Hermanos Serdán International Airport (IATA: PBC, ICAO: MMPB) is an international airport located near Puebla, Puebla, Mexico. It handles national air traffic for the city of Puebla. It also serves as an alternate airport for Mexico City, being part of the metropolitan airport group for the Mexican capital, comprising the airports of Mexico City, Toluca, Cuernavaca and Querétaro.

The airport was inaugurated on 18 November 1985 and since 2001 was given in concession to Operadora Estatal de Aeropuertos (OEA) for operation and development. OEA is a company founded specifically to manage and carry out investments to extend airport facilities. The following entities take part in OEA's establishment:

  • Puebla State Government (26 %)
  • Operadora Internacional de Aeropuertos (49 %)
  • Aeropuertos y Servicios Auxiliares (25 %)

In 2003 the US Trade and Development Agency (TDA) provided a grant for US $550,000 to OEA to enable the completion of a project feasibility study regarding the upgrade of the Puebla International Airport. OEA subsequently retained the services of The Louis Berger Group Inc. from the US to complete the study, which concludes that in the long term the airport might serve up to 15 million passengers annually considering that the city of Puebla is ranked number four among mexican cities based on its population.


Airport development information

In recent years, the Puebla International Airport has showed a notable growth in passenger volume, operations and freight. In 2007 the Logistic Airport Center was opened offering all the facilities for the managing and commercial processing of cargo.

Presently, the airport has reached historical levels in its operative indicators. This situation has permitted members of the Board of Directors to support the decision to begin immediate actions to increase the capacity of the airport in the platforms areas and the Passenger Terminal Building as well.

According to Operadora Estatal de Aeropuertos (OEA), in 2007 Puebla air terminal served 445,800 passengers, whereas in 2008 it received 551,000 passengers, i.e. an increase of 23%

To arrive at Puebla international airport there are two main approaches: the first one is through the Mexico - Puebla toll motorway taking the road out at San Miguel Xoxtla; the second choice is driving along the Cholula - Huejotzingo boulevard to the access road to the airport, just a bit before coming the village of Huejotzingo.

At the moment, the airport is equipped with a 3 position platform of category D and a terminal building with capacity to take care of 400 passengers per hour.

Puebla international airport has set itself the goal of managing at least one million passengers annually in 3 years. This achievement would make of this airport and excellent option as complementary airport to Mexico City. In order to achieve this aim, an expansion executive plan has been designed for the 2008-2011 period.

The new terminal building will be roughly 226% larger than the current one. By investing over USD $ 15 million, it will be possible to serve 1.1 million passengers in one year. This amount might be even higher assuming a proper air operation distribution.

This airport handles two thousand tons a year in textile products, vehicle motor parts, machinery, post pieces, airborne parcels service and perishables such as fruits and flowers.
