Mexican airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte (OMA) has opened the Acapulco airport terminal building.
The new building, which has been constructed with an investment of MXN615m ($31.4), spans across 18,000m² of space and is capable of handling approximately 1.3 million passengers per annum during the first phase.
Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte CEO Porfirio Gonzalez said: “This building represents a generational change in infrastructure and a complete renewal of the airport’s image.
“It was constructed using intelligent engineering techniques, as part of an integrated project for both the structure and all its equipment.”
The airport terminal building features a 3,600m² departure lounge, six self-check-in kiosks, six boarding gates, and 34 check-in service counters, baggage screening, and energy use monitoring, among others facilities.
It is now 100% operational and meets the highest international standards of quality.
Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte board chairman Diego Quintana said: “This project demonstrates the OMA’s commitment and coordination with federal, state, and municipal governments to work together on the renewal of the image of Acapulco, one of Mexico’s most important tourist destinations, and to increase its attraction for visitors.
“Airports are key elements in the development of tourism, and OMA continues to work hand in hand with the authorities, service providers, airlines, and hotel operators to achieve this objective.”
OMA manages 13 international airports in nine states of central and northern Mexico. It also manages the NH Collection Hotel inside Terminal 2 of the Mexico City airport and the Hilton Garden Inn at the Monterrey airport.
