Mexico aviation sector

Mexico has a relatively large and active airline industry, with several major airlines operating in the country. In addition to Aeromexico, other major airlines based in Mexico include Volaris, Interjet, and VivaAerobus.

These airlines offer a range of domestic and international flights to destinations throughout Mexico, the Americas, and beyond.

Mexico is a popular destination for both leisure and business travel, which has helped to support the growth of its airline industry.

In recent years, there has been increasing competition among airlines in the Mexican market, which has led to lower fares and greater choice for consumers.
