Airports

Mexico has a large airport network that is used daily to transport a great volume of people and materials.

It has more than 60 airports located throughout the country, for international travels, domestic and cargo transport. Both the major cities of the country and the most popular tourist destinations are covered by the Mexican airport network.

In 1988 the federal government decided to open the airport system to private investment, that’s why groups like Pacific Airport Group, Central North Airport Group and Southeast Airport Group took possession of the country's airports.

Southeast Airport Group was the first group with participation of private capital in Mexico, and also the first group in quoting simultaneously on the NYSE and the BMV. This group is in charge of the Cancun, Cozumel, Huatulco, Merida, Minatitlan, Oaxaca, Tapachula, Veracruz and Villahermosa airports.

Pacific Airport Group is in charge of the Guadalajara, Tijuana, Mexicali, Hermosillo, Los Mochis, Aguascalientes, Guanajuato, Morelia, La Paz, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo airports.

Central North Airport Group is in charge of the Acapulco, Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Culiacan, Durango, Mazatlan, Monterrey, Reynosa, San Luis Potosi, Tampico, Torreon, Zacatecas and Zihuatanejo airports.

In 2011, the International Airport of Mexico City along with airports that integrate the Southeast Airport Group, the Pacific Airport Group and the Central North Airport Group, transported 56,171,491 passengers and moved 553,447 tons of cargo, showing the size of the Mexican Airport Network.
