The project also intends to become the first airport outside Europe achieving a neutral carbon footprint (from its FB account in Spanish, translated by me)

New video from FR-EE, the Mexican architectural studio partnering with Foster+Partners in the airport's design (originally posted by GERARDORS):

...hopefully, the real airport will be as close as possible to this beautiful animated 3D render.

The following announcement, from the Airport's Twitter account, says that the 6 airport's runways will be built in a North-South direction (each one will be 5 km long and 60m width). But, it also gives us an idea about the airport location and scale relative to the current airport:

The main terminal's maximum length will be 1,580 m. This will convert it in one of the longest in the World!

"Did you know that the New Mexico City Airport will be the first airport with triple simultaneous operations outside the USA, 3 airplanes will be able to lift or land at the same time"



"Did you know that at the center of the Main Terminal you could easily place an Airbus A380"



"Did you know that the New Airport will triple the water capacity of the area, it will grow form 13 to 38 million cubic meters "

This might be one of the best designed airports now! On par with Shenzhen and Jeddah airports.

There are news about plans to build a magnetic monorail system on a second floor over existing metro lines (line 1 or line B) in order to connect the airport to City center. Additionally, extensions of other existing metro lines are also under analysis.

Let's see what the authorities will decide. This is right now a hot topic on the Mexican thread.

Magnetic monorail? so a maglev? I don't think so.

There have been statements of various politicians regarding extending Line B of the Metro to the new airport or building a conventional monorail from Buenavista station and rumors about extending the Toluca-Mexico city railway (currently under construction) to the airport.

So far the option most likely to be built seems to be the cheapest: Extending line B from Muzquiz station to the new airport. However, as no official tender has been launched we cannot be sure that this is the option that would eventually be built.

The magnetic train is just plain bad reporting from that news outlet. There have been no official statements of that nature.

The most recent statement that was provided by the secretary of communications and transportation is that they are evaluating an express train from NAICM to the Buenavista station at the centre of the city. However there was no specification about the train type or route it would be used.

Anything else is just rumours and wishful thinking from all involved parties.

There isn't yet a final executive project for the transportation to and from the new airport. Although by all comments and rumours we can tell that there are several options being evaluated.

So based on the fact that nothing has been chosen, it is almost guaranteed that when the airport opens there wont be a rail connection?

On the global schedule for the project, the construction of the railway station is slated for late 2018. While the actual rail construction is scheduled for late 2017. There is still time.
