Cheap Flights to Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla

Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla overview

Guadalajara International Airport, also referred to as Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla International Airport, is situated 16km (10 miles) south of the city centre of bustling Guadalajara. With almost seven million passengers in 2010, it is Mexico’s third-busiest airport. Flights to Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla International Airport come in from Mexico and the US.

In 2007 the airport underwent major expansion and renovation, including the construction of an additional terminal concourse, four new taxiways and a multi-level parking complex; all of which have doubled the airport’s handling capacity and improved operations on all levels. Long queues are still common, but developments are set to resolve the issue.

Guadalajara International is a relatively efficient airport with friendly and helpful staff and, with renovations taking place, it’s going from strength to strength. Travellers may look forward to seeing it compete with top international airports in the not-too-distant future.
