Corporación América Airports saw its cargo volume increase 22.8% year on year in January 2022 compared to the year before.

The company said it achieved a cargo volume of 25,100 tons in January compared to 20,400 thousand tons in January 2021.

However, this is a 24% drop compared to January 2019, when a cargo volume of 33,000 tons was recorded.

The company said this is “mainly driven by decreases of 33.3% in Brazil and 27.6% in Argentina, accounting for over 90% of the reduction”.

It added: “Importantly, Italy and Armenia reported higher cargo volumes compared to pre-pandemic levels of January 2019.”

Aircraft movement increased 45.1% year on year. When compared to January 2019, Aircraft movements declined 32.0%, or 29.9% excluding Peru, mainly as a result of a 37.1% decrease in Argentina, which explains over 60% of the overall drop.

Additionally, aircraft movement in Armenia, Brazil and Ecuador stood at 89.9%, 83.7% and 79.3% of January 2019 levels, respectively.

Corporación América Airports currently operates 53 airports in six countries across Latin America and Europe (Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Ecuador, Armenia and Italy).
