Project Description

Mexico City New International Airport

Client: Grupo Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de México (GACM)

Airport activity in Mexico City has grown faster than the economy, reaching the operating limit of the Mexico City International Airport which moved over 47 million passengers in year 2018. The Mexico City New International Airport (NAICM) was planned to replace the existing airport in a greenfield site area of over 4,000 hectares. Landrum & Brown was commissioned by Grupo Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de Mexico (GACM) to update the Master Plan for the NAICM in 2017-2018.

The Master Plan document served as the guiding planning principle during stages of pre-design, design, and construction. During the Master Plan Update, Landrum & Brown developed air traffic projections that were used as inputs in decision-making, defined the parameters for the phasing of development over time, and established the general layout of the facilities within the new site. An extensive coordination effort with the new airport stakeholders was conducted to assist in establishing the final plan for the NAICM.
