Mexico City, Mexico — President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that in the coming weeks, DHL will be the first to move its cargo flights to the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA).
“They (DHL) decided that they are going to start bringing their shipments, their cargo and the planes to the Felipe Ángeles Airport,” he said.
In a morning press conference, the president announced that the first DHL cargo landing could take place sometime in February or March, to which he confirmed his attendance.
He recognized the company’s initiative in moving its operations to the air terminal located in the State of Mexico.
“This company responded well since I raised it with them a long time ago. I had promised to be there,” he said regarding the company’s first cargo landing.
The company made the announcement in a letter by DHL’s legal and government relations director, Manuel Montes Bertín, who said they will begin using the Felipe Ángeles International Airport.
DHL is part of a move López Obrador is making to reduce cargo saturation at the Mexico City International Airport.
