IATA data regarding world air traffic from Jan to April/05 show the following regional growth:

January -April 2005 YTD (year to date)

RPK Growth / ASK Growth / Pax Load Factor %

Africa 11.8 % / 7.5 % / 70.0
Asia/Pacific 8.2 % / 7.4 % / 72.1
Europe 6.0 % / 5.1 % / 73.8
Middle East 13.6 % / 12.2 % / 72.6
North America 11.5 % / 10.0 % / 77.6
Latin America 13.7 % / 13.1 % / 72.7
World 8.7 % / 7.6 % / 73.6

Latin America tops the list, followed by the Middle East, both showing strong air traffic growth. European air traffic shows under-average growth.

Just in Mexico, the Mexican Transportation Bureau shows that passengers transported went up in from 2002 to 2003 ( no 2004 still available) 5.5% acording to the anual growth rate.

Passengers transportated within in the domestic airlines:

2002: 24,051 thousands of passengers
2003: 24,846 thousands of passengers

Passengers transportated by the international airlines:

2002: 13,205 thousands of passengers
2003: 14,430 thousands of passengers

Being the US the primary destination with a major flow of passengers between this two countries ( AA and CO takind the lead).

As the major European carrier being LH, followed by IB, AF, and KL.

Varig :98,000 passengers in 2002, to 113,000 passengers in 2003.

Taca: 45,000 to 50,000 passengers

Copa:110,000 to 140,000 passengers

LAB: 36,000 to 58,000

LAN: 88,000 to 92,000

Cubana: 135,000 to 117,000 ( a decrease in passengers)

Avianca: 45,000 to 49,000

No Aerolíneas Argentinas of course.

Some interesting data here, I was kind of surprised with some of the numbers. Anyway, this is the growth Mexico has been having since 2002. Let's wait and see for the growth in 2004, must have bigger numbers I guess. How about airlines at your countries?

Cheers

Alonso, thanks for the numbers. Impressive to see RG's growth in Mexico! (second only to CM in total pax).

In the whole of Latin America air traffic has been growing fast, and different from predictions, faster than Asia and any other regions. It shows that Latin America is a the main market airlines should invest for future operations. In fact, it is because of the Latin American market, that US carriers have been able to keep some of their operations profitable balancing loss making routes.

Rgs,

Well LB flies to MEX 5X a week while AV do it only 4X. If wrong, please SouthA help me on this one!

They also frequently send B763s while AV more recently, at least, 03/04 has been a B752 operation.

Probably:
MEX, CGH, GRU, BSB, GIG, EZE, SCL, BOG, CCS and LIM.

I only have numbers for Brazilian Airports and MEX. Does anyone has numbers for PTY, EZE, SCL, BOG, CCS, LIM and others ?
There are other busiest mexican airports ?

Yes. LB operates VVI-MEX nonstop on Tuesdays and Saturday on 763.

Correct Ricardo. AV offers 11 weekly flights to MEX, but only 4 of them are operated by the airline itself, the other 7, as you know, are operated by partner company Mexicana.

LB is operating 5 weekly flights to Mexico City, and will continue so at least during the whole summer.

2 of those flights are served nonstop to/from VVI, and the other 3 operate through PTY on 727-200.

Making quick calculations, the seat offer of LB compared to that of AV is very similar [approximately 700 weekly seats each airline]. It would be nice to have further details.

About the LB stuff, those were numbers from 2002 to 2003, things for sure changed for 2004.

Anyone knows the frecuencies of AV of 2002 and 2003?

Because they are very cheap.And They do a lot of charters with tour operators to places like CUN and so.

No surprise there - good to see the region recovering.

For your info, those IATA figures will be made up of figures for South America only - not Central America (it will not include the Mexican carriers' figures), so the term Latin america for the figures is slightly misleading. having said that, the current trend is similar in Central america too.

The carriers included in those figures are LAN, Aerolineas, Varig, LAB and possibly TAM and Avianca - it will be for their international traffic only.

I would say CUN, GDL and MTY, in that order.

CUN receives 10 million passengers a year. GDL and MTY just over 7 million yearly. I got these numbers from a thread on airliners.

According to Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, the operator of almost all airports in Argentina, here are the numbers for 2003 (they still don't show the 2004 numbers on their website):

EZE 4.450.177
AEP 4.161.280

So, EZE is slightly bigger than AEP on pax volume, mainly due to AR flying some domestic routes from EZE for connecting pax. I'd be interesting on seeing the 2004 numbers, as in 2004 there was an important increase on airlines flying to Argentina.

So, finally I found the 2004 numbers for Argentine airports.

AEP 5.245.923
EZE 5.565.656

Total BUE: 10.811.579 pax.

Still, EZE is bigger than AEP pax wise.

26 MEA-707 : Don't take it too hard, lots of respect for the growth and I heared great things about LAN, TAM and many other airlines, but to get things in perspect
27 Hardiwv : MEA: the figure 30 million pax is for BRAZIL alone, and for the months January to April/05 only! Read my post 25 more carefully. Rgs,
28 MEA-707 : OK Hardi, I give in, I must admit I didn't read it carefully, indeed 30 million would have been unbelieveably small if I think and compare the respect
29 LipeGIG : So using 2004 numbers given the top 10 Latin America Airports : 1- MEX, Cidade do Mexico, Mexico >20.0 2- CGH, Sao Paulo, Brazil 13.3 3- GRU, Sao Paul
30 Juventus : Thanx for the info, LipeGIG. Is kind of surprising not to see Santiago on the top 10.
31 Post contains links Hardiwv : Felipe, what is the source of your data? Here is another list based on 2002 official traffic: 1. MEX 2. GRU 3. CGH 4. CUN 5. BSB 6. CCS 7. GDL 8. SCL
32 Glareskin : No Rio airports Hardiwv? I would have expected both GIG and SDU to be in the top 15.....
33 Hardiwv : Glareskin: Tks for the remark! Here is the new revised list: 1. MEX 2. GRU 3. CGH 4. CUN 5. BSB 6. GIG 7. CCS 8. SDU 9. GDL 10. SCL 11. AEP 12. SSA 13
34 Bogota : Like usual BOG left out. Pax figures for BOG in 2004 stand at around 8.0 millione pax. 5.5 million for domestic movements and 2.5 million for internat
35 Hardiwv : Tks. This would make BOG rank about 7th in Latin America, just before CCS. Rgs,
36 LipeGIG : Juventus, i'm sorry. As Hardi and Bogota informed, are missing: Bogota, Caracas, San Juan and Santiago. Hardi source was Infraero and for the others,
37 Hardiwv : All in all, of the top airports in Latin American, you could group them in two: 1. More than 10mil pax/year MEX, GRU, CGH, CUN and BSB 2. From 5 to 1
38 Pzurita1 : In order to establish the correct ranking we should use data available to all airports. Saddly, there is not info ready for 2004, so we have to use da
39 LIPEGIG : Nice work! Thanks for your update. You're right. 2004 numbers will improve BSB probably to be ranked as a top 5 airport in Latin America. Does anyone
40 Pzurita1 : LipeGIG, I am updating all numbers for all Latin American airports for 2004. I am only missing LIM and SJU. For now I can tell you that there are some
41 LipeGIG : I will wait your list ! Only a little note, GIG was not so strong on 2004 but seems that this year it become much more larger due to flight realocati
