Mexicana de Aviación has launched a website to provide details about its routes and upcoming promotions that are scheduled to begin in December. 

In a budget set to attract passengers, Mexicana de Aviación plans to start operations with fares that are 18% to 20% lower compared to other competing airlines. Ticket sales are expected to begin in the coming days.

The primary hub for Mexicana de Aviación will be the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA), from where it will offer flights to multiple destinations including Acapulco, Campeche, Cancun, Chetumal, Ciudad Juarez, Cozumel, Guadalajara, Hermosillo, Huatulco, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, La Paz, Los Cabos, Mazatlan, Merida, Monterrey, Oaxaca, Puerto Vallarta, Tijuana and Villahermosa.

The airline's fleet will comprise 10 Boeing 737-800 aircraft, each with a capacity for 180 passengers. Three of these planes are set to arrive this month, with the remainder scheduled for October.

The 2024 Federal Budget Proposal, prepared by the Ministry of Finance, allocates MX$119.6 million (US$679,148) to Mexicana de Aviación for personnel services. Additionally, it is estimated that the airline will generate revenues of  MX$8,340 million (US$473,903)  during its inaugural year of operations.

The revival of this Mexican airline was made possible through an agreement by the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador with the 7,407 former employees of the original company. They relinquished the rights to the brand in exchange for MX$815 million (US$46.2 million) for the new state-owned airline.
