Zacatecas International Airport, also known as General Leobardo C. Ruiz, is an international airport located in Zacatecas, Mexico. The airport receives national and international air traffic from Zacatecas, a colonial city considered a World Heritage Site.
In addition to being a popular area for national and international tourists, Zacatecas is the largest silver producer state and the second largest producer of lead, copper, zinc and gold.
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, Zacatecas Airport and all of OMA’s Mexican airports received their first ACA accreditation.
