ASUR: Airline failures have taken 20 million seats out of Mexican market

Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste (ASUR) estimated Mexican airline traffic would need until the end of 2012 to recover from the failure of local carriers, including Avolar, ALMA de Mexico and Mexicana de Aviacion (informador.com.mx, 24-Jun-2011). The airport operator estimated that airline failures have cut traffic in Mexico by almost 10 million passengers and cut more than 100 aircraft out of service and as many as 20 million seats. Aeromexico, Interjet, Volaris and other carriers have increased capacity to compensate, but have been unable to make up the majority of the difference.
