Expansion and renovation worksEdit

The airport has been recently renovated and expanded in order to meet the growing demand. Some improvements have been added, such as the construction of new hallways inside the terminal to accommodate a larger number of passengers, so that the airport can handle the operations of larger aircraft, such as the Boeing 757.

The terminal exterior and interior have also been renovated, with a completely new architectural style.

The airport is located at the outskirts of the city of Veracruz, in a place known as "Las Bajadas".
