Monterrey International Airport, (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de Monterrey, IATA: MTY, ICAO: MMMY), ceremonial name General Mariano Escobedo International Airport, is an international airport located in Apodaca, Nuevo León, Mexico. Together with Del Norte International Airport, the airport handles domestic and international operations for the city of Monterrey and its metropolitan area.
There are almost 300 daily flights to more than 35 destinations in Mexico, United States and Latin America. With the highest traffic in northern Mexico, Monterrey International Airport is also Mexico's 5th and Latin America's 12th busiest airport. It had one of the fastest influx growth in recent years; but as a result of the COVID-19 contingencies, it handled 4,994,170 passengers in 2020, a decrease of 55.32% from 2019, that received 11,176,555 passengers.
Terminal A consists of a building comprising check-in facilities, baggage claiming, shopping areas, restaurants, customs, airport and airline offices, as many other services, while the satellite building connected via tunnels comprises all the VIP and waiting lounges, migration among other services as well as obviously the boarding gates. The Satellite building, is divided into two concourses, North Concourse for domestic flights (Gates A1-A15), while South Concourse comprises all the international flights that operate into the airport (Gates B3-B8). Several flights are delayed day by day due to the lack of free contact and even remote positions, as the ones capable of handling large aircraft such as the Boeing 787. Nevertheless, Terminal C and Terminal B work as a relief system for this terminal. There are future plans to remodel and expand the Satellite building, adding at least 4 new jetways and 3 remote positions.
Terminal B is considered as the second most modern air facility in the country (only behind the Mexico City's Terminal 2), it was opened in September 2010. The terminal comprise 8 gates, 6 of which are equipped with jetways and 2 apron-doors which might be used by Aeroméxico's feeder airline Aeroméxico Connect. The terminal house all operations of the SkyTeam member airlines, similar to Terminal 2 in Mexico City International Airport. The airport terminal is able to handle up to 2 million passengers per year, and allows the airport to free some slots for new airlines to operate into Terminal A.
Terminal C, inaugurated on November 30, 2006, houses the operations from low-cost carrier serving the airport, VivaAerobus. This terminal works completely independent to Terminal A, opposite to Terminal B functionality.
"Air Cargo Terminal' was recently launched and has 6 hectares (15 acres) for operations. Courier companies operating nationally and abroad, notably FedEx, DHL, UPS, Estafeta.
The airport resides at an elevation of 1280 feet (390 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 11/29 with an asphalt surface measuring 3,000 by 45 metres (9,843 ft × 148 ft). A second runway which is rarely used is designated 16/34 and also has an asphalt surface with a stretch of 1,801 by 30 metres (5,909 ft × 98 ft). The main runway, 11/29, has an ILS approach system and has its own VHF omnidirectional radio range (VOR) and DME station. It is also capable of handling aircraft such as the Boeing 747-400, but due to the lack of remote positions, this airport is mainly used by smaller aircraft. In September 2014, Monterrey commenced its first intercontinental flight in years when Aeromexico began flying its Boeing 787 Dreamliner four days a week to Tokyo-Narita as a fuel stop to flights between Mexico City International Airport and Tokyo-Narita. Aeromexico stated that the flight would last while Tijuana International Airport, the usual stop between the Aeromexico flight to Tokyo, made improvements to its runway. Monterrey was selected due to its importance to the country's economy and for being a popular business destination. Later on, Aeromexico's flight from Mexico City to Tokyo-Narita was upgraded into a direct flight, with once a day flights leaving from Mexico City. the Tokyo flights from Monterrey have since been discontinued.
Due to the growing Korean population in Monterrey, Aeroméxico also operated a direct flight from Monterrey to Seoul Incheon airport. This was the airport's first intercontinental flight since the discontinuation of the Tokyo-Narita route operating through Monterrey. The flights to Seoul were also discontinued.
