Second Airport For Mexico City?

The General Director of Mexico City International Airport, Héctor Velázquez, has said that Mexico City needs a second airport as the existing one is at saturation point.  He was speaking at an event in February organised by IATA and the Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association (ALTA).
The idea was originally proposed in the 1990s but failed to secure the necessary political backing.
In terms of capacity, Mexico is second only to Brazil on the continent, though the Mexican domestic market has shrunk by 8% in the past four years, from 27.6 million passengers in 2008 to 25.5 million in 2011.  International traffic has reduced in the same period by 1%, from 25.7 million passengers to 25.3 million in 2011.
As the country’s most popular airport, Mexico City International’s total traffic rose by 0.6% from 26.2 million passengers in 2008 to 26.4 million in 2011.
