South American, Italian and Armenian private airport operator Corporación América Airports says its cargo volume increased 6.7% year on year in September to reach 97% of pre-Covid September 2019 levels, or 98.3% adjusted for the discontinuation of its operations in Peru.

Total cargo volume at all airports was 30,900 tons, versus 31,900 tonnes in September 2019.

Cargo volumes in Armenia, Ecuador and Uruguay were above pre-pandemic levels, but only 79.8% in Italy, 89.7% in Argentina and 92.9% in Brazil.

Almost 70% of the operator’s cargo volume originated in Argentina, Ecuador and Uruguay. In the operator’s largest market, Argentina, which accounts for over half the cargo total, volume increased 6.8% to reach 16,078 tons, although the country’s total remains over 10% down on its pre-pandemic level.

Worldwide passenger traffic meanwhile surged by 15.7% year-on-year to hit 98.9% of the September 2019 figure while aircraft movements increased 10.3% and surpassed September 2019 by 1.3%.

The company, based in Luxembourg and listed on the New York Stock Exchange, operates 53 airports in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Ecuador, Armenia and Italy.

Its portfolio includes Argentina’s two largest gateways, Ezeiza International and Aeroparque, Florence and Pisa in Italy, Brasilia and Yerevan International, the main airport in Armenia.
