GUADALAJARA, Mexico--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE:PAC) (BMV:GAP) (“the Company” or “GAP”) announced preliminary terminal passenger traffic figures for the month of February 2017, compared to traffic figures for February 2016.
During February 2017, total terminal passengers increased 10.9% in the Company’s 13 airports, compared to the same period of the previous year. Domestic passenger traffic increased by 14.9%, while international passenger traffic increased by 6.3%. It is important to highlight that February 2017 figures are not exactly comparable to February 2016 figures, nor are the accumulated traffic figures for 2017 versus 2016 exactly comparable. This is because 2016 was a leap year and therefore included an extra day of operations.

- Seats and Load Factors: In February 2017, GAP registered an 11.6% increase in the number of seats available compared to February 2016. Load factors for the month decreased by 0.5 percentage points, from 77.2% in February 2016 to 76.7% in February 2017.
