Restructuring


Aeromexico is currently under the voluntary financial restructuring process under US Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. In the statement, the airline announces that it “will use the advantages of Chapter 11 to strengthen its financial position and liquidity, protect and preserve its operations and assets, and implement the necessary adjustments to face the impact of COVID-19.”

Part of this restructuring will see the airline increase its focus at Mexico City’s second airport, Felipe Angeles International Airport (NLU), from August 2022. New routes will be added to Acapulco (ACA), Cancun (CUN), Guadalajara (GDL), Monterrey (MTY), and Oaxaca (OAX).
