Mexico’s GAP emerging from swine flu crisis better than ASUR and OMA
Mexico’s Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico (GAP) is faring better than rivals Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste (ASUR) and Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte (OMA) in the early stages of recovery from the swine flu shock, particularly in the key international market.
GAP reports total passenger numbers in Jun-2009 were down 20.1% to 1.5 million, including a 17.5% reduction in domestic traffic to 1.0 million and a 25.4% fall in international traffic to 449,800.
