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.
