Aeroméxico, Mexico’s flag carrier airline, has launched a private jet division that will cater to passengers in Mexico and the U.S. It has partnered with Mexican private jet operator Aerolíneas Ejecutivas for flights south of the border, while Delta Executive Jets will handle the U.S. legs for Mexican users. This further leverages the existing relationship between Aeroméxico and Delta Air Lines, which launched the first transborder airline alliance with antitrust immunity between Mexico and the U.S. in 2017.
According to an Aerolíneas Ejecutivas spokesperson, the Aeroméxico Jet Card program requires an approximate $125,000 base purchase, to be used on the company’s fleet of Hawker 400XPs, Learjet 75s, and Challenger 604s at different tier pricing depending on aircraft class. Jet card users will also be eligible for upgrades on Aeroméxico.
Aeroméxico customers who wish to fly privately can use Aerolíneas Ejecutivas to fly within Mexico and to the U.S., Canada, and Latin and South America. Those wishing to fly between destinations in the U.S. will use Delta Private Jets aircraft and crews to avoid cabotage issues. Helicopter service within Mexico is also available to cardholders. The service debuted last week in Mexico, which is home to the world’s second-largest fleet of private jets.
