ASUR announces total passenger traffic for February 2022

Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste, S.A.B. de C.V. ASUR, a leading international airport group with operations in Mexico, the U.S. and Colombia, today announced that passenger traffic for February 2022 reached a total of 4.5 million passengers, 7.0% above the levels reported in February 2019, reflecting a continued overall recovery in travel demand and the rollout of vaccination campaigns in the US and gradual advances in Mexico, despite restrictions and requirements in certain countries of the world to contain the spread of the effects of the new Omicron variant, which mainly impacted Mexico and Puerto Rico.

Compared to February 2019, passenger traffic increased by 23.3% in Colombia, 2.2% in Mexico and 6.3% in Puerto Rico. Passenger traffic growth in all three regions was driven by domestic and international traffic.

This announcement reflects comparisons between February 1 through February 28, 2022, from February 1 through February 28, 2021, and February 1 through February 28, 2019, and 2020.

Note that in 2020 the month of February had 29 days, compared with 28 days in 2019 and 2022. Transit and general aviation passengers are excluded for Mexico and Colombia.
