How to go to downtown by metro from Mexico city airport during a layover.

  • Mexico city is becoming one of the major connecting points for flights to Latin America and most flights have to connect from here to other Latin American cities. Luckily the airport is close to downtown Mexico city and there's a metro line running from the airport to downtown Mexico.

From terminal 2

  • If you fly with Aeromexico you'll arrive at terminal 2. There's a point to leave your luggage near lounge A and you can leave your bags there before heading to town.
  • There is no direct connection to the metro station from terminal 2 but the nearest station (Pantilan) is 700metres away and you easily walk there to take Line 5 to town.

From terminal 1

  • For all other international carriers, you'll arrive at terminal 1.
  • The left luggage point is on the ground floor near the exit.
  • The metro station at terminal 1 is within the terminal.
  • Metro rides from the airport to downtown only cost 5 pesos (around 0.30USD).
  • Passengers with disability and the elderly can take the metro for free.
