Mexico City Airport Information

Mexico City International Airport, also called Benito Juarez International Airport (IATA: MEX) is a commercial airport that serves Mexico City, the capital of Mexico. It is Mexico's and Latin America's busiest. Although this was not its official name for several decades, it was formally named after the 19th century president Benito Juárez in 2006, and is Mexico's main international and domestic gateway.In 2009, the airport served 24,243,056 passengers, making it the busiest in Latin America.

The airport first opened as Balbuena Military Airport with 5 runways, first landing in 1928. it officially became a commercial airport in 1952, but in the 70s President Luis Echeverría took 3 of its runways for the poor of the city to build homes on. Now, the airport has 2 terminals (the second opened in 2007) and 2 runways. It is restricted in terms of growth due to the densly-populated surroundings of Mexico City, meaning that demand is outstripping growth and private planes must use alternate airports.
