NEW YORK -- December 17, 2012

Macquarie Infrastructure Company (NYSE: MIC) operating companies
International-Matex Tank Terminals (“IMTT”) and Atlantic Aviation have largely
recovered from the effects of Hurricane Sandy. Both businesses report a
substantial return to normal operations after the storm.

IMTT reports that its bulk liquid storage facility at Bayonne, NJ is receiving
and delivering substantially all products by all modes of transport. While
permanent power has been restored to most of the facility, backup systems are
in place and working in those parts of the facility still without permanent

Atlantic Aviation’s fixed base operations at airports in Teterboro, NJ,
Farmingdale, L.I., and Bridgeport, CT, as well as its heliport on East 34th
Street in New York City were damaged or disrupted by the hurricane. Each
facility has been restored and normal operations have resumed.

“The staff and management of our businesses pulled together to restore these
operations with minimal impact on the financial performance of IMTT and
Atlantic Aviation in 2012,” said James Hooke, Chief Executive Officer of MIC.
“We’re grateful to them and to their families for their exceptional effort
during this time.”

MIC expects its financial results for the fourth quarter to reflect
approximately $2.3 million in payments of insurance deductibles and less than
$5 million in total impact from the storm.
