Advantages and challenges of air transportation

Air cargo transportation is one of the most convenient and effective ways to transport goods regardless of time or distance.

Thanks to airplanes, it is possible to move almost any type of merchandise, providing faster delivery times and strengthening commercial relationships with customers. However, air freight entails a significant investment of money, as it is one of the most expensive modes of transportation and requires more resources to operate.

It is important to mention that air cargo in Mexico experienced solid growth in 2022, as the use of this method increased by 4.8% in the first six months compared to 2021, according to the Federal Civil Aviation Agency.

The airports with the highest air cargo traffic are:

  • Mexico City
  • Guadalajara
  • Puebla
  • Querétaro
  • Monterrey

It is estimated that over the years, the Felipe Angeles International Airport (AIFA) will become the main destination for this mode of air logistics.
