December 2006: Mexico's airline industry is facing a significant overcapacity situation following the emergence of several new entrants, Aeromexico (AMX) (CEO) Andres Conesa said at the (ALTA) Latin American Airline Leaders Forum. According to Conesa, Mexico currently has an average of eight airlines competing on city-pairs of more than 1 million annual passengers compared to four in the USA. Furthermore, the top 10 busiest domestic routes have 1.8 times the number of seats required to meet demand versus 1.2 in the USA.
Aeromexico (AMX) and its regional affiliate Aerolitoral are part of Consorcio Aeromexico, the renamed Cintra, following Cintra's sale of Mexicana (CMA) last year to Grupo Posadas. Mexican new entrants, all Low Cost Carrier (LCC)s, include Volaris (VLS) and InterJet (AAE) based at Toluca Airport outside Mexico City, Alma in Guadalajara, Avolar (AVL) in Tijuana and Viva Aerobus (VVS) in Monterrey. Additionally, Mexicana (CMA) subsidiary Click (AEB), the former Aerocaribe, operates as an (LCC). Conesa said he expects a shakeout, with only a few new entrants surviving. "It's hard to think they can all remain," he said.
