The construction of the passenger terminal at Mexico City's new international airport will require an investment of 70bn pesos (US$3.7bn), according to future airport concessionaire GACM. 

Some consortiums may be formed to develop the works for this project due to the high investment amount, Raúl González Apaolaza, corporate director of infrastructure at GACM, was quoted as saying by local newspaper Reforma.

GACM launched on May 4 an international tender to build the terminal building, and said that 1.5bn pesos were budgeted for the work. The winner will be announced on December 9.

The terminal building will be built in an area of 760,000m2.

GACM has said it will launch more than 40 tenders for the project this year alone.

The airport will have a footprint of around 4,430ha and eventually handle up to 120mn passengers a year. The final price tag is estimated at 169bn pesos. Of the total, 127bn pesos will be allocated to infrastructure, 17bn pesos to water treatment and management, 20bn pesos to design, engineering and project management, and 1.7bn pesos for social projects.
