Mexico's transport and communications ministry (SCT) invested 77mn pesos (US$6.24mn) in repair and modernization works at 18 airport terminals run by federal airport operator ASA during 2010.
The majority of the funds, some 50mn pesos, went to repairs on the runway at Ciudad del Carmen airport, the ministry said in a release.
Another 16mn pesos were used for replacing signal lights and other works at airports Campeche, Chetumal, Loreto and Nuevo Laredo, while just over 11mn pesos went toward projects at aerodromes in Poza Rica, Guaymas and Matamoros.
Works on the second stage of Puebla state airport operator OEA's Hermanos Serdan airport, of which ASA controls 25%, were also completed at a cost of 13.5mn pesos.
Finally, SCT allocated an additional 216mn pesos for ASA environmental certification initiatives and fuel supply during the year.
