Discount Airlines Grounded in Mexico

Those of you considering flying on Mexico’s new batch of cut-rate airlines should read this
news item from USA Today. Several of the discount airlines have been “grounded” for safety violations or non-payment of fees. A second article in USA Today lists the airlines that have been grounded and some of the safety infractions involved in their grounding. It also includes a list of Mexico’s discount airlines that are still flying.

We feel obliged to note that several of the grounded airlines believe the actions against them are motivated by political considerations within Mexico’s federal government.

For the meantime, if you need to fly within Mexico and decide that you want to travel a “home-country” airline, Mexicana and Aeromexico, two of the country’s major airlines, are still flying and might be good choices for your transportation.
