Toluca International (TLC) Airport
Toluca International TLC Airport Overview
Toluca International Airport TLC (officially called 'Vuela Toluca Aeropuerto International'') at an elevation of 2,575 meters, is the main alternate airport for the Mexico City International Airport, and the only Mexican Airport with a Cat II landing system, enabling aircraft to land in low visibility conditions. Even though it handles mostly domestic flights, it has experienced phenomenal growth up to 2011, when Volaris Airlines ceased to serve Toluca - resulting in a drastic passenger count drop.
The Airport is located in the state capital of Toluca, State of Mexico, and is accessible from Santa Fe & Toluca via Paseo Tollocan, Blvd. Miguel German; from Naucalpan via Toluca Naucalpan, Blvd. Miguel German. With the longest runway in the country (4,200 meters), Toluca Airport is only 40 km from Mexico's most important business center, the Santa Fe financial district, and only a 55-minute ride to downtown Mexico City.
NOTE: While in 2012 the passenger count dropped to 972,414 (down from 1.5 million in 2011), Toluca International Airport is now a member of the National Air Transport (CANAERO) and has already extended its airline services AeroMexico, InterJet, Spirit, VivaAirobus and Volaris. It is expected that passenger count for 2013 will return to its former level.
