Share:





Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE:PAC) (BMV:GAP)
("the Company" or "GAP") announced preliminary terminal passenger
traffic figures for the month of February 2017, compared to traffic
figures for February 2016.

During February 2017, total terminal passengers increased 10.9% in the
Company's 13 airports, compared to the same period of the previous year.
Domestic passenger traffic increased by 14.9%, while international
passenger traffic increased by 6.3%. It is important to highlight that
February 2017 figures are not exactly comparable to February 2016
figures, nor are the accumulated traffic figures for 2017 versus 2016
exactly comparable. This is because 2016 was a leap year and therefore
included an extra day of operations.

Events for the Period:

  • Seats and Load Factors: In February 2017, GAP registered an
    11.6% increase in the number of seats available compared to February
    2016. Load factors for the month decreased by 0.5 percentage points,
    from 77.2% in February 2016 to 76.7% in February 2017.
  • New Routes:
    • Guadalajara to Miami: Volaris
    • Puerto Vallarta to Oakland: Southwest
    • Los Cabos to Oakland: Southwest
  • Cross Border Xpress:

    The cross-border bridge
    registered 114,805 users in February 2017, which represented a 24.1%
    market penetration of Tijuana airport's total passengers.
