Santa Lucía Air Force Base (IATA: NLU, ICAO: MMSM) is a military airport in Santa Lucía, Zumpango, in the State of Mexico, Mexico.

In October 2019, it was proposed for the military airport to become a civilian airport.

Two runways and a new terminal are planned during the first phase, due to open by March 21, 2022 as ordered by president Andrés Manuel López Obrador. The airport will be operated by the Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA) which will also receive all of the airport's earnings.[3][4][5]

The new airport will be renamed General Felipe Ángeles International Airport.
