Arizona airport to house Mexican and US customs
Arizona will be home to "Sky Bridge Arizona", the nation’s first international air cargo hub to house both Mexican and US customs.
The US state's governor, Doug Ducey, announced that the first-of-its-kind service, which will be operated out of Phoenix-Mesa gateway airport (AZA), will enable e-commerce companies, manufacturers and other commercial interests conducting business in Mexico and throughout Latin America to more efficiently and cost-effectively transport goods between countries, while ensuring proper inspections and safety controls.
At full build-out, the park could encompass between 325,000 - 465,000 sqm of office, warehouse, logistics/cargo, hospitality, and retail space. The project is expected to increase cargo flights out of AZA by 2,000 a year, eventually reaching 10,000 by 2036. (ah)
