Mexican President inaugurates T4 at Cancún International Airport
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto (second from left) has officially opened the new Terminal 4 (T4) facility at Cancún International Airport in Mexico, which has increased the airport’s capacity by nine million passengers annually.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, the President said, “The investments in this terminal and Terminal 3 (T3) total nearly MXN$5bn (US$260m). When there is a greater demand for airports, when airlines have more passengers, when tourist destinations have a greater influx of domestic and foreign tourists, it means that the country is moving forward, that the economy is growing, and that there is greater economic dynamism in our country, and that is exactly what is happening.
“Cancun has been consolidated as the second most important international tourist destination in the country, after Mexico City. The tourism received by Quintana Roo is much higher that of many other countries in the Latin American region, such as Brazil, Colombia and Argentina,” said Peña Nieto.
Between 2012 and 2017, the volume of passengers flying to and from the country increased by 60%, while the commercial air fleet grew by 40%. In addition, 849 new national and international air routes have been created with average ticket prices remaining stable.
