This is a loaded question… What is classified as a cargo airport? My home airport has two UPS flights while Memphis is the Fedex Hub and is only two hours from me

Even though I live in Dayton, Ohio, the closest worldport for me is Louisville, KY. It’s almost all cargo jets. (Major UPS Hub)

If it’s classified as a “Worldport”, then it is a “Cargo Airport”.

Interesting. KIAH and KRIC arent "Worldports

Are there mainly cargo aircraft?

KPIT, go figure… 😂

In my opinion, an airport can be considered as a cargo airport if it receives any type of cargo flight. Also remember that many passenger aircraft transport cargo so keep them in mind too.

By the way, my nearest cargo airport is MMMX, with daily arrivals of Qatar Cargo, Emirates Cargo, Ethiopian Cargo, KLM B747 Combi, DHL, Cargolux, Aerounion and LATAM Cargo.

San Jose is considered a General Aviation airport (Although they are trying to get rid of it), a Commercial airport, a Cargo Airport, and [sometimes] a Reliever Airport for traffic from the 2 larger airports in the Bay Area.

So technically, San Jose is my nearest cargo airport, but Oakland and San Francisco handles lots as well

Two flights a day doesn’t make it a cargo airport. Now probably if there was more flights a day then you could make the argument your airport is a cargo airport. Memphis has a ton of cargo flights a day and is a hub for FedEx and is consider a cargo airport.
