Passenger numbers down in Mexico according to airport operator OMA

Mexican airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, S.A.B. de C.V., known as OMA , reports that terminal passenger traffic at its 13 airports decreased 32.6% in March 2020, as compared to March 2019. Domestic traffic decreased 31.3%, and international traffic decreased 40.4%. Of total passenger traffic, 99.0% was commercial, and 1.0% was general aviation.

The decrease in total number of passengers occurred mainly because of health emergency measures implemented in Mexico caused by Covid-19 during the second half of March, as well as the resulting significant reduction in seats offered by the airlines that operate in our airports.

As of today, no flight restrictions have been issued by Mexican authorities. If new measures that restrict air operations were enacted, or if the current health emergency measures that have already been implemented in the country, which have restricted economic activity, are extended, there could be a significant additional reduction in passengers at our airports.
