Airport, Terminal & Transfer Info
Mexico City is served by Benito Juarez International Airport (IATA: MEX, ICAO: MMMX). A major hub for Aeromexico, Benito Juarez has two passenger terminals and two runways. The first terminal dates back to 1952 and was modernized in 2002, while the second was added in 2007 to relieve overcrowding. The airport is located in the Venustiano Carranza borough, just east of central Mexico City, so it's very conveniently located in close proximity to many of the city's best sights and hotels. Benito Juarez is connected to Mexico City's Metro rail system by a station at terminal 1. Both terminals are served by city bus lines as well as taxis and private car service.
