Flagship domestic carrier Aeroméxico will ramp up flights to various international destinations in November, as well as resume several routes from Mexico, including Costa Rica and Peru.
An Aeroméxico press release said the airline will be operating at 83 percent capacity compared with November 2019. In June, Aeromexico filed for voluntary restructuring under chapter 11 of the U.S. bankruptcy code to confront the crisis brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. Last month, Apollo Global Management Inc. won court approval to provide a US$1 billion bankruptcy loan that will allow Aeromexico to proceed with its restructuring plans.
During the pandemic, Aeromexico has undertaken more than 230 cargo charter flights in passenger planes, transporting 3,600 tons of essential medical supplies to Mexico and 15 other countries.
