Aeromexico named among world’s safest airlines
Despite some high-profile crashes in the 1980’s, Aeromexico is now regarded as one of the World’s safest airlines.
The airline, which was established as Aeronaves de México in 1934, changed their name to Aeromexico in 1988.
Since 1988, Aeromexico has been a world leader in on-time performance and operational reliability. It’s also one of the four founding members of the SkyTeam alliance.
The other founding members are Air France, Delta Air Lines, and Korean Air.
Aeromexico currently operates domestic flights in Mexico and international flights to Central and South America, the U.S., the Caribbean, Canada, Europe, and Asia.
Is Aeromexico safe?
Aeromexico works closely with U.S. based Delta Air Lines, which also owns part of Aeromexico. It’s safety standards are now among the best in the industry.
The website AirlineRatings.com gives Aeromexico the maximum seven stars, placing it alongside the likes of Emirates, Qantas, and Cathay Pacific.
The rating system takes into account a range of factors related to audits from aviation’s governing bodies and lead associations as well as government audits.
The airline must also have a fatality free record for the past 10 years.
Unlike a number of other airlines, Aeromexico passed those tests with flying colors.
