Cancun Airport Expansion

Good news for Cancun visitors, the renovation of Terminal 3 at Cancun International Airport will be completed this year and work will begin on a fourth terminal.

Terminal 4 is scheduled to be finished by 2017 and will boost the airport’s passenger handling capacity to 25 million people per year. In 2014, 17.4 million international and domestic passengers used the airport, a 9.35 percent increase on 2013.

In other airport news, the Mexican Immigration Institute has announced that it will be adding more personnel and booths to the Immigration Area at Cancun and Mexico City airports in order to speed up the entry process for arriving passengers. To date, no time frame has been given for this upgrade.
