Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico Ensures Quick Recovery After Hurricane Beryl Hits Jamaican Airports

Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico, S.A.B. de C.V. (GAP), a leading airport operator in Mexico, successfully managed the impact of Hurricane Beryl on the Montego Bay and Kingston airports in Jamaica. The airports were temporarily closed as a precautionary measure, but GAP swiftly implemented necessary measures to resume operations.

On July 3, both Montego Bay and Kingston airports were closed due to the passage of Hurricane Beryl. The Montego Bay airport did not sustain any significant damage, allowing operations to resume on July 4 at 6:00 p.m. However, the Kingston Airport experienced minor roof damage in the passenger boarding area. To ensure passenger safety, the airport remained closed on July 4 to implement corrective measures and is set to reopen at 5:00 a.m. on Friday, July 5. Fortunately, the runways, aprons, and terminals were unaffected, enabling the airports to reopen promptly.

As of last night, Hurricane Beryl’s center was located more than 100 km southwest of Negril Point, Jamaica, ruling out any further effects on the island’s coastal areas. GAP’s property insurance covers such natural disasters, mitigating any significant economic impact.

Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico operates 12 airports in Mexico’s Pacific region, including major cities like Guadalajara and Tijuana, as well as popular tourist destinations such as Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, La Paz, and Manzanillo. Additionally, the company serves six mid-sized cities: Hermosillo, Guanajuato, Morelia, Aguascalientes, Mexicali, and Los Mochis. GAP’s commitment to efficient operations and quick recovery in the face of challenges highlights its dedication to providing excellent airport services.

In 2006, GAP’s shares were listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “PAC” and on the Mexican Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “GAP.” The company expanded its operations in Jamaica by acquiring a majority stake in MBJ Airports Limited, which operates Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, in April 2015. Furthermore, GAP entered into a concession agreement for the Norman Manley International Airport operation in Kingston in October 2018, assuming control in October 2019.

GAP prioritizes transparency and accountability by implementing a “whistleblower” program, allowing individuals to anonymously report any suspected criminal conduct or violations. The program ensures that GAP’s Audit Committee is promptly notified of all complaints for immediate investigation. To facilitate reporting, a dedicated telephone number (800 04 ETICA or 38422) and WhatsApp contact (+52 55 6538 5504) are available, along with the website www.lineadedenunciagap.com and email address denuncia@lineadedenunciagap.com.

Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico’s swift response to Hurricane Beryl’s impact on Jamaican airports demonstrates its commitment to passenger safety and operational excellence. The company’s ability to quickly recover from such challenges is a testament to its resilience and dedication to providing reliable airport services.
