Huge battle for Mexico at the moment, main airline went under about 2 months ago leaving the entire market open.

Currently there are 10 similarly sized airlines all fighting for the market. The main aircraft of choice has been the A319/20 family. We have 8 airlines soley based out Mexico City, 1 airline out of both Guadalajara and Mexico city and the other out of Cancun. Its going to be very interesting to see who survives, who fights till the end and who becomes victorious. The 10 airlines are with some info are:

Kingler Air Mexico: 
-  Base: Mexico City
 - Fleet: 16 x A320s 1 x A319 1 x 737-600 Total: 18
-  Fully based out of Mexico City airport, they are using full service and best seats serving the most destinations of any airline so far and are just the market leader in front of AirMex and they are expanding quickly.

AirMex
- Bases: Guadalajara, Mexico City
- Fleet: 1 x A321 13 x A320s 1 x A319 1 x A300B4 1 x A340-300 Total: 17

-  AirMex has two main hubs, one out of Guadalajara and the other is out of Mexico City. They also serve direct routes from Cancun as well. They have an interesting fleet with a couple of widebodies thrown in there and are doing very well. 

Dahlia Airlines
- Bases: Mexico City
- Fleet: 7 x A319s 4 x A320s Total 11 
- 2nd biggest airline out of the capital, Dahlia is offering top service and best seats available to domestic destinations. They also serve a few direct routes out of Cancun showing interest outside of capital. 

Aztec Airlines
- Bases: Mexico City
- Fleet: 10 x Fokker 100s  Total 10

- Quickly expanding with a fleet of Fokker 100s, Aztec airlines offers the 2nd most destinations in the country so far and is the 4th biggest airline in terms of weekly departures out of Mexico city. 

flyXL

- Bases : Mexico City

- Fleet: 8 x A320s Total: 8
- One of the newer airlines, setting up with a fleet of 2nd hand A320s and competing directly on the biggest domestic routes. 

Sun Air Mexico

- Bases: Mexico City
- Fleet 7 x A319 Total: 7

- Another new airline joined in the fun and based themselves out of Mexico City. They have focused on the biggest demand routes like Cancun and Monterey rather than the number of destinations. 

 

SombreroAIR
- Bases: Mexico City

- Fleet 2 x A321 2 x TU-204 Total: 4

- Airline with an interesting choice of aircraft, the TU204 operating a hub operation out of Mexico City like the others. They have the best seats and service available for the aircraft and routes they operate.

Cancun Connect

- Bases: Cancun

- Fleet 3 x CS300 1 x A319 Total: 4

- The only airline not operating a hub operation out of Mexico city, they have found a Niche so far, operating routes where they have a monopoly. Surely its a matter of time before the top 3 airlines base a couple of planes out of Cancun and compete with them. Time will tell how Cancun connect play this one out. 

Mexico Vuela

- Bases: Mexico City
- Fleet: 3 x 737-800s
- A small airline, operating a shuttle type service between Cancun, Mexico City, Monterry and Guadalajara. 

There is also a inactive airline with 4 717s that havent set up routes yet called Aerolineas de Mexico. No information them yet other than they are bases in Mexico City as well. 

 

2 Airlines leading the pack, AirMex and Kingler Air Mexico with 17 and 18 planes respectfully. Dahlia Airlines just in behind. Its a little bit of a bloodbath at the moment.

AirMex is running away at the top, just got 2 more A320s. At some point the capacity will over come the demand and then it will get interesting.

*****Update July*****

As of July, there are 9 airlines with 5 major players with some very interesting developments including several of them teaming up. 2 of the original airlines decided to opt out of the market, flyXL and Aztec Airlines and we gained MexAir Xpress. 

The airlines in question (In order of pax Carried last week): 

AirMex

Bases - Guadalajara, Mexico City 
Focus Cities - Cancun

Fleet - 6 A319s, 18 A320s, 4 A321s, 1 A340, 3 EMB190LR Total: 32
Pax carried last week - 148,528
Destinations: 37
AirMex expanded massively this month, with nearly 20 planes, operating to 37 destinations across Mexico, US and Spain.

Kingler Air Mexico

Bases - Mexico City
Fleet - 4 A319s, 23 A320s, 3 737s, 5 EMB195 Total: 35
Pax carried last week - 131,230
Destinations - 49
Kingler now is the largest carrier in terms of fleet and the 2nd largest in terms of pax carried.

Dahlia Airlines
Bases - Mexico City
Focus Cities -Guadalajara

Fleet - 8 A319s, 4 A320s, 1 A321, 2 737-700s, 4 737-800s, 1 EMB175, 1 EMB190, 1 EMB195 Total: 22

Pax Carried last week - 68,136
Destinations - 30
Dahlia airlines continued it steady growth doubling their fleet size. They added a fleet of 737s to their operation as well as Embraer regional jets. 

GoPacific

Bases - Mexico City
Fleet - 22 Dash 8s, 1 737-500, 2 737-700s, 9 ATR72 Total: 34
Pax carried last week: 52,280
Destinations - 42
Mexico's main regional airline and Mexico Cities biggest airline in terms of movements, GoPacific set up noticing a massive lack of air service to a lot of airports across the country, opening niche routes as well as competing with the main trunk routes in the market. 

Sun Air Mexico

Bases - Mexico City
Fleet - 11 A319, 1 A320,  2 ATR72s Total 14
Pax carried last week: 52,101
Destinations - 20
Sun Air Mexico doubled its fleet as well, its network focuses on Mexicos busiest markets and serves its passengers with the highest quality of service in the process. 

Mexico Vuela

Bases - Mexico City
Fleet 3 x 737-800 Total: 3
Pax Carried last week - 24,596
Destinations - 4 
No real change, they seem happy where they are at. 

SombreroAir

Bases - Mexico City
Fleet - 2 TU204s, 1 A320, 2 A321s Total 5
Pax Carried last week - 19,945
Destinations - 12
Slow expansion, no real change. Time will tell if they expand or not! 

Cancun Connect

Bases - Cancun
Fleet - 1 A319, 2 CS300s, 3 EMB170s Total: 6
Pax Carried last week - 19371

Slow expansion, still the only dedicated airline at Cancun and filling their aircraft well.
