The Airport and Auxiliary Services (ASA) Network reported an increase in passenger traffic during the first months of 2023. Other airport groups also reported growth in comparison to their 2022 numbers. 

ASA’s passenger traffic grew by 9.2% during the first four months of 2023, in comparison to the same period in 2022. The network transported 1.3 million passengers during the period, in comparison to the 1.2 million from 2022, according to a press release. 

In January-April 2023 the air terminals with the highest increases were: Nuevo Laredo, with 189.1%; Matamoros, 33.7%; Loreto, 25.8%; Puebla, 19.9%; Tepic, 18.9%; Colima, 18.6%; Puerto Escondido, 17.7%; Guaymas, 14.1%; Uruapan, 4.5%; and Ciudad Victoria, 4.1%.

Airport operations in the ASA terminals grew 1.2% for a total of 43,671 operations. The seven terminals with the highest increases were: Nuevo Laredo, with 22.5%; Guaymas, 21.5%; Puebla, 18.5%; Tepic, 12.6%; Uruapan, 7.1%; Loreto, 1.8%; and Ciudad del Carmen, 0.4%.

The Matamoros and Ciudad Victoria terminals announced two new air routes to Monterrey, which will be operated by the AERUS airline using a Cessna Gran Caravan EX type aircraft. The aircraft has the capacity to transport nine passengers. 

“For ASA, air connectivity is synonymous with economic, commercial and tourist development, which encourages the creation of new sources of employment, always complying with the highest safety and quality standards. ASA consolidates its service work by increasing national air connectivity to generate new business links and continue offering world-class airport services,” says ASA.
