Not only is it expected that the new Felipe Angeles International Airport (AIFA) allows greater connectivity for the entire Valley of Mexico, the detonation of a new development pole is also projected in the region and focused on different economic activities, revealed the market research division of Newmark.

“The accessibility and connectivity of the area with the rest of the metropolitan area will allow the concentration of a new development pole that will be equipped with all the services to be able to concentrate airport, commercial and industrial activities,” indicated the new study published this March 17 and which is in tune with the start of operations of the new air power plant.

According to the company’s report, there is a significant amount of reserve surrounding the area, such as an area that contemplates the construction of approximately 70,000 homes, as well as 64 hectares of urban and airport expansion. There are also other areas with low-impact industry-focused land uses (such as food, paper, and accessory and electronics manufacturing).

All of this will encourage the consolidation of a new industrial zone in which not only the Tizayuca zone will be promoted, but also a more extensive corridor that encompasses the Tecamac and Zumpango.

“A point to underline is that the Zumpango and Tecámac area had a boom in housing construction a few years ago; however, said dwelling is part of a dormitory town that also began to report abandonment. Approximately 50,000 homes in a state of abandonment are reported in both municipalities. That said, the impact of the airport in the area, as well as the multiple infrastructure works that accompany it, will give the opportunity for the home to be rescued, in addition to having a source of jobs,” said Vianey Macías, an analyst at the Newmark’s market research division.

This detonation of more infrastructure will help the population not have to travel to the main metropolitan areas of the region (such as Mexico City).

At the same time, there are three other areas of the Mexico state that will benefit, these are Tepotzotlán and Ecatepec; each of these has a differentiated vocation.

The reason for this, the study underlined, is because the airport is located just on the southeastern limit of Zumpango, adjacent to Ecatepec and Tepotzotlán.

“With the creation of the new airport, the interest of the authorities for the regeneration of housing is generated. According to information from the federal government, in the seven municipalities surrounding the Felipe Ángeles airport there are a total of 250,000 abandoned homes, out of a total of 650,000 nationwide. Only in the municipalities of Tecámac and Zumpango, the number of homes in a situation of abandonment add up to more than 50,000 homes, of which the goal is to rescue at least 40%”, the analysis deepened.


The head of the Government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo, also assured that the Felipe Ángeles International Airport is not only reconfiguring the mobility of the Valley of Mexico, but is also generating a different economic dynamic, since it created another metropolitan area that will accompany you to the capital.

“They are going to be left with a square eye when they see the airport, it is an impressive work, really something extraordinary, extraordinary; because it is not only the airport itself, its terminal, the control tower, but everything that was done around the AIFA”, which has to do with military installations, the museum, hotels, schools, hospitals; that is to say, in three years practically a city plus an airport was built”, he underlined.
