GUADALAJARA, Mexico--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE: PAC; BMV: GAP) (“the Company” or “GAP”) announced today preliminary terminal passenger traffic figures for the month of April 2011 compared to traffic figures for April 2010.

It is important to mention that during 2010, the Holy Week vacation period took place in March, while during 2011, it took place in April. As a result, year-over-year growth figures are not perfectly comparable. This distortion is particularly noticeable at the airports that have higher tourist traffic.

During April 2011, total terminal passengers increased 1.1% compared to the previous year; domestic passenger traffic decreased 0.4%, while international passenger traffic increased 3.7% compared to April 2010.

Material Events for the Month

During April, it is important to note that several airlines initiated routes covering the market previously operated by Grupo Mexicana de Aviación and serving the demand resulting from this carrier’s exit, such as: Volaris and Aeromexico with the Guadalajara – Fresno route and VivaAerobus with the San José del Cabo – Mexico City route. In addition, new routes by Aeromexico are worth highlighting, such as: Guadalajara – Hermosillo, Mexicali – Hermosillo, Mexicali – Monterrey and Mexicali – Mexico City.
