AM History & Fleet

 Aeromexico's history began i1934, with the founding of Aeronaves de México. By the fifties, the carrier had opened offices in 21 cities in Mexico and two in the United States. In 1988, the company was incorporated as Aerovías de Mexico, S.A. de C.V., keeping the airline’s business name and Eagle Knight Insignia. The airline had 25 aircraft and around 3,500 employees.
