The secretary of Sustainable Development (Sedesu) -dependence that coordinates the operation of the AIQ- Marco Antonio Del Prete Tercero, stressed that with these works the operational infrastructure is strengthened, because having six positions is a greater parameter than the one they can have. other airports.

During the first four months of the year, the AIQ has moved an average of 6,000 tons of cargo per month, and if this rate is maintained, it is expected that by the end of the year it will exceed the 64,000 tons moved in 2021 by 10%.

Merchandise shipping companies such as FedEx, UPS, DHL operate from the AIQ; In addition, the Mercado Libre distribution center for the Bajío is located in the state.

Faced with the country’s airport reengineering, the Mexican Air Space Navigation Services, of the federal government, plan to install a new radar in the AIQ.

The incorporation of this addition will imply that various works are carried out at the airport to provide support, the state secretary advanced.

Although the investment that this project will require is unknown, it is estimated that a radar of this type will cost almost 80 million pesos.

We will do some works to place the radar, which represents a building and other support works for the radar; It comes to complement all this reorganization of the Mexican airport system”, emphasized Del Prete Tercero.

Given the airport adjustments, the proximity of the AIQ to the Mexico International Airport (AICM) and the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA) do not interfere with the operation of the local airport.
