By adding efforts and will, the objective of harmoniously migrating 360,000 tons of cargo from the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) will be achieved, with benefits in the medium and long term for the country's air cargo sector, said the secretary. of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation (SICT), Jorge Nuño Lara.

The head of the SICT led a meeting with national and foreign representatives of the aviation sector to learn about the facilities of the cargo area of ​​the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA), where he thanked the openness to dialogue and called for teamwork to draw up a plan, in order to see how it is possible to meet the goal of relocating cargo operations.

He explained that, although the government proposal is for a period of 108 business days to move the 360,000 tons of merchandise, if the calendar days are taken they increase to 156, which include 22 Saturdays and 22 Sundays that both the Secretariat of Infrastructure , the Federal Civil Aviation Agency, customs, the airport and each of the agents that have some authorization issue, we will be 24 hours to achieve this challenge.

In the meeting also led by the directors of the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA), General Isidoro Pastor Román; from the National Customs Agency of Mexico (ANAM), Rafael Marín Mollinedo; from the Federal Civil Aviation Agency (AFAC), General Miguel Enrique VallIn Osuna; and from Grupo Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de México (GACM), Javier Villazón, pointed out that the benefits of moving will undoubtedly be greater than the costs of staying at the AICM.

For this, the decision has been made to structure a multi-airport system, given the progressive limitation that the AICM had to meet the growing demand for passengers and cargo, he stressed.

Nuño Lara commented that it is convenient to focus on taking advantage of the time and the advantages that AIFA has, because this allows us to have a new beginning. "This is going to be under our control and we will be able to do it, without a doubt, in the 156 calendar days we have," he emphasized.

The Felipe Ángeles International Airport is an infrastructure with more direct access to the fiscal precincts, some of them with double access, with a greater capacity in the fiscal route that facilitates more expeditious reviews due to the electronic transfer of the petitions.

It has the capacity to expand in the future in an orderly manner, something that the AICM did not have, which is saturated and in such a congested area, he added.

This airport has areas available for logistics development within the polygon, airside operation efficiency, shorter runway and taxiway operating time, as well as complementary support areas for cargo vehicles that other airports do not have; In general, all this represents important advantages in time and operating costs, he explained.

He indicated that in terms of AIFA airport rates, it is important to mention that they are among the lowest in the country, between 41 and 52% less than the average of other airports, as well as availability of schedules to accommodate dedicated cargo operations all day.

The head of the SICT emphasized that, together with the Undersecretariat of Transportation, under the responsibility of Rogelio Jiménez Pons, they will follow up on this moving process and work tables will be held with the directors of AIFA, GACM and ANAM, that is, all the federal government will be together with you (the air cargo sector) to achieve this objective, he pointed out.
