Corporación América Airports reports 907.0% increase in passenger traffic in June 2021

Corporación América Airports, the largest private-sector airport operator in the world by the number of airports, reported a massive 907.0% increase in passenger traffic in June 2021 compared to last year, but a 68.7% decline when compared to the same period of 2019.

Total passenger traffic in June 2021 grew  907.0% compared to the same period of last year, reflecting easier comparisons as June 2020 was highly impacted by the restrictions and travel bans to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. When compared to 2019, overall passenger traffic declined 68.7%, impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic across all countries of operations. However, this was a sequential improvement from the 73.6% decline reported in May 2021 vs 2019. International and domestic passenger traffic dropped 76.0% and 68.6%, respectively, from pre-pandemic levels of June 2019.

In Argentina, total passenger traffic increased 17.7x YoY. Against June 2019, overall passenger traffic declined 85.7%, with international passenger traffic declining 89.5%, impacted by tightened government restrictions to international flights, including a limit of 600 arriving international passengers per day starting the last week of June, while borders remain closed to non-resident foreigners, with limited exceptions. Domestic passenger traffic declined 84.3% compared to 2019, due to low passenger demand.
