Owned and operated by Doña Ana County, the Jetport runway was recently strengthened and resurfaced. Its lighting system was upgraded to a pilot-controlled LED system. 

Plans include utilizing funds allocated by the U.S. Congress through the Federal Aviation Administration and New Mexico State Legislature to significantly expand the airport's capabilities by adding a second runway capable of handling heavy cargo aircraft, more space for T-hangars, corporate hangars and a separate aircraft maintenance area. 

The airport is key to the County's economic growth with its proximity to the growing Bi-National Industrial Park, a hub for manufacturing goods for interstate and international trade along the U.S.-Mexico border. It is the third spoke of a rail, highway and air transportation system in development to foster trade.
