Aeromexico is the latest carrier to return its 737 MAX fleet to the schedule. The carrier intends to operate 4 flights with the type on 21 December and grow the operations from there.
Based on the flight timings it appears a single 737 MAX will return to service for Aeromexico next week. The plane will fly from Mexico City to Cancun (AM 512) and back (AM 531) then return to Cancun (AM 546) before heading to Tijuana for the night (AM 196).
The aircraft will continue on to Mexico City on the morning of the 22nd (AM 173) then fly to Cancun (AM 528), back to Mexico City (AM 547), and back to Tijuana (AM 194).
From the 24th the carrier should have multiple planes in service based on increased usage of the type on the MEX-CUN route.
By the 27th Aeromexico is expected to add the Mexico City-Monterrey route on the MAX.
Passengers on the Aeromexico 737 MAX flights will have access to in-seat entertainment screens as well as in-flight wifi powered by the Viasat Ka-band satellite network.
The MAX ended its grounding last month when the Federal Aviation Administration approved its return to flight, with implementation of changes to the MCAS system, pilot training and other factors.
GOL was the first carrier to return the type to the skies, operating within Brazil last week. Aeromexico will be second, assuming this schedule holds. American Airlines will be third, and the first in the USA, when it resumes the type’s service on 29 December from Miami to LaGuardia.
