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.
