Toluca International Airport, officially Licenciado Adolfo López Mateos International Airport (IATA: TLC, ICAO: MMTO) is an international airport in Toluca, State of Mexico, Mexico. It is part of the Mexico City Metropolitan Airport Group, and it is being improved and promoted to handle some traffic for the city of Toluca, but it also serves as a low-cost carrier airport for Mexico City, serving Interjet and VivaAerobus, but in the past at different times also by Volaris and Aeromexico. The airport is named after President Adolfo López Mateos.
It is considered as the main alternate airport for Mexico City International Airport since it is only 30 minutes or 40 km away from the Santa Fe financial district and has the longest runway of any airport in Mexico.
The airport went from serving 145,000 passengers in 2002, to 3,200,000 in 2007 and 4,300,000 in 2008. It used to be a hub for Volaris, but the company announced on March 8, 2011 that its hub in Toluca would switch to Guadalajara. Interjet also moved the bulk of its operations to Mexico City. As a result, the passenger traffic got significantly reduced: from 1,161,064 passengers in 2013 to 691,712 in 2018.
The airport was reduced from four terminals to two after all domestic operations were handled at the Domestic Terminal. Before 2007, Interjet and Volaris had each one independent terminal, plus Terminal 1 (now Domestic Terminal) and the International Terminal. Recent renovations have expanded both the terminals and apron, making the airport capable of handling an excess of 6 million passengers each year.
