Mazatlán International Airport, or General Rafael Buelna International Airport, is located in Mazatlán, in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico.
Mazatlán Airport is the second most important airport in Sinaloa, after Culiacán International Airport, and has a terminal with two halls. It is one of the four airports in Mexico to have a control center: Centro Mazatlán, which controls air traffic over the northwestern part of the country.
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, Mazatlán Airport and all of OMA’s Mexican airports received their first ACA accreditation.
