AeroMexico to launch new budget airline service

September 9, 2013

In a bid to compete with budget airliners Volaris and Interjet, AeroMexico will launch a new low-cost service dubbed “AeroMexico Contigo” out of Guadalajara Airport from October 1. 

The service is aimed primarily at passengers flying from Mexico to the United States and Canada, with 14 weekly flights to Los Angeles, six to Ontario, four to Chicago and three each to Fresno and Sacramento. Domestically, AeroMexico will introduce an additional 28 weekly flights from Guadalajara to Tijuana and 14 to Culiacan, Sinaloa as part of its new service.

“The use of the Boeing 737-800 airliner for the Aeromexico Contigo program optimizes operating costs, which then translates into lower pricing. Other benefits include increased legroom, personalized attention by Aeromexico Call Center agents and at participating airport check-in counters,” the airliner states on its website.

The AeroMexico website lists flights from Guadalajara to Los Angeles from 168 dollars throughout October and November, with fares for flights in the opposite direction beginning at 109 dollars.

As with its regular service, AeroMexico will allow passengers traveling to the United States to check in 25 kilos (but only 23 kilos when making the return journey to Mexico) of luggage and a 10-kilo carry-on for free.

Meanwhile, Volaris has begun running direct flights twice a week from Guadalajara to three new destinations: Mazatlan, Sinaloa; Merida, Yucatan and Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas. Volaris has also applied to the U.S. Department of Transportation for permission to run direct flights from Denver, Colorado to Guadalajara and the city of Chihuahua.
