Every year, the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) updates the Airport Use Fee (TUA), which corresponds to the charge made by airports for the use of their facilities. The fee is not part of the formal ticket price, but is included in the final cost. Currently the airlines separate the rate from the cost of the flight to give greater transparency in prices.
According to the Official Gazette of the Federation, published at the beginning of December, the TUA of the AICM will increase by 7.7% by 2023. In domestic flights the increase is 2.02 dollars, which added to the previous rate results in 28.04 dollars. Regarding international flights, the new TUA is 53.24 dollars.
The rate is calculated based on the Consumer Price Index published by the Reserve Bank of the United States of America. For this reason, the cost is calculated in dollars, however, the AICM is the institution in charge of calculating the prices according to the monthly average of the change that is published in the Official Gazette of the Federation.
The validity of the new rate begins on January 1, 2023 and will be renewed for 2024. Currently, 200 million dollars from this rate are allocated to pay the bonds issued for the construction of the NAIM in Texcoco, which was canceled to build the Felipe Ángeles International Airport.
In the more than 70 years of operation, the Mexico City International Airport has received different names. Between them Central Air Port of Mexico City, Central Airport of Mexico City, Mexico AirportBenito Juárez Airport and the current Benito Juárez Mexico City International Airport (AIBJCM).
