U.S.–Mexico Flight Restrictions Removed
A revised air transport agreement between the U.S. and Mexico went into effect,removing most restrictions on flights between the two nations and opening each nation’s air travel market to the other. The lifting of restrictions should bring more flight options between the two nations. Many industry experts also think prices could drop as more airlines compete on popular routes; others, however, note that airfares themselves are low but each country imposes taxes that raise the final flying price.
American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Southwest Airlines have already announced plans to offer new flights between Mexico and the U.S. Because Mexico City’s Benito Juárez International Airport will maintain its limits on takeoffs and landings, you can expect most of the new routes to focus on other Mexican cities.
The rules had, for the most part, limited each route to only two or three carriers from each nation.
