/EIN News/ --  During September 2018, domestic traffic increased in all our airports, with the largest increases in:

In September 2018, Vivaaerobus started flying the Monterrey – Morelia route.

International traffic grew in ten airports in September, with the largest increase in Monterrey (+3.6%), as a result of increases in the number of passengers on the Houston route.

Of total passenger traffic, 99.2% was commercial, and 0.8% was general aviation.
