Air transportation is a good way to save time in such a large country even if it is the most expensive way to travel.
For a while only two airline companies, AEROMEXICO and MEXICANA shared the market but since the deregulation in 1988, there are many other ones. In aug 2010, Mexicana has ceased its operations.

Low Cost airlines took advantage of that bankrupcty. They got the right to operate from Mexico City. Their prices are very competitive and they are very safe airlines (Interjet, Volaris and VivaAreobus).

Scheduled airlines :

Aérolitoral - domestic flights and some flights to U.S.A

Aeromexico introduces the E-Jet in Mexico and converts Aérolitoral to Connect (Aeromexico Connect). The first Embraer 190 of Aeromexico was delivered on November 23, 2007. Destined to its regional branch, Aeromexico Connect, previously named Aérolitoral, is the first of four aircrafts that will integrate the fleet of the Mexican company. They will be equipped with a dual class configuration of 99 seats, with eleven in business class and will allow Aeromexico Connect to renew its fleet and extend its services. With the delivery of this ERJ 190, Aeromexico Connect becomes the first Mexican company to operate an ERJ 170/190 craft. But it already owns crafts from the Brazilian manufacturer since it already operates twenty seven ERJ 145. The regional company offers flights on less traveled routes in Mexico and to the neighboring countries. Its headquarter is located at the International airport of Monterrey.
