Cancun International Airport’s terminal 4, used by both domestic and international travelers, a total of 14 gates, is designed to serve up to nine million people annually.

Commissioned in 2017, this is the latest terminal in the airport. It serves JetBlue Airways, Frontier Airlines, Southwest Airlines as well as United States’ Sun Country Airlines. Apart from receiving travelers from America, it also welcomes passengers from Europe.

When can we expect to see expansion work on Cancun International Airport’s terminal 4?

Considered as an important terminal at the Cancun International Airport, receiving visitors from the US, the facility would be augmented in 2024, in order to accommodate passengers and more flights.

It is said that there have been discussions about establishing an onsite hotel as well as another lounge service.

Terminal 4 serves economical carriers from Mexico, while the 3rd terminal handles full service airlines from the US.

Renovation on terminal 1

The Cancun International Airport owner also announced terminal one’s renovation plans, with seven gates. This terminal is entirely used for private as well as charter flights, since it is the region’s main terminal. It is mainly used by luxury travelers to the region. Also, small regional airlines out of Belize also use the terminal.

This year alone, Cancun International Airport has been used by more than 30 million travelers, and Aeropuertos del Sureste plans to maintain the infrastructure up to standards for passengers all over the globe by carrying out renovation works, and expansion works.

Warning to the visitors

The renovation work is expected to cause some difficulty for the visitors traveling to Cancun as well as the Mexican Caribbean. As a result, there could be delays in aircrafts and disruptions of services to travelers in the terminal.
