Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico, S.A.B. de C.V. Announcement Regarding Swine Flu Virus

GUADALAJARA, JALISCO, Mexico, April 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE: PAC; BMV: GAP) ("the Company" or "GAP" today announced the following:

On Sunday, April 26, 2009, the Mexican National Health Department confirmed the existence of Type A and B viruses in humans as well as the circulation of another strain of the virus, called Swine Influenza (Swine Flu Virus).

As a result of the alerts, the Health Departments located in most of the Mexican states where GAP's airports operate initiated epidemiology surveillance posts to be on the lookout for any persons affected by the symptoms, in order to maintain control over this outbreak and grant timely attention and follow up to those persons showing any signs of the virus. These symptoms are:

  • Fever higher than 102.2 degrees F (39 degrees C),
  • Frequent and intense cough,
  • Headache,
  • Loss of appetite,
  • Nasal congestion, and
  • Muscle and joint pain.

We are offering the health authorities all of the support required for any activity they consider necessary at each of our airports.

With the support of the airlines and the authorities that interact at each of the terminal areas, we will be able to detect any passenger showing any of these signs. These passengers must be channeled via the control posts so that the Health Department can review the situation and, if necessary, take samples to rule out if the passenger is a carrier of the swine influenza virus.

Today, operations at the airports that GAP operates remained normal, that is, there were no cancellations of national or international flights.

The Company, together with the airport authorities and the airlines will be in constant communications in order to update the market on instructions from the Health Department.

It is important to mention that at this moment we do not know the full impact that this situation will have of passenger traffic; this will depend on the amount of time that the risk is prolonged.

If necessary, the Company will issue another press release to inform regarding the measures established at the Company's airports.
