Mexicana Airlines (Nuevo Grupo Aeronautico, S.A. de C.V.) has announced that, effective at noon, Saturday, August 28, 2010, Mexicana Airlines will suspend all flight operations until further notice. The suspension applies to all Mexicana, MexicanaLink, and MexicanaClick flights. All flights scheduled to depart after this time will be cancelled indefinitely.
In a press release on the company's website, www.mexicana.com, 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 age 3, 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.
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.
