Lopez Obrador announces the creation of a new government-owned Mexican airline


CDMX (Monday, July 26, 2021).- President Andres Manuel López Obrador announced during his daily “mañanera” press conference that the Government of Mexico is preparing to launch a new airline with former employees of Mexicana de Aviación –extinct in 2010– and in collaboration with businessmen, through a mixed scheme.

The proposal was presented last Friday in the Revolution Room, in a meeting with officials of the Ministry of the Interior (Segob), pilots, and businessmen, where Jorge Ordóñez, head of the Office of said agency, was present.

In audio recorded at today’s press conference, it is detailed that a Segob official proposes to reactivate the extinct airline, which most likely cannot be called Mexicana due to multiple legal factors, so it will have a different name.

In addition, at the meeting in which 30 employees were present, Salvador Álvarez was presented as a representative of a business group, which would create a society with a group of free workers, with the principle of a cooperative association.
