Mexicana stops selling tickets as it negotiates a settlement with its unions

Mexicana (Compañía Mexicana de Aviación-CMA) (Mexico City) announced that as of 6:00 p.m. (1800) central time yesterday (August 4) all ticket sales will be suspended and that no tickets will be issued until further notice.

The decision affects only Compañía Mexicana de Aviación ticket sales. MexicanaClick and MexicanaLink are independent carriers and will therefore continue to sell and operate domestic flights as normal.

Per the company, Compañía Mexicana de Aviación will continue to operate its international flights in the interests of:

Protecting passengers who have already purchased flights.

Ongoing union negotiations in the hope of a positive outcome.
