General Mariano Escobedo International Airport (IATA: MTY, ICAO: MMMY) is an international airport located in Apodaca, Nuevo León, Mexico. Together with Del Norte International Airport, General Mariano Escobedo International Airport handles domestic and international operations for the city of Monterrey and its metropolitan area.
The airport is considered one of the most modern airports in North America serving up to 5 million passengers per year. Eighty seven percent of passenger traffic is domestic, primarily from the cities of Mexico City, Guadalajara, Chihuahua, and Tijuana, and thirteen percent of passenger traffic is international, primarily from the American cities of Dallas and Houston. There are almost 300 daily flights to more than 35 destinations in Mexico and the United States. It is considered as the country's fourth most important airport in terms of passengers handled and operations per year, after Mexico City International Airport, Cancún International Airport, and Guadalajara International Airport.
The airport serves as a hub for Aeroméxico Connect, Magnicharters, VivaAerobus with a secondary hub for Aeroméxico. Airport terminals were renovated and expanded in 2003 and again in 2007. In 2010, the airport handled 5,380,412 passengers. 
- Terminal A, consists of a building comprising check-in facilities, baggage claiming, shopping areas, restaurants, customs, airport and airline offices, as many other services, while the satellite building connected via underground tunnels comprises all the VIP and waiting lounges, migration among other services as well as obviously the boarding gates. The Satellite building, is divided into two concourses, North Concourse for domestic flights (Gates A1-A15), while South Concourse comprises all the international flights that operate into the airport (Gates B3-B8). Several flights are delayed day by day due to the lack of free contact and even remote positions, as the ones capable of handling large aircraft such as the Boeing 767. Nevertheless, Terminal C and Terminal B work as a relief system for this terminal. There are future plans to remodel and expand the Satellite building, adding at least 4 new jetways and 3 remote positions.

The airport terminal is able to handle up to 2 million passengers per year, and allows the airport to free some slots for new airlines to operate into Terminal A.
