AeroMexico Announces New Products and Services to Enhance Passengers' Travel Experiences




April 28, 2010 1629 +0000 UTC
MEXICO CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- AeroMexico announced today new innovations, products and customer services at the Tianguis Turistico tourist fair in Acapulco. New innovations include growing service offerings to the airline's predominant domestic destinations through the "Voy Vuelvo" (fly and return in one day) option the airline is implementing.

The airline's new alternative will help strengthen AeroMexico's presence in the Mexican Southeastern and Gulf regions by offering connecting flights through Veracruz; consolidating the airlines' number of flights in strong U.S. markets with the scheduling of red eye flights; supplementing markets to feed the Guadalajara, Monterrey and Hermosillo hubs, and standardizing flight connections transit times to guarantee reliability of the airline's on time performance.

"We will offer more than 1,300 weekly flights to all Voy Vuelvo destinations with 200 additional weekly round-trip flights to key destinations, such as Acapulco, Cancun, Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Culiacan, Guadalajara, Merida, Monterrey, Tampico, Veracruz, Villahermosa and Zihuatanejo in Mexico, and to international destinations, such as Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and New York," said Andres Conesa, CEO of AeroMexico. "In addition, Grupo AeroMexico total network service will grow from 1,700 to 1,900 weekly round-trip flights."

AeroMexico also announced its new "AEROMEXICO PLUS" product, a new seating class service between the Clase Premier and Economy class cabins that includes the sale of preferred seats located in the two front rows on the airline's next generation Boeing 737 aircraft. AeroMexico Plus passengers will be entitled to preferred boarding and customer services at Clase Premier check-in counters, among other important benefits.

The airline's digital media reinforcement program will now allow international passengers to access Aeromexico's flight information through Orbitz, Expedia and Travelocity websites, thanks to the airline's 2009 sales level category, while offering on the new aeromexico.com website the Fare Families option which passengers can use to compare different family categories and their features.

"All of these new products and services are framed within our new image campaign titled, "WHEREVER YOUR DREAMS TAKE YOU", a concept that is based on the fact that we believe trips are more than simple travel from one destination to another," said Conesa. "Trips are full of dreams and excitement, regardless of whether your travels are based on leisure, family or business needs," added Conesa. "Passengers on each segment have a dream, and passengers and dreams are two causes that drive and inspire AeroMexico."

The CEO also mentioned the agreement the airline recently signed with Groupe Aeroplan -an international leader in loyalty programs based in Canada-, through which Aeroplan will purchase minority shares in AeroMexico's Club Premier frequent flyer program.

One of the major benefits Club Premier Members will immediately start to notice as a result of this alliance is the segmentation and speed of messages, emails and general announcements they receive from the airline that will offer greater flexibility in designing and implementing valuable promotions.

"Forthcoming changes in the Club Premier Program will offer greater availability of award ticket seats on AeroMexico, growing possibilities for Club Premier Members to be able to redeem their Premier Kilometers or Miles for free travel, thus further enhancing the value of each Kilometer or Mile they accrue," said Conesa. "I know passengers will be delighted with these changes that will continue to position Club Premier as the most attractive loyalty program in Mexico."

Some of the changes made to the Club Premier program will allow passengers to redeem their Premier Miles or Kilometers for travel on the entire modern AeroMexico fleet as of June 1, 2010, as they will no longer be limited to date, class or seat restrictions. The number of Premier Miles or Kilometers required for redemption purposes will be determined at the time Club Premier Members finalize their individual transactions.

Moreover, AeroMexico reaffirms its position as the major airline in Mexico, which leads the domestic market, offers the largest number of long-range flights, and is the only airline in Latin America to serve three continents.

The above mentioned announcements are all new additions apart from AeroMexico's recent 2.0 digital platform launch, its alliance with Sabre Airline Solutions to start operating the newest and most modern reservations system for travel agencies, and the fresh cabin crew uniforms the airline featured at the DFashion show.

Mexico antitrust regulator open to airline merger




MEXICO CITY
Mon May 3, 2010 5:44pm EDT
(Reuters) - Mexico's two largest airlines, AeroMexico and Mexicana, could merge without hurting competition, Federal Competition Commission Chairman Eduardo Perez Motta said on Monday.

While it would take a careful evaluation of each route the airlines serve, antitrust concerns could be overcome, Perez Motta said in comments to the Reuters Latin American Investment Summit in Mexico City.

"What is important is to see route by route whether there is concentration," he said.

The two Mexican airlines face concerns about high fuel costs and overcapacity, similar to those of U.S. carriers like United Airlines parent UAL Corp (UAUA.O) and Continental Airlines (CAL.N), which said on Monday that they agreed to merge. The $3.17 billion deal, if approved by regulators, would form the world's largest airline.

While the United-Continental merger was not seen as an impetus for airline mergers around the world, Mexicana and AeroMexico have talked of a tie-up for years. Both airlines had previously been controlled by the Mexican government but operated separately.

Perez Motta said an airline merger is not being formally discussed at this time, despite media speculation last year that a deal was in the works as a way for the airlines to survive a decline in tourism and the difficult economic climate.

"There always was (the possibility of a deal)," Perez Motta said on Monday. "What has happened is that they have never reached a point where they complied with the specific conditions."

AeroMexico was sold to an investor group led by Citigroup's (C.N) Mexican unit Banamex in 2007, while hotel chain Grupo Posadas (POSADASL.MX) bought the controlling stake in Mexicana in 2005.

The airlines have historically had different routes, with AeroMexico focusing on Europe and Brazil while Mexicana served routes to Canada, Central America and Argentina. Overlaps have mostly occurred on routes to popular U.S. cities like New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

When AeroMexico came up for sale in 2007, Mexicana submitted a bid, but its offer was blocked by the Federal Competition Commission due to antitrust concerns.

In 2004, however, the Commission had given preliminary approval for an AeroMexico and Mexicana merger, but it never came to fruition.

AEROMEXICO RAMPS UP MSY FREQUENCY


Posted 27/05/2010

AeroMexico will increase its current 2x weekly service from the Mexican capital to New Orleans (MSY) to a 6x weekly service from Mexico City.

The increase will be effective from June 28th and currently the Skyteam member is the only operator serving the city pairs non-stop.

IATA BSP data points to the fact there is significant leakage on the route, as Star Alliance member, Continental Airlines currently carriers 46% of the existing O+D market via its Houston hub.

AeroMexico adds Miami Link



SkyTeam member AeroMexico will introduce a scheduled non-stop link from Monterrey to Miami from June 28.

AeroMexico already serves Miami from Mexico City and Merida, however there are no scheduled services between Monterrey and Miami.

IATA BSP data shows that over 22,000 passengers flew on the sector, with American Airlines capturing 47% of this traffic via its Dallas/Fort Worth hub.

Mexico: A UFO/Airliner Close Encounter?







Date: 5/27/2010

Mexico: Letter from Aviation Mechanic Alfonso Salazar

Contributing editor Prof. Ana Luisa Cid shares with us a message sent to her by aviation mechanic Alfonso Salazar, whose reports on interactions between airliners and unidentified aerial objects have become known worldwide.

"Dear Ana Luisa - My best regards to you. This photograph was taken by Fausto Abaroa on May 21st as an Aeromexico 737-800 approached Mexico City along the San Mateo air corridor. The same image shows a black flying object that dangerously escorts the passenger jet.

"It should be noted that the allowed distance between one airliner and another is one mile (1209 meters) as per SVRM Regulations for passenger aircraft navigation in Mexican airspace.

"This incident can be added to another report made known at the Toluca Airport, which describes the sighting of an object as a white arrowhead, passing over the Nevado de Toluca volcano, at an altitude of approximately 10,000 meters, and triple the speed of an executive jet. We learned of this sighting because it was reported by deck personnel.

"This event also took place on May 21 around 11:00 a.m., as a Beechcraft executive bimotor flew over the area."

AeroMexico flight from Paris to Mexico diverted to Montreal following security incident




Monday, May 31st, 2010 at 12:48 am
By Javier Mines

MONTREAL, CANADA (BNO NEWS) — An AeroMexico flight from Paris to Mexico City was diverted to the Canadian city of Montreal on Sunday following a security incident, a BNO News source confirmed.
AeroMexico flight 06, operated by a Boeing 767-300, was diverted to Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport after being denied access to U.S. airspace, a source told BNO News. One person – who may have been on the no-fly list – was taken into custody aboard the plane, the source said.


A witness on board the plane, Mexican senator Francisco Javier Castellon, said the passenger arrested was an Arab-looking man and was on seat 23H.
The plane, which departed Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport at 10.31 a.m. CEST (4.31 a.m. EDT), was carrying 150 passengers.
A spokeswoman for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police confirmed it was at the airport to assist, but refused to provide further information. Representatives from the Montreal airport, other Canadian agencies, and the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) were not immediately available to comment.
Further details were not immediately available.

Following up on this incident:



Canadian hearing scheduled for man removed from AeroMexico plane


By Mike A. Ahlers, CNN Producer
May 31, 2010 -- Updated 1751 GMT (0151 HKT)
Washington (CNN) -- Canadian authorities say they will hold a hearing Wednesday for a man who was removed from a plane Sunday at the request of U.S. authorities for an unspecified warrant.
The passenger was identified as Abdirahman Ali Gaal, according to Immigration and Refugee Board spokesman Robert Gervais.
Officials in both countries declined to identify Gaal's nationality or elaborate on why he was being sought.
Gaal was on an AeroMexico flight from Paris to Mexico City Sunday when the U.S. denied the plane permission to overfly the United States. The plane was diverted to Montreal airport, where it was met by law enforcement personnel.
A U.S. Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman said Gaal, described as a "person of interest," was arrested on an outstanding warrant. All other passengers were re-screened and the flight continued on to Mexico City.
Dominique McNeely, a spokesman for the Canada Border Services Agency, said the Immigration and Refugee Board will hold a hearing Wednesday in Montreal at 10 a.m.
IRB spokesman Gervais said Gaal was interviewed by IRB officers and is being held "due to his inadmissibility to Canada." At Wednesday's hearing, customs officials can seek to extend the Gaal's detention for either of two reasons -- because he represents a flight risk, or is a danger to the public.

AeroMexico looks at acquiring more E-190s



By Brendan Sobie


DATE:24/06/10
SOURCE:Air Transport Intelligence news
AeroMexico is looking at acquiring additional Embraer E-190s and reducing the size of its Embraer ERJ-145 fleet.
The group's AeroMexico Connect subsidiary currently operates seven E-190s and is committed to acquiring an additional nine aircraft. AeroMexico CEO Andres Conesa says the carrier's original E-190 delivery schedule has been revised and the next two aircraft, which were originally scheduled to be delivered late last year or early this year, will now be delivered in the fourth quarter. He says AeroMexico will receive the remaining seven E-190s "gradually" until mid 2012 and the carrier is now "evaluating if we can move beyond that".
He adds AeroMexico may eventually require more than the 16 E-190s originally envisioned - which include 12 E-190s ordered directly from Embraer and four that were ordered by GECAS - because of higher than anticipated demand on some its ERJ-145 routes.
"There are some routes in Mexico [where] the -145 is not enough. Some routes have behaved very well and there is probably space for a larger aircraft. The idea would be to replace some of the -145s with 190s, to grow and strengthen our positioning in the market in Mexico," Conesa said on the sidelines of a SkyTeam event in New York earlier this week.
He adds AeroMexico is looking at a possible "exchange" of ERJ-145s for E-190s but whether it ends up reducing the size of its ERJ-145 fleet will depend on how the Mexican market performs. AeroMexico Connect only added its last seven ERJ-145s last year, giving it 37 of the type. Conesa says if AeroMexico opts to reduce the size of its ERJ fleet its earliest ERJ-145s, which were added in 2003 and early 2004, would be returned.
"The first leases are due in 2012 more or less so we have flexibility to either extend those leases or replace those with a larger aircraft," Conesa says. "The window of opportunity is 2012."
Conesa says AeroMexico now primarily uses its ERJ-145s for domestic or short-haul international routes of one-and-a-half hours or less while the E-190s are used on sectors of up to three hours. AeroMexico has used its Embraer fleet to take over and increase frequencies on domestic routes that were previously operated by mainline aircraft, and to launch services in some thinner domestic markets. With the exception of a few major trunk routes AeroMexico is no longer using mainline aircraft in its domestic network.

Avianca-Taca Airliners, possibly future SkyTeam Members....

AeroMexico plans codeshare with Avianca-TACA




By Brendan Sobie


AeroMexico expects to begin codesharing with Avianca-TACA as it tries to persuade the newly merged carrier to join it in SkyTeam.

Avianca-TACA, which completed their landmark merger earlier this year, has been looking at joining Star or SkyTeam. AeroMexicoCEO Andres Conesa says he is "hopeful" Avianca-TACA will pick SkyTeam, but regardless of its global alliance decision he envisions a bilateral alliance between the two carriers.
Avianca currently codeshares with Oneworld member Mexicana, which is currently the only Mexican carrier serving Colombia. But as AeroMexico prepares to enter the Mexico City-Bogota market early next month, the carrier is also interested in codesharing with Colombia's largest carrier.

"We are working with Avianca and TACA on the new route to see if we can do something together with them," Conesa said on the sidelines of this week's SkyTeam meeting in New York.

He explains a codeshare could be added even if Avianca-TACA opts for Star. "We feel SkyTeam is a better fit for them than any other. We're pushing them forward to choose SkyTeam. Hopefully they do. But we can have a bilateral even before they make a decision," Conesa explains.
He adds: "Obviously they are analysing their alternatives and it's their decision."

SkyTeam is eager to add a second Latin American member to fill the void left by Panama's Copa, which left the alliance last October. "Obviously to be complimented by a Central or South American player would be very good and that's what we are trying to do," Conesa says.
SkyTeam chairman Leo van Wijk says Latin America is priority along with Asia in the alliance's new recruitment drive. Speaking to reporters at this week's meeting in New York, van Wijk said Latin America is a region in which multiple members are required because the region's traffic is spread out across several hubs.

van Wijk declines to disclose which Latin American carriers SkyTeam is currently talking to but both Avianca-TACA and Aerolineas Argentinas have confirmed they are talking to both SkyTeam and Star. Brazil's Gol, which currently has a codeshare with AeroMexico, is also being wooed by SkyTeam and Oneworld but has indicated they prefer for now to remain non-aligned.

No More Direct International Flights from New Orleans




Last Update: 9:02 pm


AeroMexico flights begin at Armstrong International Airport. (Kia Callia)
The only direct international flight from New Orleans is no more.
Our partners at The Lens are reporting that AeroMexico suspended its nonstop flight to Mexico City three weeks ago.
