Aeromexico Share on email Print this article Share on Facebook Aeromexico story by: Tom Ricketts Aeromexico is the national flag carrier of Mexico, and the country’s largest airline. They operate from their hub in Mexico City, as well as the city of Monterrey. The airline can trace its history back to 1934 and was once owned in part by PanAm. The airline was one of the founding members of the SkyTeam alliance which includes Air France/KLM, Delta and China Airlines. > VIEW HOT AEROMEXICO DEALS HERE THE ESSENTIALS Name: Aeromexico.

Most of the airport is noticeably old, and it operates way past its capacity. Because of this, lines at immigration and security etc can be long. Most bags go through a scanner, but travellers are then asked to press a button which will make a light flash red or green. Green and you pass through unobstructed, but if red flashes, it means they’ll do a manual search of your bag. Aeromexico have their own terminal (Terminal 2) at the airport which is new, and a much better experience all round. The airport is located relatively close to the CBD, and taxis are strictly vetted to ensure a safe ride for tourists. A new airport is being built to replace the incumbent, and should be ready by 2020. Some airlines (mainly lowcost carriers) also use Toluca Airport which is about 30 minutes away. > VIEW HOT AEROMEXICO DEALS HERE Enquire Now First name* Last name* Email* Phone How can we help?
