Air Transport: Passenger Traffic Increases

Investments in air terminals together with the increase in demand for local flights, are the reason for the increase in passenger traffic in Honduras reported in recent years.

Monday, February 18, 2019

According to figures from the country's airport authorities, in the 2000 the flow of travelers in the country's airports totaled 1.1 million, however, in 2018 the figure ranged between 2.2 million and 2.4 million.

Regarding the investments made in the air terminals, reports that "... Since 2000, when the concession for Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, Roatán and La Ceiga airports began, the investment in the four terminals has exceeded 1.5 billion Lempiras ($65 million). Toncontín and La Mesa are the ones that have had the greatest investments, with about 60% of the global amount."

Another factor that has influenced passenger traffic is the demand for domestic flights. Regarding the subject, explains the article that "... There is a larger segment of the population living in Honduras that uses airplanes as transport to the interior of the country. The passengers use the flights to carry out their personal, business and tourism errands,' said executives of companies that provide services at Toncontín Airport."
