Obrador: Mexican construction airport companies were compensated
Work interrupted due to corruption and geological risks
Today, Wednesday, August 28, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador stated, during a press conference, that all companies involved in the $ 13 billion construction of the Mexico City airport cancelled at the end of October were compensated: company payments would have ended on Tuesday August 27.
Lopez Obrador stopped the work on the new airport due to the fact that it had been subjected to numerous corruption phenomena and that it would be in a geologically insecure place (see AVIONEWS).
The Nuevo Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México (Naicm) would have been a gigantic construction and the control tower, the runways and a terminal had been erected before the interruption. Once completed, the airport would have the capacity to accommodate around 125 million passengers a year.
