Aena International's stake in Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico SAB de CV (GAP), which operates 12 airports in Mexico, is held via the company Aeropuertos Mexicanos del Pacífico, SAPI de CV (AMP), which in its turn is a strategic partner of GAP. It owns 17.4% of its capital and has signed a technical assistance contract. Aena International is the operating partner of AMP, with a 33.33% stake in its capital.

GAP, one of the largest privatised airport groups on the American continent, comprises the airports of Aguascalientes, Bajío, Guadalajara, Hermosillo, La Paz, Los Mochis, Manzanillo, Mexicali, Morelia, Puerto Vallarta, San José del Cabo and Tijuana.

On 20 April 2015 GAP acquired 100% of the shares of the Spanish society Desarrollo de Concesiones Aeroportuarias, SL (DCA). DCA has a 74.5% shareholding in the society MBJ Airports Limited (MBJA), the company that operates the Sangster International (MBJ) airport in the city of Montego Bay, Jamaica. Also, in October 2018 GAP closed with the Government of Jamaica the transaction to operate, modernize and expand the Norman Manley International Airport in the city of Kingston (Jamaica) by signing a 25-year concession contract with a possible extension of 5 years; GAP took control of the operation and administration of the airport in October 2019.

In 2019 the total passenger traffic in group airports was 48.7 million (43.6 million at Mexican airports, 4.7 million at Montego Bay and 0.4 million at Kinstom), 8.4 per cent more than in 2018. GAP revenue in 2019 reached 16.2 billion Mexican pesos (618.6 million euros), with net profits of 5.4 billion pesos (208 million euros).

GAP recently completed the extension of the Guadalajara airport terminal, increasing the terminal area by 35% and the boarding gates by 40%, as well as the refurbishment and extension of the Hermosillo airport terminal with two new boarding gates equipped with airbridges. In 2019, the expansion and refurbishment of the Tijuana airport terminal is expected to enter into service, along with the remodelling and extension of Guanajuato airport.
