Del Bajío International Airport, officially known as Aeropuerto Internacional de Guanajuato (Guanajuato International Airport) (IATA: BJX, ICAO: MMLO) is an international airport located in Silao, Guanajuato, Mexico. It handles national and international air traffic of the area that includes the city of León and the state capital, Guanajuato. Guanajuato International Airport is an important connecting point for some flights from Mexico City to the United States. The general interior director announced plans to build a cargo terminal and for the construction of a second runway. The facility replaced the San Carlos Airport which is now part of the urban center of León. In late 2015, work began in the construction of a taxiway to be running parallel to the whole length of the runway. In August 2016, the airport opened its first and only VIP lounge, while in January 2017, work began in the modernization of the whole terminal, including expansion of the departures level as well as relocation of the customs and immigration check. Work was completed in mid 2018.
