Passenger Numbers – Ciudad Juarez Airport

In the five years from 2010, Ciudad Juárez Airport registered consistent year-on-year annual increases in passenger numbers starting with 633,919 in 2010; in 2011 the number increased to 673,364 and then in 2012 increased to 699,394 passengers. In 2013, the number of people passing through the Terminal surpassed the 700,000 mark with 702,904 passengers, whilst in 2014 the number increased to 769,029 passengers.

Ciudad Juarez Airport handled 769,029 passengers in 2014, up 9.41% on 2013

In its annual passenger report for 2015, Grupo OMA declared that Ciudad Juarez Airport handled 863,760 passengers throughout the year, thus maintaining it in the group of seven OMA airports to register between a half a million and a million passengers annually. From that total, 762,958 were domestic, which translates to a healthy year-on-year increase of 12.4%.

In 2015, Juarez Airport registered an annual increase of 12.3% in its passenger numbers

Regarding the international market, just 802 of the total arrived to the airport on international flights, a drop of 24.2%. However, since Cd. Juárez is on the Mexico-US border, international travellers have never been that significant here, as can be seen by the fact that there are no international commercial routes at the terminal. In all, these results were positive, registering a total year-on-year increase of 12.3%, and thus maintaining it as the 4th most important of the 13-airport network run by the Group.

In 2016, Ciudad Juarez registered the 3rd largest percentage increase of all Mexico’s airports: 27.68%

The passenger numbers at Ciudad Juarez showed an impressive spike in 2016, adding over 239,000 passengers to the previous year’s total, and thus pushing the numbers at this border airport past the 1-million-passenger mark for the first time in history. The precise figure for the year 2016 being 1,102,855 passengers, and meaning that throughout 2016, no less than 16 airports in the Mexican Republic handled over a million passengers.

In 2016, Ciudad Juarez International Airport surpassed the million-passenger mark for the first time

Last year, this Airport continued with its positive passenger trend to register a further annual increase of 10.3%, the total number of passengers transitting the installations throughout the year being 1,173,135. This means that since 2004, when the Ciudad Juarez Terminal registered 569,105 passengers, the Airport has added over half-a-million passengers to its annual headcount, according to the official figures published by Grupo OMA.

In 2017, Ciudad Juarez handled 1,173,135 passengers, up over half a million more than in 2004

As far as Grupo OMA is concerned, Ciudad Juarez was the third airport operated by the Group to surpass the million-passenger mark over the last few years, together with Culiacan (in 2010) and Chuhuahua, in 2015; of course, Acapulco has passed the 1-million-passenger barrier on three occasions: 2000, 2007 and 2008, but has been unable to maintain these levels in recent years. Grupo OMA’s Mariano Escobedo International Airport -serving Monterrey- has been registering above a million passengers for many years; the next airport to pass the 1-million-passenger barrier operated by this Group should be Mazatlán, which should reach the magic number this year.

In 2018, Ciudad Juárez posted annual passenger growth of 16.3% with a total of 1,364,028 visitors passing through this Terminal

Ciudad Juárez registered a global passenger count of 1,364,028 throughout 2018, according to the official figures released by Grupo OMA, to post a healthy year-on-year increase of 16.3% for the period. These numbers were divided into the domestic niche with 1,359,631 passengers, up 16.2% over 2017, and the international market, which added the remaining 4,397 vistors to the installations; though still a very low number, this cross border figure represented an annual increase of 56.5% in this niche, certainly not to be scoffed at. The aforementioned numbers pushed Ciudad Juárez up one place on Mexico’s top airports list to #15.

Ciudad Juárez was the fourth most important airport -in terms of passenger numbers- among the airport network operated by Grupo OMA in 2018

According to the official statistics released by Grupo OMA -on Jan. 6, 2020- Cd. Juárez registered an annual increase in its global passenger figure for 2019 of 17.1%, the fourth largest increase among its 13 Mexican airport network, this Terminal having handled a total of 1,597,471 visitors throughout the period.

Ciudad Juárez maintained its position as Grupo OMA’s fourth most important airport in 2019 -in terms of passenger numbers- having handled over 1.5 mn. visitors for the first time in one year

The above figure was divided into 1,590,968 domestic passengers, to post an annual increase of exactly 17% in this niche, and -for its part- the international visitor numbers registered an impressive increase of 47.9%, though in reality the total figure only increased by 2,106 cross-border passengers to reach a total of 6,503 passengers.
