Terminal Information – Arriving
Benito Juarez International Airport has two terminals which are connected by light rail and bus. Note that you need a printed boarding pass to use the light rail. Interjet, VivaAerobus, Volaris and Magnicharters usually land at terminal 1 while Aeromexico and Aeromexico Connect usually land at terminal 2.
Public transport is available from both terminals. Terminal 1 is next to the Terminal Aerea subway station, which is on line 5 of the subway. Terminal 2 also has a station, Pantitlan, which is about 700m walk away. Lines serving this station are 1, 5, 9 and A. There's also a Metrobus which runs from both terminals to the city centre. Taxis are available from outside the airport and are a cheap, safe and easy option. Remember to ask for an estimated price before hopping in.
Although you don't need your passport to fly domestic, it's likely that you'll be asked to show some photographic identification: either when you check in or before boarding. We recommend British citizens use their passports.
Try to arrive at the airport no later than one hour before departure. Always check with your airline for information on checking in.
