Last week in Mexico’s aviation & aerospace industry
Commercial airlines have experienced a good week. After solving a 51-day-long strike, Avianca is back on track and Southwest Air plans to open more routes between the US and Mexico. Some airports have seen challenges to their expansion, but in general airports have experienced a solid growth in passenger and cargo transportation. As airlines continue updating or growing their fleets, this week was relatively positive for the domestic and global aerospace industries. Boeing started producing the 777x and delivered China’s first 737 Max 8.
