Passenger Traffic Overview

Total passenger traffic in October 2019 remained flat YoY, with traffic unchanged in Argentina, increases of 12.6% in Armenia and 1.8% in Italy, partially offset by declines in Brazil, Ecuador and Uruguay.

In Argentina, total passenger traffic remained flat YoY with 3.5 million passengers. Domestic passenger traffic was unchanged, facing difficult YoY comps as traffic in October 2018 had increased 16.5% YoY. In addition, Andes discontinued flights in October, but is gradually resuming operations in November, while Aerolíneas Argentinas’s flights were impacted by a pilot strike. Bad weather conditions at Aeroparque Airport also offset the continued good performance of new routes by existing and new airlines added during 2018 and 2019. International traffic declined 2.5% YoY, reflecting weak macro conditions in the country. In addition, low-cost carrier Flybondi added a new international route to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with three weekly flights, and announced a new international route to Sao Paulo, Brazil, to be opened early next year.

In Italy, passenger traffic increased 1.8% YoY, driven by growth of 12.0% at Florence Airport, mainly reflecting the good performance of the routes opened in September by Vueling to four new destinations and additional flights to Madrid by Iberia. This was partially offset by a 3.3% decline at Pisa airport, as the reduction of operations by Ryanair and Pobeda continue to impact traffic at this airport.

In Brazil, estimated figures are disclosed given delays in the submission of information for 547 flights out of a total of 14,047 flights, due to information systems transition by third parties. Passenger traffic declined 2.4% YoY, a recovery from the 9.4% drop experienced in September although still reflecting the cessation of operations by Avianca Brasil, partially offset by traffic growth driven by other airlines. Domestic passengers increased 3.8% YoY, reflecting a change in trends from the declines posted since April this year. International passenger traffic increased 48.7% YoY according to the new methodology introduced by ANAC, and 60.9% under the prior methodology, primarily reflecting Gol’s flights to Miami, Orlando, Buenos Aires and Cancún, together with Latam Airlines new route to Santiago de Chile, started in October. In addition, during October both Gol and Latam airlines increased domestic frequencies, in an effort to restore capacity at Brasilia Airport.

In Armenia, total passenger traffic increased 12.6%, benefiting from the addition of several routes and frequencies during 2018 and 2019, and the good performance of Azimuth Airlines’ flights to Russian destinations Krasnodar and Rostov, and Aircompany Armenia’s flights to regional destinations, as well as additional flights by Ural and Nordwind airlines to Moscow, Russia.

In Uruguay, passenger traffic declined 9.9% YoY, mainly reflecting the temporary cancellation of Avianca Colombia’s daily route to Bogotá, Colombia, anticipated to be restored in December. Traffic also reflects a decline in flights to Aeroparque, Argentina, given the continued weak macro environment in that country and flight cancellations to Chile given social unrest in the country. This was partially offset by the two additional frequencies to Madrid, Spain, opened by Iberia in July 2019.

In Ecuador, total passenger traffic declined 1.4% YoY, as growth of 8.5% in international traffic was more than offset by a 9.7% decline in domestic traffic, due to social unrest experienced in the country in October. International traffic growth was driven by the good performance of the route to Fort Lauderdale by JetBlue together with the start of operations by Interjet at Guayaquil Airport, which opened daily routes to both Cancún and Ciudad de México, México. Aeroméxico, however, discontinued its route to Ciudad de Mexico, as previously announced.

Cargo Volume and Aircraft Movements

Cargo volume declined 6.0% YoY in October 2019, mainly as a result of declines of 11.5% in Argentina and 25.3% in Ecuador, partially offset by an increase of 17.8% in Brazil.

Aircraft movements declined 5.1% YoY in October 2019, mainly as a result of declines of 7.6% in Argentina, 8.7% in Brazil and 19.5% in Uruguay, partially offset by increases of 22.8% in Armenia and 6.0% in Ecuador.
