Mexico’s Cancun International Airport is to receive an investment of around Ps1 billion ($90 million) over the next four years.

Around $35 million will go to the construction of a new runway while the rest will be used to enlarge and modernise the terminal building, create new aircraft parking area and improve the access ways.

An airport spokesman says that this decision has been taken after plans to construct a second airport for the region were discarded last year by the regional authorities.

Cancun is among the nine Mexican airports operated by the ASUR consortium in which Danish airports operator Kobenhavns Lufthavne is a participant.
