Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste (ASUR) has reported HY1 retail revenues up 11.79% at its nine Mexican airports and international traffic +8.18% to 6.9m.


Total commercial revenues for the period rose 10.29% compared with the same period last year thanks to the following contributions: +11.79% in retail operations; +2.26% at duty-free stores; +13.61% F&B; +17.12% car rentals; +22.99% other income; +4.45% advertising; +14.46% parking fees; and +19.27% banking and currency exchange services.


Airports covered include Cancún (World Duty Free Group pictured above), Cozumel, Huatulco, Mérida, Minatitián, Oaxaca, Tapachula, Veracruz and Villahermosa. As usual, in the first half Cancún Airport accounted for the lion’s share of international traffic handling 6.4m (+8%), followed by Cozumel 266,000 (+16.6%). All other airports made modest international traffic contributions.



The privatised airports company – which is also a 50% joint venture partner in Aerostar Airport Holdings which operates Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico –  saw total international and domestic traffic rise by 6.8% over the six-month period.


However, the second quarter saw the total retail operational growth rate fall slightly to +9.31% and duty free revenues fall by -1.24% for the three-month period.
