GUADALAJARA, Mexico, Aug. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico, S.A.B. de C.V., (NYSE: PAC; BMV: GAP) (“the Company” or “GAP”) announces preliminary terminal passenger traffic figures for the month of July 2021, which includes comparisons with the 2019 and 2020 figures to facilitate the reading and understanding of the passenger traffic trend.

For July 2021, the total number of terminal passengers at GAP’s 12 Mexican airports decreased by 1.6%, compared to the same period of 2019. Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos and Tijuana presented an increase in passenger traffic of 14.4%, 11.1% and 10.7%, respectively, while the Guanajuato, Guadalajara and Hermosillo airports presented a decrease of only 13.3%, 14.4% and 14.8%, respectively, which demonstrates a positive trend in our Mexican airports.

In relation to international travel restrictions, the United States requests that travelers must present a negative COVID-19 test for entry into that country; while Canada announced that with a tentative date of September 7, international flights will be reopened for people who are fully vaccinated and who meet certain conditions stated by the Government of that Country.
