GUADALAJARA, Mexico, Jan. 04, 2022 (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 December 2021, which includes comparisons with the 2019 and 2020 figures to facilitate the reading and understanding of the passenger traffic trend.

For December 2021, the total number of terminal passengers at GAP’s 12 Mexican airports increased by 4.1%, compared to the same period of 2019.
