Manchester-Boston Regional Airport has reached a deal with a developer to build a new multi-tenant cargo building just off the primary runway that could double the airport’s cargo facility space.

The airport saw back-to-back record years in cargo tonnage despite declining passenger counts because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The increase in cargo helps lower landing fees and overall operating costs, which could attract more passenger carriers in the future, according to Airport Director Ted Kitchens.
