The city of Albuquerque has opened a new airport to accommodate a new international airline, which will operate flights from New York to New Delhi.
The airline, Air New Zealand, announced it will operate one of the country’s busiest airports from October 1 to 20, bringing the total number of international flights that can be flown at the new airport from over 1,000 to more than 1,600.
The airport, called Albuquerque International Airport, opened for business Wednesday and will allow about 100 flights a day to be flown from New Delhi to Albuquerque, with additional service from other cities in the US.
Albuquerque International Airport is one of two new international airports the city has opened in recent years.
The other is the nearby Airport of the Americas in New York City.
The new airport will serve the city of about 3.5 million people and will be part of the city-owned airport.
The Albuquerque airport, named for the city, opened in 2006.
It was originally built in the 1930s and was built in a hangar that was built to accommodate aircraft in the era of World War II.
The hangar, however, was destroyed in the bombing of the World Trade Center.
The new airport is slated to be the second busiest airport in the United States, after Dulles International Airport in Virginia.
The Dulles airport opened in 1980.
