Passenger Numbers – Hermosillo Airport


Throughout the last decade, passenger numbers at Hermosillo International Airport have registered positive results every year -except for the year 2013- and increased from 1,138,300 passengers -in 2010- to register 1,874,100 visitors arriving/departing the installations in 2019, so all in all, the trend is definately upwards at HMO, having added almost 750,000 to the passenger count over the 10-year period.

From 2010 to 2019, Hermosillo upped its passenger count by almost three quarters of a million to close the decade at #11 on Mexico’s busiest airports list

By 2012, this airport handled 1,288,700 passengers, followed by a slight dip -in 2013- when the Terminal registered an annual contraction having registered a total of 1,276,201 passengers -down just 12,500 approx. on the previous year- and then -in 2014- the trend returned to positive numbers with 1,277,897 visitors arriving/departing Hermosillo by air to post a slight recovery -up 0.13%- compared with 2013.

Hermosillo remained as the tenth busiest airport in Mexico in 2014, with 1,277,897 passengers

Throughout 2015, Hermosillo Airport handled 1,309,763 passengers, again a positive result, this time giving an annual increase of 2.49%, though the negative aspect was that the terminal closed the year in position #11 on Mexico’s busiest airports list, thus slipping one position compared with 2014. These numbers place this terminal as the 6th most important airport in Grupo GAP’s Mexican airport network, also a slip of one position, losing a position to the Leon Del Bajío Airport, which repaced HMO at #5 among GAP’s 12 airports within the Republic.

Hermosillo Airport slipped one position on Mexico’s busiest airports list in 2015, to #11

There was a more respectable year-on-year gain here at Hermosillo in 2016, with a total of 1,525,884 passengers to give a 16.5% overall increase. In the domestic niche the annual increase was 15.9% whilst the international sector registered an annual increase of 12.8%. Then, in 2017, a 4.4% global increase saw the Airport handle 1,593,214 passengers, of which 60,484 were from the international niche, a significant drop in this sector -down almost 20%- compared with 2016, meaning the Airport dropped no less than 4 places on the busiest Mexican airports list -in the international arena- to position #23.

Despite negative international results at Hermosillo in 2017, it maintained its place at #11 on Mexico’s top airports list

In 2018, the Hermosillo International Airport bounced back from its negative international passenger numbers of 2017 to handle a global total of 1,743,800 passengers throughout 2018 and thus register an annual passenger increase of 7.1% for the period, after upping the global headcount by 116,000 above the previous year.

Hermosillo International Airport once again registered positive global passenger numbers in 2018, with a total headcount of 1,743,800 passengers, up 7.1% over the previous year

Of the above total, the domestic niche contributed with 1,674,900 passengers throughout 2018 to post an annual increase of 7.2% in this sector, whilst the international arena added a further 68,800 passengers to register a year-on-year gain of exactly 6% for this cross border niche at Hermosillo for 2018, certainly good news for this, the 6th busiest airport of Grupo GAP’s Mexican airport network.

In 2018, Hermosillo managed to maintain itself -once again- at #11 on Mexico’s top airports list

Throughout 2019, the global total passenger count registered 1,874,100 visitors to give a year-on-year increase of 7.5% and maintain the upward trend at this Terminal -for the 7th consecutive year- to close the last decade on a positive note and maintain itself at #11 on the country’s busiest airports list. The domestic niche at HMO -in 2019- increased its passenger numbers -by 7.7%- for the year, having contributed 1,803,800 to the total, and -for its part- the international sector posted a visitor headcount of 70,200 passengers, up 2.1% over the previous year, once again maintaining its position at #6 among Grupo GAP’s Mexican airport network.

Hermosillo posted a global passenger increase of 7.5% -in 2019- with the domestic niche up 7.7% and the international sector up 2.1% year-on-year

Grupo GAP releases its passenger statistics rounded up to the nearest hundred, which is why the above numbers end in at least two zeros
