Maybe they can add some decent priced food this time in Cancun airport. I mean 150 pesos for a plate of Chinese food is ridiculous. I think Starbucks has the most normal prices and that is not saying much.

I can't imagine how much rent is in the airport. That obviously has a lot to do with the high prices.

When people stop paying those prices, they will either have to lower their prices...or close.

Problem is, folks on vacation know these prices are expected in the airports they visit and will pay them for the convenience. The busier the airport the higher the prices. Competition is our only friend...

There are airports that have what is called "street pricing"and it is actually the same prices. The same prices that you would find just a few blocks outside the airport. It is possible. I always avoid buying any food in CUN because it is too much. Rent can be high but so is rent in a mall or other places in the world.
There is a secret restaurant between terminal 2 and 3 that employees eat at that must be cheap. Just walk between the terminals close to the buildings to find it.

Despite efforts to curb Asur airport in the Riviera Maya , the project gain momentum again last week during the conduct of the International Tourism Fair Fitur, in Madrid Spain .
In the international tourism event, the holder of the Secretary of Tourism, Claudia Ruiz Massieu , presented the project jointly with transpeninsular Train, as part of the communications infrastructure platform that will establish the federal government to promote tourism in Mexico .
This caught my attention, because at the time was that the draft of the Riviera Maya airport to be constructed in the town of Tulum, going to be on the waiting list until further notice.
However, the project is more alive than ever. According to information from the Ministry of Communications and Transportation , SCT, in the first instance the Riviera Maya airport will be established once the invitation to tender Train transpeninsular out.
This means that once again would be seeing light between the months of March or April, according to the times you drive the SCT in the bidding process of the train, which is closely linked to the terminal.
This is because the federal government aims to boost the tourist trade in the South East and has been considered the need for an airport in Quintana Roo more to increase the flow of visitors to what is known as the Mayan world.
For now, the consortium of Grupo Mexico and Pacific Airport Group , and Haig Tradeco Gulesserian , are those who have already expressed interest to be part of the Riviera Maya airport project.
Note that in the case of Southeast Airports , Asur , can not participate in the bidding because the opinion of the Federal Competition Commission, CFC , in the sense that the dealership can not have action to prevent monopolistic acts.
Following that ruling , Fernando Chico Pardo , president of Asur , reiterated its position considering the Riviera Maya airport as an unnecessary project which would remove 30 percent of the market .
The Cancun airport has the capacity to handle 30 million passengers annually and currently reports an annual flow of 13 million , which speaks to the terminal is underutilized and the Riviera Maya airport come into a region with excessive airport infrastructure capacity .
Also, since 2011 the Ministry of Communications and Transport ( SCT ) has approved the documentation of the first and second consortium to participate in the construction, management, operation and development of the airport will be located in the municipality of Tulum , Quintana Roo.

If an article, from what paper?

Googal translate. Todays online Por esto.

A pesar de los esfuerzos de Asur por frenar el aeropuerto de la Riviera Maya, el proyecto volvió a cobrar fuerza la semana anterior durante la realización de la Feria Internacional de Turismo, Fitur, en Madrid España.
En el encuentro turístico internacional, la titular de la secretaria de Turismo, Claudia Ruiz Massieu, presentó el proyecto de forma conjunta con el Tren Transpeninsular, como parte de la plataforma de infraestructura en comunicaciones que establecerá el gobierno federal para impulsar la actividad turística en México.
Este hecho llamó la atención, ya que en su momento se había que el proyecto del aeropuerto de la Riviera Maya, que se pretende construir en el municipio de Tulum, iba a quedar en lista de espera hasta nuevo aviso.
Sin embargo, el proyecto está más vivo que nunca. De acuerdo con información de la Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes, SCT, en primera instancia el aeropuerto de la Riviera Maya se establecerá una vez que salga la convocatoria de licitación del Tren Transpeninsular.
Lo anterior significa que estaría viendo una vez más luz entre los meses de marzo o abril, según los tiempos que maneje la SCT en el proceso de licitación del tren, el cual está muy ligado a la terminal aérea.
Esta situación se debe a que el gobierno federal pretende impulsar la actividad del turismo en el sureste del país y se ha considerado la necesidad de tener un aeropuerto más en Quintana Roo para acrecentar el flujo de visitantes hacia lo que se conoce como el mundo maya.
Por ahora, los consorcios formados por Grupo México y Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico, Tradeco y Haig Gulesserian, son los que ya han expresado su interés para ser parte del proyecto del aeropuerto de la Riviera Maya.
Cabe señalar que en el caso de Aeropuertos del Sureste, Asur, no puede participar en la licitación debido al dictamen de la Comisión Federal de Competencia, CFC, en el sentido de que la concesionaria no puede tener acción para evitar actos monopólicos.
A raíz de ese dictamen, Fernando Chico Pardo, presidente de Asur, reiteró su postura de considerar el aeropuerto de la Riviera Maya como un proyecto innecesario que vendría a quitarles 30 por ciento del mercado.
El aeropuerto de Cancún tiene capacidad para movilizar 30 millones de pasajeros al año y actualmente reporta un flujo anual de 13 millones, lo cual habla de que la terminal está subutilizada y el aeropuerto de la Riviera Maya entraría en una región con infraestructura aeroportuaria sobrada de capacidad.
Asimismo, desde el 2011 la Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT) aprobó la documentación del primer y segundo consorcio para participar en la construcción, administración, operación y explotación del aeropuerto que se localizará en el municipio de Tulum, Quintana Roo.

At least twice I had a flight from USA or Canada unable to take off because it couldn't arrive due to congestion at CUN. Once it was a 60 minute delay and once it was 90. It makes me a bit sceptical of ASUR's claim that they are way under capacity. Or maybe they are saying that they have a competence problem instead of a capacity problem?

It would be fun to have a betting pool as to when another airport serving the Riviera Maya will open for business. Course we'd need someone young to keep tabs and allow the rest of us to make testamentary gifts to any potential winnings to our children.

TULUM, 3 September.- While nationally the federal government announced major infrastructure works, the proposed International Airport Riviera Maya is almost buried, together with the final stroke transpeninsular Train is not defined, since "Cancun entrepreneurs only fighting for their interests, "without realizing that the benefit would be regional in nature, according to the president of the College of Engineers and Architects of Tulum, Manuel Aznar Pavón.
The specialist said that the airport was not only a work in tourism, but a necessity to any risk, because increased visitor arrivals, it is important to have the ability to evict when this hurricane.
He said federal authorities have not informed if canceled the project or if they will continue the process, therefore, this situation remains on the lookout for investors who wish to settle in Tulum to provide the services that businesses require terminal air.
Referring to Train transpeninsular, Pavón Aznar said that "it is necessary" to pass through and reach Coba Punta Venado, because it would give economic boom to Tulum and Playa del Carmen, but "Cancun employers see only their own interests" without realizing it may be a future project for the area.
"Under pressure from employers, federal authorities should allow the full stretch, ie, the train arrives at Punta Venado and then to Cancun, since the fact that bypasses Tulum and Playa del Carmen would be a big mistake in terms of the strategy of development of the Riviera Maya ", he said.
If realized these projects, he continued, would have a dynamism in the economy, more foreign exchange reach, because every day more visitors arrive to Tulum, which would generate welfare for many families in the region, resources for entrepreneurs and economic stability.
Finally, the president of the College of Engineers and Architects of Tulum indicated that the municipality requires more investment in works and services, as many families are coming to live in this tourist resort, because they see it as a point of development in the future .
