Government officials in Mexico announced that the new airport project in Tulum would be completed by the end of the year.

According to Riviera Maya News, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and Quintana Roo Governor Mara Lezama Espinosa revealed the Felipe Carrillo Puerto Tulum International Airport project would be completed in December 2023.

President Lopez Obrador and Governor Lezama Espinosa made the announcement during a tour of the Tulum airport’s construction site.

“We are carrying out for the first time the evaluation of section 5 of the Maya Train where the Tulum Airport, Felipe Carrillo Puerto, is being built, a new marvel of civil-military engineering and the work of exceptional Mexican workers,” President Lopez Obrador said.

“In December it will be possible to fly to anywhere in Mexico and the world,” he continued.
