Acapulco International Airport or Juan N. Alvarez General International Airport is located 16 km from the city of Acapulco in the state of Guerrero, Mexico.
Acapulco's airport, located on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, is frequented by many tourists coming mainly from Canada and the United States.
The airport has a capacity of 1.3 million passengers a year, and a tarmac capacity of 24 commercial aircraft in simultaneous operation.
In December 2022, VINCI Airports finalised the acquisition of Fintech’s 29.99% stake in OMA (Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte), thereby becoming the largest shareholder in this Mexican airport operator. The transaction follows the signature of an agreement with OMA’s former shareholder in July 2022.
With this stake in a company holding a concession that will mature in 25 years, VINCI Airports is moving into Mexico and, as OMA’s largest shareholder, it will contribute to operating 13 airports in a country with high growth potential.
In early 2023, Acapulco Airport and all of OMA’s Mexican airports received their first ACA accreditation.
