ASUR Performance

ASUR Announces Total Passenger Traffic for October 2017

Passenger traffic increased 5.2% YoY in Mexico, and decreased 25.4% in Puerto Rico and 13.0% in Colombia

ASUR

Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste, S.A.B. de C.V.  (NYSE:  ASR; BMV: ASUR)(ASUR), a international airport group with operations in Mexico, the U.S. and Colombia, today announced that total passenger traffic for October 2017 declined 4.2% when compared to October 2016. Passenger traffic rose 5.2% in Mexico, and declined 24.5% in San Juan and 13.0% in Colombia.

This announcement reflects comparisons between October 1 through October 31, 2017 and 2016. Accumulated figures reflect comparisons between January 1 and October 31, 2017 and 2016. Transit and general aviation passengers are excluded for Mexico and Colombia. 

On October 19, 2017 ASUR closed the acquisition of a controlling stake of approximately 92.42% in Sociedad Operadora de Aeropuertos de Centro Norte, S.A. ("Airplan"), the second-largest airport concession holder in Colombia. Therefore, starting October 2017, ASUR is starting to report monthly passenger traffic figures for Airplan.

Note that the decline in passenger traffic at San Juan Airport reflects the impact of Hurricane Maria, which hit the island on September 21, 2017. Operations at this airport were still operating on a limited basis during October 2017. While the number of flights in October 2017 returned to the 70 average daily flights reported in 2016, they still register a lower load factor in arrivals. In Colombia, passenger traffic was impacted by a strike of local pilots at a major international carrier.
