Boulevard Puerto Aéreo is a station on the Mexico City Metro.[1][2] It is located in the northeast of Mexico City, near the western perimeter of the Benito Juárez International Airport.[1] It lies alongs Line 1.[1][2]

The station logo depicts the nearby avenue with the same name, Boulevard Puerto Aéreo.[1][2] The station was opened on 5 September 1969.[3]

This station was formerly known as Metro Aeropuerto, and its logo was an aeroplane.[1] Nearby were the former facilities of the old Mexico City airport, which were closed down and rebuilt some distance to the north.[1] However, the station retained the name "Aeropuerto" for many years, causing no end of confusion to out-of-town visitors looking for the airport stop, which is Metro Terminal Aérea. To avoid further mistakes, the Metro authorities changed its name and logo in 1997.[1]
