SAASA acquires air cargo terminal at Benito Juarez
Servicios Aeroportuarios Andino Global S.L. (SAASA) has acquired an air cargo terminal at Benito Juarez International Airport in Mexico City in partnership with Grupo CCO.
The acquired warehouse, which will receive a significant investment to increase its storage capacity, will kick-start other operations in two other Latin American countries later this year.
“This strategic asset, together with the purchase of Globalia Handling de Mexico-now SAASA Mexico, a few months ago, sets us in an excellent position at a very dynamic airport such as Benito Juarez. This airport handles over 50 million passengers and more than 570 thousand tons of air cargo per year. Currently, we are operating in 4 Mexican airports and now we have a cargo terminal that will allow us to service an important and demanding market in the airline industry,” said Enrique Vargas, SAASA’s CEO.
In less than a year, SAASA Mexico has already been able to double its ramp operations at Benito Juarez airport.
In addition to Benito Juarez, SAASA also operates at the Felipe Angeles International Airport in Zumpango de Ocampo, the Adolfo López Mateos International Airport in Toluca and the Manuel Crescencio Rejon International Airport in Merida.
