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?

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.

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.
Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work
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):
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.
