Mexican Airline to End Flights to Baltimore

Mexican Mexicana de Aviacion will stop flights to local city of Colima and Baltimore, in the United States, as from May 1st, because these destinations are not profitable.

The firm is also evaluating the closure of destinations and services because of the higher competition in Mexico. Mexicana considers its operations are the country's most expensive to maintain.

It serves about 50 destinations in North America, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean. It has a fleet of 6.3 years in average and a 28% market share.

The company owns the low-cost airline Click Mexicana, which operates 23 domestic routs with 12 Fokker 100 aircrafts. Mexicana de Aviacion belongs to Mexican hotel chain operator Grupo Posadas. © 2007 NoticiasFinancieras - NoticiasFinancieras - All rights reserved
