Aeromexico has launched a new package of branded fare
offerings, including a basic economy option.
Meanwhile, joint venture partner Delta said it now offers basic
economy on more than half of its flights to Mexico, including several new
Mexico City and Guadalajara flights.
Aeromexico's new product offerings apply to domestic routes
as well as the Mexican carrier's flights to the U.S. and Canada.
Fare options graduate upward from Basic at the low end to
Aeromexico's lie-flat product, Premier, at the high end. In between, Aeromexico
is offering four progressively more service-oriented fare bundles that give passengers
the option to choose items such as advanced seat assignments, extra legroom,
travel date flexibility and priority boarding.
Aeromexico's new Basic product mimics Delta's Basic Economy.
Fares are the lowest offered by the airline but fliers don't get a seat
assignment prior to check-in and tickets are nonrefundable and cannot be
changed. One carry-on bag is allowed.
Delta and Aeromexico entered into an antitrust-immune joint
venture last May. Under the arrangement, the carriers are allowed to jointly
schedule, market and operate flights between the U.S and Mexico.
Along with Mexico City and Guadalajara, Delta sells basic economy
fares to Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Cozumel.
