Then you have other very small regional airlines that are very expensive like Aeromar and TAR, but overalll Mexican aviation is not low coast, its kind of expensive flying withing Mexico compared to EU or USA.
Obviously, the term LCC these days aren't applicable to the consumer point of view. Nevertheless, Interjet, Volaris and VivaAerobus remain low cost airlines in that the overheads and financial side of things remain lower in cost than full service carriers

Hydraulic infrastructure started a few weeks ago.

The official start of the project will be in the beginnings of 2015

New Airport is a Corrupt Business

Unfortunately we have one of the most corrupt governments in history at the time in Mexico. Reality is starting to hit with a decaying economy dependent on falling oil prices and where an enormous amount of public funds is stolen by politicians in the president Enrique Peña Nieto gov.

Just like the high-speed train from Mexico City to Toluca had to be cancelled after several scandals involving conflicts of interest directly between the president and also the state secretary Luis Vide Garay with specific construction contracts, the airport project has huge risk of having severe problems.

Scandal Over Mexican President’s House Affecting Plans for New Airport

Now fortunately the project, which has been arbitrary decided upon from the start, is being questioned in the senate of Mexico. It seems it has been a huge business for a few influential groups, and nothing more.

50 senators call out a conflict of interest in new airport project

I would also like to add that although the "winning" project is cool it's nothing compared to that of the Mexican architect Alberto Kalach, 2 decade in the making, which includes rescuing the water bodies of the city. Clearly Kalach isn't the son in law of Carlos Slim (richest man in Mexico and some years, the world) like Fernando Romero, or a superstar architect like Lord Foster. For those reasons I wish this project gets cancelled until we have a less corrupt gov -- may take a while.

But even Kalach says "There was no competition, the winner had been decided way in advance. I think the fact it was given to Foster is SPLENDID, he's a great architect. But for a great project you need a good architect and a good client. The latter we haven't seen at all." http://youtu.be/-sdGqgymaR0?t=19m37s

Considering that the existing airport is at capacity, Mexico can't really afford to put the construction of the new airport on hold.

Correct, due to altitude and short runways at MEX long-haul from AM to stop in Tijuana before flying to PVG or NRT. Also flights to Europe are not possible during the day due to heat/altitude/short runway.

Do not worry, current government is working hard on this project, the most important in the last half century at least!

From El Financiero Newspaper.

Mexico Speeds Up Budget for New Airport in Capital


Mexico, Apr 27 (Prensa Latina) The Mexican Government speeded up the expenditure of the initial works of the new International Airport in Mexico City, which is today one of the most emblematic works boosted by President Enrique Peña Nieto.

The current federal administration spent almost $370 million USD on hiring services, public works and other areas related to the execution of the airport works.

Mexico City's Airport Group reported that the investments go from technical advisory and training for the program of countrymen labor force, besides design, architecture, management and projects of runways, platforms and taxiing.

The outlays include hiring a social witness that will testify the selection of the company in charge of the executive project of runways and platforms, as well as another witness for the project of extraction of temporary ground supports.

Both contracts went to the Mexican Academy of Engineering.

From Reuters:

Mexico wants China involved in new airport after train blunder-source


Mexico is trying to get Chinese state-run companies involved in the construction of a new $11 billion airport as it seeks to make up for a tainted rail tender that soured relations with Beijing, a source with knowledge of the government plan said.

Mexico announced in September it would build the new Mexico City airport to relieve congestion and transform the capital into a major regional hub with six runways eventually serving 120 million passengers a year.

The airport is Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's flagship infrastructure project. The other, a high-speed train linking Mexico City with the city of Queretaro, was originally awarded to a consortium led by state-run China Railway Construction Corp (CRCC). But it was later put on ice indefinitely - a move that shocked Beijing, officials say.

Senior Mexican officials believe that China could be assuaged by involving some of its state-run companies in the airport construction, said the source, who asked to remain anonymous because he is not authorized to speak publicly.

"In some levels of (China's) government there is deep disappointment and a deep lack of confidence toward Mexico," the person said. "The ball is in our court, and we have to show willingness with new projects."

CRCC had the $3.75 billion rail contract revoked just days before it emerged that Pena Nieto's wife had bought a luxury house from one of the Mexican firms in the winning consortium.

Subsequent media reports showed the president and his finance minister had also either bought or used homes from the same government contractor.

Mexico tendered the rail project again in January, and CRCC was widely expected to win. But a sharp drop in the price of oil, which funds about a third of Mexico's federal budget, forced the government to suspend the project.

After CRCC lost out, a delegation led by Mexican transport and communications minister Gerardo Ruiz Esparza told Chinese officials during a trip to Beijing that Mexico would welcome Chinese involvement in the airport, the source said.

"This is kind of paying a favor to the Chinese companies who were denied the Mexico-Queretaro train," said Daniel Avila, a senior member of the Mexican Senate's Asia-Pacific committee from the center-right National Action Party.

The source added Mexico believes Chinese firms would make a neat fit with Norman Foster, the chosen architect for the Mexico City airport who designed Terminal 3 of Beijing's airport.

China likes the idea, he said, but no decisions have yet been made on which state-run company would be chosen to bid for the upcoming tenders. Ruiz Esparza expects construction of the airport to get underway in September or October this year.

Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said she did not know about the airport project, but added: "We have always said that we support able Chinese companies to go out and have cooperation with other countries on infrastructure construction and building."

Several Chinese companies with experience in large infrastructure projects including China Camc Engineering Co. and China Communications Construction Co. did not reply to requests for comment.

Mexico is still weighing how to divide up work for the massive project, which includes contracts of varying sizes. While some airport contracts have already been assigned, the most juicy construction tenders are still under wraps.

Chinese companies would still have to win any tender, but Mexico could ask certain firms to participate, the source said.

"As far as I know, there's no specific invitation out to anybody," said transport ministry spokesman Rodolfo Gonzalez. "The desire is that everyone who is best equipped, who has the best technical and financing capabilities, should participate."

The project, financed by public and private funds, is scheduled to have three runways and serve some 50 million passengers a year by 2020.

Since taking office in 2012, Pena Nieto has sought to redraw Mexico's relationship with China, a long-time manufacturing rival, and wean Mexico off its reliance on the U.S. market by luring much more Chinese investment.

Between 2000 and 2013, according to Mexican government data, total foreign direct investment from China in Mexico was $281 million - less than half the amount invested by Taiwan.

Chinese investment in Mexico has been just a tiny part of the total for Latin America and the Caribbean, which reached $14.4 billion in 2013, according to official Chinese data compiled by U.S.-based consultancy Rhodium Group.

Some preliminary works have already started. They include ground mechanics studies, construction of airport's perimeter wall, building of internal roads, temporary drainage works, etc.

About the Zona Federal del Lago de Texcoco: Looking at the aerial imagery of the area, part of Mexico City's drainage system is on the former lakebed. I wonder how the new airport will affect that drainage system? Also, if this new airport is to be developed in the Lake Texcoco Federal Zone, then will anything else be developed on the LTFZ or will it be just the airport?

As far as I know the new airport won't be built on or close to the city's drainage system.

However, there were a series of water pipelines on the area of this new airport, which were used to prevent dust clouds from the dry lakebed. These are now being removed as part of the project preliminary works.

On the other hand, the project environmental friendliness comprises the development of extensive new regulatory water basins and green areas on the lakebed. They will also prevent floods and and dust clouds in the city.
