Mexican Airport Details
Mexico is served by several international airports including Cancun, Monterrey General, Guadalajara Miguel Hidalgo Y Costilla, Albuquerque and Mexico City Benito Juarez. Hilton has recently opened a five star hotel near the new Terminal 2 of Benito Juarez, under its Doubletree brand. Meanwhile the airport itself offers a shuttle service between its two terminals , transfer time being around five minutes. The airport is on line 5 of the city’s metro service but this can be very crowded at rush hour. Major hotels run shuttle minibusses to the airport and prepaid taxi tickets are available from the Taxi Autorizado in the Transpotacion Terrrestre booths in the baggage reclaim areas. Because Mexico can be dangerous passengers are strongly advised to take an authorised taxi, which are white and mustard coloured, with an airplane logo, and to lock the taxi doors when inside.
Benito Juarez International also offers a variety of restaurants, as well as fast food outlets, bars and cafeterias, some of which are open 24 hours. There is also a wide range of shops including handicrafts and duty free. The airport is well equipped for disabled passengers.
Guadalajara International Airport has recently undergone a major expansion, though the domestic and international terminals are still located in the same complex a short distance from each other. The Servicio Collectivo, the airport minibus, meets all flights outside the terminal building and takes passengers to the city centre every hour; the journey time is approximately 35 minutes. Authorised taxis are available and can be booked and prepaid at a counter in the terminal. There are three banks and ATMs, a post office and a Bureau de Change located in the airport, as well as fax and internet services. Free Wi-Fi connections are available in some restaurants and cafes.
