The New Mexico City Airport was for several years the largest work using geosynthetics in the region. This work that occupied an area of almost 5 thousand hectares was going to have a first terminal of 743 thousand square meters by 2020 with the capacity to receive up to 50 million passengers every year, which translates into about 440 thousand flights. and that in its maximum development in 2060 it would have two terminals and six runways that would allow the landing and / or takeoff of up to three planes at the same time, being able to receive up to one million flights a year, which would be equivalent to 120 million passengers , approximately four times more than the current airport. Until its stoppage in 2018, at the NAICM, as it was known, more than 8 million square meters of multiaxial geogrid had already been installed, approximately 11 million m2 of geotextile and more than 70 million linear meters of vertical drains, in stabilization of internal access roads, stabilization of the large foundation slab of the terminal, boarding / landing platforms, control tower and landing strips 2, 3 and 6, making it, perhaps, the largest geosynthetic work in the world.
