Mexican Airlines - Fly From Vancouver, BC Canada

Mexican Airlines Flying From Vancouver

Prior to August 2010, both of the major Mexican airlines with international flights, flew from Vancouver International Airport - YVR. Vancouver is Western Canada's busiest airport and it is the main Western Canadian departure point for flights to Mexico. With 71 direct flights to Mexico, you will find the competition is good at YVR and there are good discount flights to many destinations in Mexico. With Mexicana ceasing operations in August 2010, the only Mexican Airline with flights to and from Vancouver YVR is Aeromexico, through code sharing with other airlines.

Some of the best deals on flights to Mexico from Vancouver are to Cancun, Cozumel, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. From Canada, there are 16 airlines with flights to Mexico.

About Mexicana Airlines

Mexicana was Mexico's oldest airline until ceasing operations in August 2010. Mexicana was founded in 1921. In 2009, Mexicana had a fleet of over 100 aircraft and passenger volume over 11 million.

A plan is in place to restructure Mexicana and begin flying again. The airline would be much smaller, the current plan would see Mexicana flying 7 aircraft. A far cry from where they were just a few short years ago.
