High investor demand to fund a planned US$13 billion airport for Mexico's capital means the private sector could finance up to 70 percent of the project, versus an initial 42 percent, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters on Wednesday.

A hike in market participation could mean raising bond issuance for the project to around US$9 billion from an originally forecast of US$6 billion, with maturities of 10, 20 and 30 years, said the source
