A new regional airline subsidiary of Mexicana Airlines will start service from Guadalajara on March 15 with used Bombardier CRJ200s, the company announced last month.
ALMA de México
Bombardier continued its deliberate penetration of South and Central America last month with an order from Mexico’s AeroLineas MesoAmericanas (ALMA) for a pair of CRJ900s. Based in Guadalajara, ALMA began operations in June last year and already flies 15 fifty-seat CRJ200s to 25 Mexican destinations. The order came on the heels of a separate deal to deliver four Q400 turboprops to Arik Air of Nigeria.
