Roundup: Airport traffic beginning to lag in November (Mexico)
Mexican private airport operator Asur (NYSE: ASR, BMV: ASUR) reported passenger traffic for November was up slightly by 1% compared with the year-ago period.


Domestic traffic was down 1.8% year-on-year with the operator handling fewer passengers at seven of its nine airports, Asur said in a release. Only Cancun and Villahermosa reported more passengers, up 9% and 1.4% respectively.


Asur handled 680,211 international passengers in the month, up 3.4% over the 657,812 in the previous year. The jump was thanks to the firm's largest airport Cancun, which handled 20,443 more passengers this November than in 2009.




Compatriot airport operator OMA (Nasdaq: OMAB, BMV: OMA) reported a 0.9% drop in November traffic, handling 915,315 passengers compared with 923,834 in the same month in 2009.


Domestic traffic was down 2.1% for the month, with six of the firm's 13 airports reporting fewer passengers. Acapulco, Culiacan, Torreon and Reynosa airports were the heaviest hit by troubled airline Mexicana, which suspended operations August 28, OMA said in a release.


International passengers grew at six airports, rising 5.3% compared with the prior-year period. The biggest gains were at San Luis Potosi and Monterrey airports, which saw traffic increase by 38.0% and 16.5% respectively.




Finally, Mexican airport operator GAP (NYSE: PAC, BMV: GAP) reported a 1.3% decrease in passenger traffic in November compared with the same month last year.


International traffic was down 2.1% year-on-year, GAP said in a press release. The firm's 12 airports split evenly on losses and gains in the month.


Domestic traffic was also down, though less so with airports handling 0.9% fewer passengers compared with November 2009. Guanajuato reported the biggest drop of 18.8%, while Morelia airport saw the largest gain of 11.9% in the month.
