Can new airport buildings and terminal areas be designed for equally effective handling of passengers and freight? This is a valid question at the present time, now that the wide-body jet age is with us. Not only does the wide-body jet offer more in the way of comfort and appeal to the passenger, it also offers a decided improvement in "cargo appeal" as well. This article reviews the impact of the wide-body types on the requirements for airport cargo facilities. In addition, it presents some relevant features of a new airport concept tailored to meet wide-body aircraft needs that could be applied at the new airport envisaged for Mexico City.
