Access by public transport
The metro (tel: (55) 5709 1133; www.metro.df.gob.mx) is cheap and quick but crowded at rush hour. To reach the airport station, marked with an ‘M’ sign, turn left out of the terminal and walk past the car park; the airport metro station is on line 5. For central Mexico City, change at Pantitlan (one stop) for line 1 and travel to Insurgentes.
Major hotels run shuttle minibuses from the airport. There are also regular airport buses to various destinations in and around Mexico City, departing from the international section of Terminal 1.
Pre-paid taxi tickets are available from Taxi Autorizado in the Transportacion Terrestre (Ground Transportation) booth in baggage reclaim. Travellers are strongly advised to take an authorised (white and mustard with an aeroplane logo), pre-paid taxi and always lock taxi doors when inside.
There are several information desks in both the international and domestic areas of the terminals. There is a tourist information office (tel: (55) 2786 9002) in lounge B, which provides information on Mexico City and can help arrange accommodation.
The much delayed Terminal 2 finally began operations in November 2007, serving both international and domestic flights. A new 5-star hotel adjacent to the new terminal is planned.
