Toluca Airport will be a complement, not a competition

Although the commercial operations of Toluca International Airport have practically disappeared over the past two years, this terminal will not seek to compete with other terminals in the central region of the country.

Hugo Alberto Delgado, general manager of the air terminal, explained that they are betting on providing a supplementary service with Felipe Angeles International Airport and Mexico City Airport, and even when the airport usage fee (TUA tax) is barely 170 pesos per person, the expectation is that by the end of the year it will barely arrive Airport of the Mexican capital the attention of between 400 and 500 thousand people.

“We’re not competing, what we’re looking for is that the urban area infrastructure in airport matters has the commercial capacity for different parts of the city to bring the entire population close.”

It must be remembered that Toluca International Airport has the capacity, with only one runway, to serve up to eight million passengers every year, a number that has never been reached, even in the terminal’s best moments.

He said that it is currently in good preservation, and it is not necessary to make alterations to the track or invest in this space.

After nearly two years, Toluca will once again receive six commercial flights starting July 1 via airline Volaris, and two more flights to Monterrey and Cancun with Viva Aerobús starting July 28, and before the end of the year Merida and Puerto Vallarta are expected to open.

The station manager confirmed that they also have approaches with airlines such as TAR, Aeromar, Aeroméxico and in general with the entire National Chamber of Air Transport (Canaero) in order to expand the commercial offer both nationally and internationally.
