Albany -- A new cargo facility at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport could eventually bring more business and more jobs to Albany.

Today, city leaders celebrated the opening of a new facility to house United Parcel Service's Albany-based sorting operation.

Since the eighties, UPS worked out of an older building near the airport.

The 1.7-million dollar building was paid for with sales tax money and government grants.   A new cargo facility at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport could eventually bring more business and more jobs to Albany.
