Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste, S.A.B. de C.V., known as ASUR, is a Mexican airport operator headquartered in Mexico City, Mexico. It operates 9 airports in the southeastern states of Mexico, including that of Cancun. It is the third largest airport services company by passenger traffic in Mexico. It serves approximately 23 million passengers annually.
ASUR was created in 1996 as the Mexican government started the privatisation of the country airport network. In 2000, ASUR launched its IPO on the NYSE (through ADRs) and the Mexican Stock Exchange, making 74.9% of the capital public. In 2004, Fernando Chico Pardo becomes the main shareholder of the company. In 2005, the government privatized its remaining 11.1% shares it owned in ASUR, making the company 100% privately-held.
In November 2011, ASUR agreed to sell 49% of its shares of Inversiones y Tecnicas Aeroportuarias (ITA) to the transport company ADO.
