According to FlightGlobal, a draft document has been leaked, revealing that the Mexican government plans to ban all freighter flights from Mexico City’s Benito Juarez International Airport. It recommends freighter operations transfer to Felipe Angeles International, which opened last March.

“Neither airlines nor the associated cargo supply chain can just pack up and move to an alternative airport.”

Mexico defended its position, but it is likely it’s not the last we’ll hear of this story…
