WTTC: Mexico City Santa Lucia Airbase conversion is not feasible

20 August, 2019

World Travel & Tourism Council president and CEO Gloria Guevara said the conversion of Mexico City Santa Lucia Airbase to handle commercial operations is not feasible (El Sol de Mexico, 15-Aug-2019). Ms Guevara stated: "We have the need for a quality airport… the experts I interact with from the ACI [also] do not believe the airport is feasible". She added that the impacts of the cancellation of New Mexico City International Airport (NMCIA) will be felt in "about five years, we are setting ourselves in a great competitive disadvantage".
