Business as usual for Mexicana
Thursday 5, August 2010
Mexicana's position in the oneworld alliance is unaffected by the announcement today that the airline has filed for insolvency proceedings in Mexico and bankruptcy protection in the USA to enable it to restructure into line with market conditions.
Mexicana has stressed that it will continue to operate normally, in line with Mexican legislation covering such restructurings. Its schedule is being maintained - though with some network and frequency changes - and it continues to take bookings and offer its full range of services.
So the airline continues to offer full oneworld services and benefits, and tickets for flights on Mexicana and its frequent flyer arrangements are unaffected.
Its affiliates MexicanaClick and MexicanaLink, which are also part of oneworld, operate independently of Mexicana itself and are not affected by the mainline airline's reorganisation process.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
