Ciudad Juarez Airport, also known as Abraham Gonzalez International Airport, is the second most important airport in the state of Chihuahua, in Northern Mexico. It is located near the city of the same name, which borders the United States and the city of El Paso.
In this border city, the maquiladoras have established their main centers of operation with the installation of more than 400 factories in the automotive, electronics and textile industries.
Thanks to its location, the Ciudad Juárez airport has seen a growth of more than 25% in the number of passengers over the last decade.
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, Ciudad Juarez Airport and all of OMA’s Mexican airports received their first ACA accreditation.
