OMA starts expansion project at Monterrey International Airport
Mexican airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, known as OMA (OMAB), started the expansion project at the Monterrey International Airport. With an investment of 4,245M pesos to be executed between 2019 and 2025, the Monterrey airport will increase its capacity by 50% and serve up to 16.5M passengers. The expansion is planned to be carried out in two stages. First phase includes the expansion of the public area and the growth of the check-in areas equipped with 88 fixed and 20 automated counters, as well as the construction of "Wing 1" with 11 boarding gates. Second phase includes a new inspection point with 12 new passenger service lines which will generate a more efficient transit. In addition, "Wing 2" will be built with 15 boarding gates equipped with walkways, as well as the expansion of the national and international baggage claim areas. The airport will also increase to 62 aircraft parking positions. During the construction process, the Monterrey Airport will be fully operational seeking the least possible impact.
