Passenger traffic estimates are based on the consolidation of the routes developed to date, the increase of occupancy load factors, and airlines’ flight frequencies and seat availability, with the information currently available.
The revenue increase is based on traffic performance, applicable passenger fees, inflation, contract terms, and current commercial agreements, as well as the development of other business lines operated directly by the Company.
The increase in the cost of services reflects operating requirements needed to meet airport service demand, infrastructure expansion and service quality improvements, inflation, increase in minimum wages, and the hiring of additional personnel for the operations, maintenance, security, and cleaning.
CAPEX reflects committed investments for GAP airports under the Master Development Program and investments in commercial spaces, parking lots, in addition to the hotel and mixed-use building at Guadalajara airport.
These figures are based on the Company’s current expectation of domestic and international aeronautical industry growth during 2023, as supported by GAP’s strategy of focusing on medium- and long-term business fundamentals.
These figures are estimates based on current assumptions that management believes are reasonable. Many of the factors affecting these current assumptions and the estimates on which they are based are outside of the Company’s control and are subject to change over the course of the year based on various external factors including, but not limited to, airline performance, domestic and international economic conditions, and government regulations.
