Albany -- United Parcel Service is expanding cargo services at the airport in Albany, and that could mean more jobs.

U.P.S. will build a new cargo building on the north side of the airfield, becoming the first tenant of the airport's eight acre cargo apron.

"They have already been boarding over 18 percent of the freight over last year," said Airport Director Yvette Aehle. "Air freight has become such a huge business because of the Internet. Internet retailing."

U.P.S. hasn't announced when it will happen. Three U.P.S. 757's fly into Albany every night. If the company opts to fly in larger aircraft, Albany would have to extend onto the 6,600 foot runway.
