DALLAS — The new Mexicana (MX) aims to offer LCC fares between 18% and 20% cheaper than existing airlines by leveraging synergies with other state operators.
The plans presented this week for the launch of the new state airline do not involve the granting of subsidies to the airline. However, it remains to be seen how other airlines will perceive this as potential unfair competition.
The objective of this initiative is to generate more competitiveness in the local market. General Luis Cresencio Sandoval, the Secretary of National Defense who oversees Mexicana de Aviación, announced that the main base of the airline will be at Felipe Ángeles International Airport (NLU), another symbol of the aeronautical work of the López Obrador administration.
Additionally, a second base will be established at Felipe Carrillo International Airport (FCQ) in Tulum, Quintana Roo, upon completion of construction.
The airlines’ network of destinations will include flights from NLU to Cancun, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Tijuana, Campeche, Chetumal, Merida, Puerto Vallarta, Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Cozumel, Los Cabos, Hermosillo, Ciudad Juarez, Villahermosa, Huatulco, Oaxaca, Acapulco, Mazatlan, La Paz, and Leon.
In parallel, infrastructure works will be carried out at the airports of Apodaca, Tulum, Ciudad Ixtepec, Ciudad Victoria, Nuevo Laredo, Ciudad del Carmen, Ciudad Obregón, Loreto, Palenque, Nogales, Puebla, Tamuín, Uruapan, Matamoros, Colima, and Guaymas, so that they are ready to receive operations with the airline’s Boeing 737-800s.
