Mexico will trust its Navy to solve corruption, smuggling, and mismanagement practices at several airports.

In Mexico, for instance, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has officially handed over control of Mexico City Benito Juarez International Airport (MEX) to the country's military to fight corruption and mismanagement practices that have been going on for long.

Besides Benito Juarez International, the Mexican government is also planning to cede to the military control of about a dozen airports in the country, including Matamoros (MAM), across the borders with Texas, and Playa del Carmen (PCM) on the Gulf of Mexico.

The handover process started approximately a year ago when the Mexican navy took control of Mexico City airport's security. Now, the military will progressively take charge of all other departments, from customs and immigration to baggage handling and cleaning.
