Benito Juarez International Airport

Benito Juarez International Airport, (IATA Code: MEX) named after the great Mexican leader Benito Juarez, is Mexico's main international and domestic getaway.

Benito Juarez International is in Mexico City, Mexico.

There is an ongoing controversy concerning the airport, because the Mexican government headed by President Vicente Fox wants to move it to an area owned by Indian citizens.

In 1979, a Western Airlines DC-10 plane coming in from Los Angeles crash landed in the airport, killing all but 15 of the 150 passengers on that flight, and in 1985, a Mexicana Boeing 727, collapsed into a street after blowing a tire minutes before landing there, killing all 166 passengers and crew in the plane.

Benito Juarez International Airport has 1 Terminal:
