New International Airport for Cabo San Lucas

Date Published:

Perfect timing of Cabo’s new airport as FITURCA focuses on New York market....

As air passengers steadily increase, it makes sense that Cabo gets a new airport.

It also makes sense that it’s in Cabo San Lucas this time. Because this is not just a new international airport. It’s a second international airport. Intended to complement the existing services offered in San Jose del Cabo Aiport.  The new terminal will increase Cabo’s air capacity by up to a million passengers in the short term.

The timing and location of the new airport goes hand in hand with the construction, already underway, of 12000 new rooms on the Pacific side of Cabo. Clearly an airport is part of the necessary infrastructure required to support this development. 

Director of Los Cabos Tourism Board, (FITURCA) Rodrigo Esponda, confirms one of the key target markets is  New York - “We are working hard with our partners in New York to attract more visitors. Right now, we are focusing on two main demographics. The first is 30-40-year old professionals, who have the means to come and enjoy the whole luxury experience offered by high-end resorts in Cabo. The second group are families, who can come and enjoy the wide range of fun activities, nature and water sports.”

In time, the new airport will be able to handle up to 10 million passengers. But this will happen in phases and may take up to 5 years. Current expectations are that the new terminal will be able to handle up to a million new passengers in phase one.
