Events for the Period:

  • Seats and Load Factor: In July 2016, GAP registered a 10.9%
    increase in the number of seats available compared to July 2015. Load
    factor for the month rose by 3.9 percentage points, from 83.6% in July
    2015 to 87.5% in July 2016.
  • New Routes: Guanajuato to Torreon, Guanajuato to Manzanillo,
    Hermosillo to Chihuahua, Hermosillo to Puerto Peñasco and Tijuana to
    Puerto Peñasco by TAR; Guadalajara to Merida by Aeromexico;
    Guadalajara to Culiacan and Guadalajara to Puerto Vallarta by
    VivaAerobus; Guadalajara to Seattle and Guadalajara to San Francisco
    by Volaris.
  • Guadalajara: In July, total traffic benefited as a result of
    the opening of 5 new routes; specifically a new Seattle route, for
    which there was previously no direct flight. On a percentage basis,
    VivaAerobus and Aeromexico contributed the highest level to passenger
    volume growth, with an increase in available seats of 53% and 22%,
    respectively.
  • Puerto Vallarta: This airport reached its 38th month
    of continuous growth. Domestic traffic grew 21.8% as a result of 14
    thousand additional new seats by VivaAerobus. On the other hand, the
    international market benefited from over 9 thousand additional
    available seats from Alaska Airlines, a 30% increase compared to July
    2015.
  • Los Cabos: The opening of the summer vacation season
    contributed to a 24.4% growth in domestic passenger traffic. All
    domestic airlines increased traffic compared to July 2015,
    particularly Aeromexico and VivaAerobus, which reported increases of
    40% and 35% in available seats, respectively.
  • Tijuana: Despite the 13.1% increase in available seats during
    July, passenger traffic rose 23.2%. This was a result of the load
    factor’s favorable performance, which increased 6.8 percentage points
    from 82.6% in July 2015 to 89.4% in July 2016. The opening of the Cross
    Border-Xpress
    , in addition to the passengers traveling to south
    California and Tijuana, and a more attractive exchange rate, were the
    factors that mainly contributed to the increased traffic.
