Burrell Aviation Plans Santa Teresa, New Mexico, Cargo Aviation Complex

Burrell Aviation will establish a facility at Doña Ana County International Jetport in Santa Teresa, New Mexico. The $72 million project is expected to create 1,300 jobs.

The company will construct multiple new structures designed to expand cargo and distribution services, including facilities dedicated to air cargo handling, cold storage, distribution, and aircraft maintenance.

“We greatly appreciate the Governor’s commitment to this important initiative, as well as the support we have received from local and community partners. This has been a collaborative effort, with a focus on creating and developing a strong public-partnership with the Doña Ana County Jetport,” said Daniel Burrell, founder and executive chairman of The Burrell Group.

The facility will utilize planned improvements to Doña Ana County Jetport infrastructure funded by millions of dollars of investments at the state, local, and federal levels. In addition the expansion project will see a $40 million investment in the Border Highway Connector, a new roadway connecting the Santa Teresa Port of Entry and the Santa Teresa Industrial Park directly into the City of Sunland Park that will streamline cross border traffic flow, including for goods and cargo.

“Expanding global trade is key to diversifying New Mexico’s economy, which is why I’ve prioritized investments in infrastructure improvement and economic growth in the Borderplex,” noted Governor Lujan Grisham. “I’m excited to welcome Burrell Aviation to New Mexico, building on public and private growth in the border region and using our strategic investments in infrastructure to create jobs and generate new revenue.”

Burrell Aviation’s solution requires the development of significant new infrastructure at nearby regional airports that would necessitate a cargo aircraft to divert only a few minutes away from the significant hub destination it traditionally relied upon. The company’s product offers an accessible, open runway with logistical infrastructure and equipment ready to immediately off-load cargo within minutes.
