The first phase includes the expansion of the public area and the development of the check-in areas, adding 88 fixed and 20 automated counters, as well as the construction of Wing 1, with 11 boarding gates.
The second phase includes a new inspection point, with 12 new passenger service lines, which will generate a more efficient transit. In addition, Wing 2 will be built, with 15 boarding gates equipped with walkways, as well as the expansion of the national and international baggage claim areas.
Monterrey International Airport will remain fully operational throughout the construction process.
