The number of passengers traveling by plane in Mexico will grow at an average rate of 4.1% each year in the upcoming years, estimated the International Air Transport Association (IATA). The President and General Director of IATA, Tony Tyler, assured that therefore, perspectives for Mexican aviation are very good and the country has a good position in the region of Latin America, besides the favorable expectations with the construction of the new airport. In order to keep this favorable outlook, it is necessary to develop the new airport as fast as possible and be especially vigilant about the prices of operation for airlines. "The outlook in Mexico is great, it is excellent, we are excited especially about the project for the new airport in Mexico City; it is important for the Government to take steps to build the Airport." In addition, having an airport like the one prospected will help the sector enormously, Tyler said, since Mexico is a very large country and it needs effective, rapid connectivity across domestic territory, but also with the rest of the world, which is why this project is so favorable.
