    Update on Cargo Operations at Mexico City's International Airport (MEX) and New Airport Felipe Angeles (NLU)

    Update on Cargo Operations at Mexico City's International Airport (MEX) and New Airport Felipe Angeles (NLU)

    I would like to provide you with an update regarding recent developments concerning cargo op-erations at Mexico City's International Airport (MEX) and the new Airport Felipe Angeles (NLU). Please take note of the following information:

    Extension of Deadline:

    Following the Mexican government's announcement, there has been a 60-day extension to the original deadline for cargo operations at MEX. This extension allows cargo dedicated carriers to continue flying from MEX until the beginning of September.

    Actions Taken by Carriers:

    While some carriers are taking advantage of the extended deadline at MEX, several international carriers have officially announced the commencement of operations at the new Airport Felipe Angeles (NLU) within the first few days of this month. The carriers include Qatar Airlines, Air France Cargo, Ethiopian, MSC AirCargo, Air Canada, China Southern, Lufthansa Cargo, Emir-ates, Turkish, and DHL Aviation.

    Mexican Cargo Dedicated Carriers:

    Mexican cargo dedicated carriers such as Aerounion and MAS have chosen to delay the start of their flights to NLU until September. This decision is based on ongoing technical aeronautical issues that need to be resolved, such as maintenance facilities and associated certifications.

    DB Schenker's Readiness:

    I am pleased to inform you that DB Schenker is fully installed and prepared to serve our custom-ers whose cargo arrives and departs from NLU. Our third-party bonded warehouse is currently 90% ready, with the only pending tasks being the finalization of controlled-temperature facilities and the relevant certifications.
    We remain committed to ensuring uninterrupted service to our customers during this transition period. Our team is readily available to address any questions or concerns that our air freight community may have regarding the regulatory change in Mexico. Please feel free to reach out to us with your inquiries.

    Best regards,
