Monterrey International Airport, also known as General Mariano Escobedo International Airport, is a domestic and international airport serving the city of Monterrey. It is the second largest city in Mexico, the capital of the state of Nuevo León and the industrial capital of the country. The city of Monterrey has a population of 1.1 million.
The Monterrey airport is the busiest in northern Mexico and the fourth busiest in the country. It accounts for nearly half of OMA's passenger traffic.
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, Monterrey Airport and all of OMA’s Mexican airports received their first ACA accreditation.
