Asur commercial revenue leaps by +10.7%

By Kevin Rozario |

Commercial division revenue in 2013 at Mexican airports operator Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste (Asur) soared by +10.7%, with individual components of the division all showing good gains.


Retail operations rose by +10.1%; duty free stores by +10.3%; food and beverage by +12.0%; and advertising by +13.4%.  Other activities in the division include car rentals, banking and currency exchange services, advertising, teleservices, non-permanent ground transportation, and parking lot fees. Total commercial revenue reached MXN 1,567m ($118.6m) in 2013 (see table below).



Asur – which runs Cancún Airport, plus eight others in south-east Mexico and is also a 50% joint venture partner in Aerostar Airport Holdings, the operator of the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico – saw traffic rise by +9.5% last year to 21.1m passengers. Cancún made up almost 16m of those passengers.


In terms of international passengers Asur is even more reliant on Cancún: the airport processed 10.9m of Asur’s 11.7m international travellers.


As a result of the good commercial growth versus traffic, total commercial revenue per passenger rose slightly to MXN73.73 ($5.55), a +1.35% increase.
