Officials from Cancun International Airport in Mexico have announced the addition of a new terminal to meet the rising number of passengers coming through the facility.
According to the Riviera Maya News, the Airport Group of the Southeast (ASUR) has started preparations for the addition of a new terminal, dubbed Terminal 5, as part of a series of updates and improvements at the Cancun airport.
The announcement of a new terminal will cost at least $300 million and is part of an investment plan for the period 2019-2023, which also includes upgrades to the Cozumel airport. Both facilities have seen constant growth in passenger traffic numbers.
The new construction would help the airport handle an additional nine million passengers per year.
Construction on the new terminal at Cancun International Airport is set to begin later this year or early in 2019.
