A key stretch of Mexico’s Tren Maya project and the construction of an airport near Tulum on the Yucatan peninsula, received land use rights.
While this would represent direct competition for the Cancun International Airport, a part of Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste, analysts predict the financial repercussions for it will be minimal.
The President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, revealed the purchase and location of the land where the new Tulum Airport will be built. The purchase agreement includes 200 hectares of ejidatario land in Felipe Carrillo Puerto.
The new airport of Quintana Roo, one part of the infrastructure projects planned by the Federal Government, will be located in the municipality of Felipe Carrillo Puerto and not in Tulum.
