Passenger Traffic Nearly 5% Higher at Mexico City Airport in August

Mexico City’s primary airport, Benito Juárez International Airport, released its passenger traffic data for August 2019. The facility served about 4.43 million passengers last month, a 4.9% increase compared to the same month of 2018. While traffic on domestic flights increased 6.3%, international routes only grew 2.5%. The airport’s total movements rose 4.7% to over 40,000.
