TAMAULIPAS - The Ministry of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation (SICT) informed that it granted Grupo Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de México (GACM), the administration of the international airports General Servando Canales de Matamoros, Tamaulipas and Loreto, Baja California Sur.

This is justified in Article 90 of the Constitution, as well as Articles 3 and 9 of the Organic Law of the Federal Public Administration, whose purpose is to provide the country with sustainable and competitive airport infrastructure, in those areas where it is required and whose services stimulate the development of air transportation, the development of airports and air navigation services for national and international aviation.
Under the leadership of SEMAR, GACM will provide its administrative experience through its human capital and resources to implement public policies and best national and international practices in airport matters to improve safety in operations.
