“A total area of ​​109-66-87,671 hectares of privately owned land is expropriated for reasons of public utility, in favor of the Federation destined for the Secretariat of National Defense, for the construction of the Civil and Military International Airport ‘General Felipe Ángeles’, located in Santa Lucía, State of Mexico”, states the decree.

The decree, issued by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador in the DOF’s evening edition, indicates that the land will be handed over to the Sedena, which is in charge of the construction of the airport.

It establishes that the Sedena, charged to its budget, will cover the amount of compensation that under the terms of the Law must be paid to those who prove their legitimate right, in accordance with the appraisals issued by the Institute of Administration and Appraisals of National Assets.

AMLO decrees to expropriate 109 hectares to build the Santa Lucía airport

Although the land is privately owned, it turned out to be “adequate and suitable for the works and facilities necessary for the construction of the airport” due to its strategic location.

The Master Plan for the new airport includes the relocation of military facilities and the expansion of the project surface, such as acoustic damping areas, security, airport infrastructure, complementary and interconnection services.

It also considers the Santa Lucía base “the axis of the Metropolitan Airport System”, as a “strategic node of airport communication”.
