Aeroméxico will condone charges flights Canada after requisite Visa


MEXICO, July. 15.- AeroMéxico, the second largest airline of the country, will condone the charges that usually charges for change dated in flights planned to August 15 to Canada.
The airline decided to condone the charges extras by cancellation of flights after the announced fact Monday by Canada on the obligatory nature of the visa for Mexican citizens.
"This politics of flexibility applies for all the passengers of the network of AeroMéxico emitted in the different points of sale and only protects the cancellation of the charge by change dated in the route to Canada operated by AeroMexico", the airline in a communiqué said.
AeroMéxico flies every day from Mexico City to Toronto and two times for week to Montreal. The airline offers also flights to Vancouver by means of the agreement of code shared that has with Japan Airlines.
"In the case that the passenger decide not to utilize the service, the reimbursements remain subject to the rule of the rate acquired", emphasized the airline.

Very interesting find on AeroMexico's beginning to present...

History


AeroMéxico, the Story of a Great Company

What began as a dream in 1934 has now become a reality: a modern, safe, punctual, efficient and leading airline. AeroMéxico is a symbol of Mexican modernity and thanks to its global vision, focused on service and efficiency, it is today a major leader in Latin America. For AeroMéxico the sky has been the only limit because our vision and our dreams know no bounds.

Background (1934-1988)
Aeronaves de México

  • Antonio Díaz Lombardo created Aeronaves de México and the airline’s first plane was a Stinson SR piloted by Julio Zinser who made the inaugural flight on the Mexico-Acapulco route on September 14, 1934.
  • The scarcity of planes, parts and motors caused by World War II forced Don Antonio to seek a partner in the aeronautics field and on April 30, 1941 Aeronaves de México sold 25% of its shares to Pan American.
  • In 1955 the company had offices in 21 Mexican cities and another two in the United States. The fleet was comprised of 15 planes (12 were DC-3s, there were two DC-4s and a C-47 cargo plane) and soon afterwards four Convair would be added.
  • In 1957 permits were obtained to fly the Mexico - New York and Acapulco - Los Angeles routes. In the same year Mexican shareholders recovered the shares that had been sold to Pan American and two years later the federal government acquired the shares and assets of Aeronaves de México by decree.
  • By 1964 Aeronaves employed 2,980 people and offered domestic flights to 32 cities as well as international flights to various cities in the United States, Europe, Canada and South America. The Acapulco route, its first, now offered nine flights a day.
  • From 1964 to 1970 the government undertook an intense airport modernization process and offered support for airlines to acquire equipment.
  • In 1982 the economic crisis increased the dollar debts of the airline sector and made operations in this currency difficult. International passenger numbers dropped by 27% while domestic passenger numbers dropped by 7%.
  • On April 15, 1988 Aeronaves de México suffered a debilitating strike that led to the company going bankrupt and resulted in the suspension of operations. The audit commission was run by Banobras which contracted a small group of former employees to operate a dozen flights. Six months after bankruptcy the audit commission completed its task successfully and almost duplicated the number of flights, all of them domestic.

The Birth of a Great Company (1988-1990)
  • On October 1st, 1988 Aerovías de México, S.A. de C.V. was born, using the trading name AeroMéxico and the emblem of the Eagle Warrior. The airline began operations with 25 planes and a workforce of roughly 3,500 staff. The company’s priorities were to consolidate business and meet standards of punctuality, trustworthiness and care in the use of equipment while offering quality services that would win the public’s trust. The slogan used in advertising, "With the best we can offer", indicated the changes the company was going through.
  • In 1989 international flights were resumed and that same year the cargo company Aeromexpress was formed. At this time punctuality and the quality of services were the company’s best allies in the battle to gain an important position in the aviation market.

The Consolidation of AeroMéxico (1991-1995)
  • The Gulf War of 1991 affected the finances of the company and by the end of 1992 growth had dramatically slowed due to financial problems. Alfonso Pasquel was named Managing Director in December of that year and his first objective was to stabilize finances.
  • With the severe financial crisis of 1994 AeroMéxico faced the most serious challenge of its short history. Lending banks helped to restructure the company by renegotiating debt and injecting capital.
  • In 1995 efforts were oriented towards optimizing processes to strengthen the quality of services and products and the company’s philosophy was reformulated to adopt a business focus. AeroMéxico proposed making its routes more productive and generating aggregated value for company shareholders, maximizing income and reducing operational costs, as well as optimizing resources with an orientation towards results.

The Birth of CINTRA (1996)
  • On June 28, 1996 the International Air Transport Corporation (CINTRA – acronym in Spanish) was formed as a holding company for the shares of various air transport companies, but mainly AeroMéxico and Mexicana. This helped to increase competitive and geographical advantages and ensured that global markets could be served more efficiently.
  • With CINTRA, AeroMéxico formed part of a more competitive air transport system capable of competing with international companies. In this way it reinforced participation in markets and increased coverage through strategic alliances with other airlines.
  • In 1997 intense activity was undertaken to reorient the business and its growth, an effort baptized with the slogan ‘We are Building the Future Today’. This great idea served to integrate and unite company staff and demonstrated the will of the company to be a high performance organization focused on service and with a deep commitment to quality. Thanks to this reorientation the company achieved the best results in its history during the first half of 1997.

AeroMéxico Today
Aerovías de México celebrated its first decade of existence in 1998 and decided to redefine its business strategy by letting passengers choose its path. The structuring of the company in to three market segments –businesses, beaches and borders- allowed it to better respond to client needs and offer more competitive products. This service distinguishes AeroMéxico from its competitors and business partners.
  • In 1999 the company Philosophy was reviewed and it was decided to keep both the Mission and Vision intact. Long term goals were set and a business model devised that would allow the company to achieve and consolidate global competitiveness while maintaining its focus on the four strategic objectives: Profitability, Service, Markets and Development.
  • In June 2000 AeroMéxico, Air France, Delta and Korean Air founded a new global air alliance: Sky Team. This alliance –which was later joined by Czech Airlines, Alitalia, Continental, KLM and Northwest- allows partners to compete at the global level and offer multiple benefits for customer satisfaction.
  • In the same year the Planning and Emergency Response Program was inaugurated which represented a major advance for an area that had always represented a permanent commitment for AeroMéxico. With respect to organizational culture, the four business objectives became seven Strategic Priorities that serve to guide every action taken by the company.
  • An Optical Reader system was incorporated in 2001 without leading to delays in passenger documentation and this has saved the company millions. This same year the Service Solutions Program was launched and it has allowed us to increase our effectiveness and satisfaction both personally and as a company.
  • In 2002 Pope John Paul II chose AeroMéxico for the third time when making his return flight to the Vatican after his fifth pastoral visit to Mexico. An advertising campaign was launched that proved to be the most significant in the industry for many years: Travel Free for the Rest of Your Life.
  • In 2003 the company celebrated its 15th anniversary and inaugurated the AeroMéxico Museum so that visitors could fly back in time. In 2003 another successful advertising campaign was launched: Earned Vacations.
  • In 2003 we began a fleet renovation program with the acquisition of Boeing B737 planes equipped with Winglets that permit fuel savings of up to 4%. The new fleet of latest generation B737s reaffirms AeroMéxico’s position as a leader in the airline industry.
  • In 2004 we began the year faced with important challenges that demanded we make a concerted effort and reinforce our commitment and thanks to this approach we managed to overcome the severe turbulence. Despite the fact that countless adverse factors –many of them unrelated to the industry – clouded the horizon for airlines throughout the world, the Eagle Warrior came through with flying colors.
  • Aerolitoral began operations at the Mexico City International Airport as part of a reorganization program for routes and services with the goal of strengthening the presence of AeroMéxico on the national market.
  • In 2005 AeroMéxico became the first airline to offer important new services to customers by allowing them to use electronic tickets for documenting their flights and obtaining their proof of purchase by means of aWeb Check-in service operated through the aeromexico.com portal.
  • In 2006 AeroMéxico took receipt of the largest plane to use the national flag, the Boeing 777-200ER, with capacity for more than 270 passengers. These planes place AM on a par with the major European airlines flying the Mexico-Madrid and Mexico-Paris routes. In the same year operation of the Air Maintenance Company (EMA – acronym in Spanish) program began.

AeroMéxico is the first Mexican airline to establish regular flights between Mexico and Japan using the Mexico-Tijuana-Narita route.

  • In 2007 flights to Buenos Aires, Managua and San Pedro Sula, all in Latin America, were added to the schedule and in addition Barcelona was added to the network of routes run by AeroMéxico, thereby consolidating our leadership in flights to Spain.

Aerolitoral changed its business name to AeroMéxico Connect in order to more successfully link its efficient operation to the Eagle
Warrior brand. At the same time the company introduced Embraer 190 jets to the fleet and these can carry up to 99 passengers in two cabins: 11 in Premier Class and 88 in Tourist Class.

  • In 2008 China became the latest AeroMéxico destination with two weekly flights on the Mexico-Tijuana-Shanghai route. AM Travel also began operations offering charter flights while the addition of flights to Italy using the Mexico-Monterrey-Rome route served to increase the AM network.
  • In 2009 aeromexico.com was renovated and its new functions, design and content have made it a point of reference in the industry. In this way the company meets its commitment to offer users the latest services oriented towards improving their flying experience, even before take-off.

Travel south of the border may not soar out of New Orleans



Posted: Monday, 20 July 2009 5:40AM
Don Ames Reporting
www.wwl.com

Now that AeroMexico has six weekly nonstop flights between New Orleans and Mexico City, will leisure travel south of the border see a significant increase?

Jim Pratt, with Eagle Travel, doesn't see much of a benefit for local travel agents or tourists. "The aircraft, maximum, can hold fifty people and it goes down there six days a week. So I don't think that that's set up to be a leisure instigator."

"I see this flight as a commercial success...a business success," says Pratt. He sees American businessmen using the flights to conduct business. And, he envisions Mexican businessmen doing the same here...or, perhaps residents coming here for medical treatment.

Listen to Don Ames' conversation with Pratt:
Listen:


Pratt acknowledges there will be some leisure travelers who'll fly to Mexico City. "But it's certainly not going to exist on the scale that people flock to Cancun or Cozumel or Belize or places like that," says Pratt. A trip to the Caribbean is around $800 per ticket whereas Mexico City is in the $500 per ticket range.

However, he feels that business may grow if the flights prove popular. He'd like to see a change in the itinerary and have the flights continue to Cabo San Lucas, rather than Honduras.

Southeastern Louisiana has the fastest growing Hispanic population in the United States, with almost 250,000 Latino residents including more than 80,000 Hondurans.

The two-hour direct flights to Mexico City in the center of the country may open up travel to cities on the west coast of Mexico. A trip to Puerto Vallarta on Mexico's Pacific coast may be cheaper than it would have been without a direct flight to Mexico City.

AeroMexico is New Orleans' first international flight service since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but is no stranger, having operated here years ago.

AeroMexico passengers forced to evacuate

Tuesday, July 21, 2009 | 5:19 PM

SFO, CA (KGO) -- A problem with an AeroMexico plane forced the airline to evacuate passengers at SFO Tuesday morning.

The plane, AeroMexico Flight 665, began pushing away from the gate when the pilot reported a problem with the front landing gear.
The pilot said he could not steer the plane, and some reports say the gear partially collapsed.
The passengers were not injured. They were taken off the plane and put on a different flight to Mexico.

AeroMexico Expands San Francisco Service with Five Weekly, Non-Stop Flights to Hermosillo, Mexico



Service is Airline’s Second Route in San Francisco Since Market Added to North American Operations in February 2009


July 23, 2009 10:46 AM Eastern Daylight Time



HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AeroMexico has added five weekly, non-stop flights between San Francisco and Hermosillo, Mexico, the airline’s first expansion of service in San Francisco since the market was added to its North American operations in February 2009. Flights depart San Francisco International Airport at 1:45 p.m. PDT and arrive in Hermosillo at 4:00 p.m. PDT every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Return flights depart Hermosillo at 10:30 a.m., arriving in San Francisco at 12:45 p.m. on the same days. Convenient, connecting flights are available daily in Hermosillo to five other destinations throughout Mexico – Los Mochis, Culiacan, Ciudad Obregon, Chihuahua and Monterrey. The airline also offers daily non-stop flights between San Francisco and Mexico City.
Frank Galan, Vice President, North America Division, AeroMexico, said, “AeroMexico has expanded its San Francisco operations just five months after entering the market because passenger traffic has been very solid. We’re confident that the airline’s new service to Hermosillo will be as well received as our flights to Mexico City. Advance bookings have been quite healthy, which means a real need exists for this service among family and friends in these markets, vacationers and business travelers.”
The new route expands the airline’s presence in California, which is already AeroMexico’s largest U.S. market with four cities served – San Francisco, Los Angeles, Ontario and San Diego. It is also the ninth route added to the airline’s North American operations in 2009.
“California stands out as AeroMexico’s most important U.S. market. We plan to continue to add new routes within the state as part of our strategic expansion of the airline’s North American operations,” added Galan.
Passengers on the new route will benefit from the outstanding value provided by the airline’s competitive fares and premier style of award-winning service. On every two-hour, fifteen-minute flight, they will travel on ERJ-145 regional jets, which comfortably seat 50 passengers. Travelers will receive personalized, attentive in-flight service that includes complimentary beverages and snacks. The airline earned “Best Airline in Mexico” awards in 2008 from readers of both Global Traveler and Business Traveler magazines.
AeroMexico and its subsidiary, AeroMexico Connect, operate more than 600 daily flights through the airline’s new Terminal 2 at its Mexico City International Airport hub to more than 45 destinations in Mexico, 17 U.S. cities in 12 states, two cities in two Canadian provinces, and major international destinations that include Tokyo, Paris and Buenos Aires in 12 other countries worldwide. AeroMexico Vacations provides customized vacation travel packages throughout the airline’s service network. The airline also offers connecting service to other international destinations through its SkyTeam global airline alliance with 14 other carriers. AeroMexico has been recognized for its award-winning style of personalized in-flight service, one of the world’s best on-time flight records, the highest safety and quality standards ratings, outstanding reliability and baggage handling performance, and exceptional value based on its competitive fares and superior service.

^ No, I meant dated...

dat⋅ed  /ˈdeɪtɪd/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [dey-tid] Show IPA
Use dated in a Sentence
–adjective 1. having or showing a date: a dated record of all meetings.
2. out-of-date; old-fashioned: a nostalgic program of dated songs.
