Mexico City, the storied capital of Mexico is serviced by the Benito Juarez International Airport (MEX). This is a key aviation hub for Central and South America, and the busiest airport in terms of traffic in 2016 for all of Latin America. If you are one of the 19 million passengers passing through this facility, you will find all the major amenities you’ll need whilst travelling. Information desks, currency exchange services, cash machines, a medical centre, pharmacies, plus free WiFi throughout the airport, make this a convenient travel port.
For the hungry travellers, there are lots of dining options, from sit-down restaurants where you can relax with your meal, bars where you can enjoy a glass of wine, cafes where you can take the whole family, and fast food restaurants where you can pick something quick up if you’re on the go. Shoppers will also find plenty to keep them occupied, from the large duty-free selection, to the fashion retailers, gift shops, travel accessory stores, book outlets, and newsagents.
There are no direct flights to Mexico City from the airports in Australia, as this is a long-haul flight, which will usually require one or two layovers. Airlines that fly this route are usually United, LATAM, Air Canada, Delta, American Airlines, British Airways and Qantas.
· Take the Av. Rio Churubusco, then the Eje 1 Ote, and the Mexico 113 Freeway to the centre of the city. Skyscanner’s car hire search tool can help you browse and reserve a car for your stay in Mexico, but if you’d rather wait and sort out the booking when you arrive at the airport, you can locate the car rental offices in the arrivals area of both the domestic and the international terminals.
· Mexico City has an excellent Metro link between the airport and the city centre, with the journey only taking about 20 minutes, for a cheap and cheerful fare of 3MXN (20 cents). There are also buses that operate to the airport, though these can take much longer, especially in traffic, with journey times generally taking over an hour. Airport transfers are a good alternative if you don’t fancy taking public transport.
· Taxis aren’t terribly expensive, from 300-400MXN ($20-28), but can take 40 minutes to an hour depending on how bad the traffic is.
