Metro Terminal Aérea is a station along Line 5 of the Mexico City Metro.[1][2] It is located in the Venustiano Carranza borough of Mexico City.[1] It serves the Colonia Peñón de los Baños and Colonia Moctezuma 2ª sección neighbourhoods.[1]

The station's logo – a commercial airliner and control tower – and its name are on account of its proximity to the check-in areas of Benito Juárez International Airport Terminal 1.[1][2][3] It was opened on 19 December 1981.[4]

This station has a travel agency and a mural.[1] It is one of the few stations that have a baggage-o-meter (the shape of a baggage screwed to the entrance's wall specifying the maximum size of luggage allowed in the station and on the metro).[citation needed]

Mural named Cuitzeo in honor of pre-Hispanic cultures in Metro Terminal Aerea
