Aeromexico expands its fleet with 12 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft
Mexican carrier Aeromexico plans to add 12 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to its fleet, with the Aryan company trying to replace old aircraft and improve connectivity. The 12 Boeing 737 MAXs will be added to the 28 MAXs the airline has already ordered in April 2021, bringing a total of 40 new aircraft to its fleet. The first aircraft will be received in October 2021.
"Aeromexico continues its strategy of having the safest, state-of-the-art, efficient and least polluting fleet", said Nicolas Ferri, Commercial Director of Aeromexico, on July 20, 2021. "The new aircraft will allow us to continue to improve connectivity in our main hubs to meet the demand of our customers with the best aircraft and services and with fares that meet the needs of travel."
Aeromexico has signed a letter of intent with the Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) lessor to receive another 12 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. The agreement for adding 12 737 MAX is "Subject to the approval of the United States Court for the Southern District of New York, responsible for the process of voluntary financial restructuring of Chapter 11 of Aeromexico."
Aeromexico currently has a total of 118 aircraft in its fleet, according to Aeromexico data: 53 x Boeing 737 MAX, 47 x Embraer 190 and 18 x Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
FAA has authorized the return of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to operational service, on November 18, 2020. Thus, Aeromexico was the second airline in the world to return the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to operational service on December 21, 2020.
