Monterrey, Mexico, May 25, 2018—Mexican airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, S.A.B. de C.V., known as OMA (NASDAQ: OMAB; BMV: OMA), inaugurated the new Acapulco airport terminal building in a ceremony presided by the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, the Secretary of Communications and Transportation, Gerardo Ruiz Esparza, the Governor of the State of Guerrero, Héctor Astudillo Flores, and the Undersecretary of Transportation, Yuriria Mascott Pérez, among other invitees. The OMA delegation was led by Chairman of the Board Diego Quintana and Chief Executive Officer Porfirio González.

After the unveiling of the commemorative plaque, OMA provided detailed information on its investment in the Acapulco airport. “This building represents a generational change in infrastructure and a complete renewal of the airport’s image. It was constructed using intelligent engineering techniques, as part of an integrated project for both the structure and all its equipment,” said CEO Porfirio Gonzalez.

The project includes systems for operations, security, energy efficiency, passenger check-in, baggage screening, boarding, and energy use monitoring, among others.

The terminal building is 100% operational and meets the highest international standards of quality.

Diego Quintana, Chairman of the Board, commented: “This project demonstrates the OMA’s commitment and coordination with federal, state, and municipal governments to work together on the renewal of the image of Acapulco, one of Mexico’s most important tourist destinations, and to increase its attraction for visitors. Airports are key elements in the development of tourism, and OMA continues to work hand in hand with the authorities, service providers, airlines, and hotel operators to achieve this objective.”
