Licenciado Adolfo López Mateos International Airport is an international airport located at Toluca, State of Mexico, Mexico. It is part of the Mexico City Metropolitan Airport Group, and it's being improved and promoted to handle some traffic for the city of Toluca, but it mainly serves as a low-cost carrier airport for Mexico City such as Interjet and Volaris and most recently Aeromexico Connect. The airport is named after President Adolfo López Mateos. It is considered as the main alternate airport for Mexico City International Airport since it is only 30 minutes or 40 km away from the Santa Fe financial district and has the longest runway of any airport in Mexico. Air Madrid formerly flew a Toluca-Madrid route, but ended flights because the Spanish government didn't approve the safety standards of the airline, and Air Madrid decided to cut its flights to Toluca, and Milan Malpensa to save its license.

The airport went from serving 145,000 passengers in 2002, to 3,200,000 in 2007 and 4,300,000 in 2008. It became a focus city or a secondary hub for Volaris.On March 8, 2011, Volaris announced that its hub in Toluca will switch to Guadalajara.The airport went from having four terminals to only two since all domestic operations are now handled at the Domestic Terminal. Before 2007, Interjet and Volaris had each one independent terminals, plus Terminal 1 (now Domestic Terminal) and the International Terminal. Airlines operate as follow:
