Introduction to Los Mochis Airport


The Los Mochis Int. Airport codes are as follows: IATA CODE: LMM // ICAO CODE: MMLM

The International Airport of Los Mochis, also known as the Valle del Fuerte International Airport, lies 18 Kilometres to the southeast of Los Mochis -in Sinaloa State- along the Los Mochis-Topolobambo Highway and is operated by Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico, S.A.B. de C. V. (Grupo GAP).

The Valle del Fuerte International Airport was originally opened by ASA on April 27, 1982

Los Mochis initially inaugurated what was called the Cerro de la Memoria airfield on March 1, 1929., but these installations were replaced by the present-day airport, originally opened to the public on April 27, 1982., under the administration of Aeropuertos y Servicios Auxiliares (ASA).

Los Mochis Airport is a gateway to the Copper Canyon –Barrancas del Cobre– Chihuahua

Then, with the creation of Grupo GAP, the installations were handed over to the newly created private group in 1998, since when it has formed part of the 12-airport network operated by GAP. Although this airport is classified as international, it currently offers only domestic routes. Regarding passenger numbers, in 2017, Los Mochis Airport was number 11 of the 12 Mexican terminals that make up Grupo GAP’s airport network, see below for more details.
