OMA Reports A 6.9% Increase In September 2012 Passenger Traffic

MONTERREY, Mexico, Oct. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mexican airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, S.A.B. de C.V., known as OMA (Nasdaq:OMAB) (BMV:OMA), reports that terminal passenger traffic at its 13 airports increased 6.9% in September 2012, as compared to September 2011. Domestic traffic increased 6.6%, and international traffic increased 8.9%. Traffic volumes have increased for thirteen months in a row, starting in September 2011, as a result of the recovery of the air transport industry in Mexico and OMA's actions in coordination with the government and private sector to promote greater air connectivity in the markets where our airports are located.

Of total September traffic, 97.4% was commercial aviation and 2.6% was general aviation.
