The announcement of the tariff rates and capital master plans, approved by the Mexican authorities, for the coming four year business period, eliminates an element of uncertainty regarding business conditions in the Mexican Airport sector.

Investment decisions benefit from certainty, and certainty, on a revenue modelling framework, now exists.
