Spanish term or phrase: mezzanine apto
This appears in a chart detailing where one can find lounges in the airport. It simply says:

Mezzanine apto

Is this an abbreviation for something? 'Appropriate or suitable mezzanine' just doesn't seem to make sense to me.
Laura
Mezzanine
Explanation:
If the material you are translating is anything like the "Frecuenta" page on the Mexicana web site, then you may want to look at the Spanish-language page:

http://www.mexicana.com.mx/mx2/spanish/Frecuenta/ClienteDist...

and the English-language page:

http://www.mexicana.com.mx/mx2/english/frecuenta/clientedist...

The expression "mezzanine apto" is translated as "Mezzanine airport." Perhaps they meant "airport mezzanine." In any case, it seems to me that "mezzanine" alone is quite sufficient, since the reader already knows that they are talking about an airport, not an opera house. But I leave it to your discretion.

I knew it was an abbreviation for something, I just don't know why it didn't occur to me to be aeropuerto. Thanks for the enlightenment!

Explanation:
'Mezzanine': 'Entrepiso'.
It seems to refers to mid-heigth lounges, for customers, as bars, etc.
Could be: 'Apartado de entrepiso'.
Luck!
