Mexico’s national airline, Mexicana, will take flight again this year after suspending all flights five months ago in 2010 due to increasing travel fees. Tickets for Mexicana flights will go on sale January 24, 2011 but no specific date has been chosen to return to regular service. The airline is expected to return with popular domestic routes and flights to the USA and Canada to start, adding international and long-haul routes later.
Mexicana, one of the world’s oldest airlines, used to transport 22,000 passengers on 220 flights a day before cancelling all their services on August 28th, 2010. The airline blamed its closure to the increasing costs to fly, including wages for their crew. The airline was granted bankruptcy protection shortly after.
