Ethiopian Airlines is moving to Mexico City's new airport

On September 2, 2023, Ethiopian Cargo repositioned its operations from Mexico City International Airport (MEX) to the new Felipe Ángeles International Airport (NLU). This move was prompted by a Mexican government mandate requiring freighter operators to relocate to the new airport to alleviate congestion at MEX.


Ethiopian Airlines has been operating to Mexico City twice a week for over the past six years, using its Boeing 777F fleet, which has the capacity to handle 100 tons per flight. With the relocation to NLU, Ethiopian will continue serving this route twice weekly.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ethiopian Airlines Group, Mesfin Tasew, said in a statement that Ethiopian has been proudly serving the Mexican market. He added, “Our services from MEX have been defined by building strong relationships, delivering impeccable services, and contributing to the region's growth of trade and commerce. Our relocation to the Felipe Ángeles International Airport brings with it a new chapter of possibilities”.

Despite the obligatory relocation, Ethiopian Cargo believes the state-of-the-art cargo terminal, boasting cutting-edge technology and modern facilities, is an upgrade that will improve its efficiency and excellence, “enabling us to provide an elevated level of service to our valued customers”.

Looking at the cargo fleet, Ethiopian has one Boeing 737-800BCF, two 737-800 (SF)s, two 767-300ER (BDSF)s, and nine 777-200Fs ³. Beyond cargo carriers, the Felipe Ángeles International Airport currently has scheduled passenger operations from six airlines. These are Aeromexico, Arajet, Conviasa, Copa Airlines, Viva Aerobus, and Volaris.
