Revenues

The largest portion of the MAC's revenues, 46 percent, comes from concessions. Airline rates and charges generate 37 percent of the MAC's revenues. The other 17 percent comes from ground rental, lease rental, tenant utilities payments, general aviation and reliever airport fees, and miscellaneous sources.
