According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), airline activity has returned to levels seen prior to the COVID-19 crisis. As of the May cutoff, international connections had recovered 90.8% from their four-year lows. An estimated 4.350 million additional individual airline trips will be made by the June 2023 deadline, almost matching the record 4,540 flights seen in 2019.

The Los Cabos International Airport has made a sizable comeback. With 2,900 more commercial flights, it welcomed over four million passengers in the first half of the year, up 12% from the same period last year. Additionally, compared to May 2019, there were 28% more seats available at the airport in May 2023. Raul Revuelta Musalem, CEO of Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico (GAP), said that this is exceptional as a complete recovery and is infrequently observed in other international air terminals.

It is amazing how the number of seats at the destination increased by 28% between May 2023 and May 2019 (before the pandemic). This is not something that occurs in nearly every airport in the world; it is special. The important thing is that they have been able to hold onto these seats. The significant growth occurred when we were in the midst of the pandemic; you may recall that Canada and the Caribbean were off-limits to Americans at the time. Basically, Los Cabos became a safe destination for traffic from the United States.

Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacfico emphasized that Los Cabos continues to post positive numbers despite the fact that its main rivals, the Caribbean and Europe, are already operating at 100% of their capacity for tourist arrivals.

Revuelta Musalem, the general director, noted that 20 million tourists are anticipated to travel through Los Cabos International Airport over the course of the next ten years, an average growth of 7% to 10%.

It was revealed during the formation of the Los Cabos International Airport Advisory Board that Volaris had the highest number of passengers transferred in the first semester of 2023 with 758,952 passengers, followed by American Airlines with 611,236 travelers, and then VivaAerobus with 414,694 passengers.

4,029,548 people have traveled through Los Cabos International Airport overall, and by the end of 2023, officials anticipate that number to exceed 7 million.
