In an exciting development for Quintana Roo, the governor, Mara Lezama Espinosa, recently shared the remarkable progress made on the construction of the Tulum International Airport, named after the illustrious Mexican revolutionary leader Felipe Carrillo Puerto. Spearheaded by a team of skilled engineers and personnel from the esteemed National Defense Secretariat (Sedena), this ambitious project is set to redefine the region’s transportation infrastructure and bolster its thriving tourism industry.

Taking to her social media platforms, Governor Lezama Espinosa proudly announced that the completion of the airport’s 3,700-meter runway is nearing its final stages. This state-of-the-art facility is designed to accommodate the increasing influx of travelers, with a passenger terminal capable of welcoming up to 5.5 million visitors annually. Notably, progress on the terminal construction is well underway and is being meticulously executed within the stipulated timeline.

Scheduled for inauguration in December of this year, the Tulum International Airport is poised to become the new gateway to Quintana Roo.

With seamless connectivity to the famed Tren Maya, a transformative railway project that traverses the Yucatán Peninsula, the airport’s integration with the broader transportation network will further diversify the region’s tourism offerings.
