The Department of State issued an alert to U.S. citizens planning on traveling to Mexico that Mexicana Airlines has suspended all flight operations until further notice. The flights were offically suspended on Saturday, the same day the alert was issued.
According to the travel alert, the suspension applies to all Mexicana-affiliated flights including Mexicana, MexicanaLink, and MexicanaClick flights.
In a press release on the company’s website, the airline pledged to assist passengers to the best of its abilities. Passengers who have already flown a leg of their journey are advised to consult the company’s website for further information. The company notes that priority assistance will be provided to “minors traveling unaccompanied, passengers traveling with children under the age of three, and special needs passengers.” Individuals who have not yet begun their journey on one of the Mexicana airlines are recommended to make alternative travel arrangements.
According to the alert, which expires on September 10, “The Department of State advises all travelers with reservations on Mexicana, MexicanaLink or MexicanaClick to consult the company’s website for additional guidance and contact information for the airline. Passengers who may become stranded in the middle of their journey and who require assistance beyond that provided by the airline should contact their nearest Embassy or Consulate."
