Monterrey takes off.

Grupo Aeroportuario Centro Norte opened a new air-cargo terminal at the Monterrey, Mexico airport. In order to encourage air cargo shipping in Monterrey, the airport authority now has available 60,000 square meters of cargo operations space, the largest in the country. The airport authority's goal is to attract new airlines and develop niche markets. The first stage included a US$5 million investment to build a customs center and to increase parking, in accordance with International Air Transport Association standards. The fully equipped cargo area, built to environmental standards, will increase in size in the future. U.S. package shipper Federal Express and the airport group recently signed a contract to operate a 4,000 square meter space. The airport also expects to sign with global shippers DHL, UPS and Mexico's Estafeta.
