Between April and May, a small cargo service known as Aerounión grew to become essentially the most important worldwide airline in Mexico. The Mexican Authorities not too long ago printed its newest knowledge on the variety of month-to-month operations, each domestically and internationally, and the outcomes are extraordinary. Let’s examine additional.Aerounión is a small cargo airline in Mexico. Picture: Daniel Martínez Garbuno/Easy FlyingWhere did Aerounión come from?Aerounión is a Mexican cargo service based in 1998. It began its operations in 2001 and has the Mexico Metropolis Worldwide Airport as its important hub.As of July 2020, Aerounión has a fleet of 5 Airbus A300 B4F-203 plane. These airplanes can transport as much as 97,000 kilos or 44 tons of cargo. They’ve a variety of two,600 nautical miles or 4,800 kilometers. Aerounión says its fleet is “an ideal combination of versatility and economy in cargo transportation for clients and operators.” It primarily flies to Los Angeles, San Jose (California), Chicago, and Miami within the US.However, Aerounión has by no means been an enormous operator worldwide. For instance, in January, the service operated 56 home cargo flights and 235 worldwide cargo flights. The coronavirus pandemic struck in Mexico over the last week of March. In April, Aerounion operated 55 home flights and 209 worldwide flights, whereas in May, the quantity was 54 and 241, respectively. Nothing modified for the operator.Aeromexico has additionally launched cargo flights. Picture: Aeromexico.So, how did it develop into the main worldwide airline in Mexico?The business carriers in Mexico, like Aeromexico and Volaris, needed to cease flying internationally. Demand fell, and borders closed. Abruptly, the worldwide visitors coming out and in of Mexico disappeared.Whereas Aeromexico launched constitution cargo flights that not too long ago surpassed the 200 spherical journeys between Mexico and China, Aerounión did nothing out of the extraordinary. This was a case when an airline didn’t do something new; it simply noticed how everybody round stopped flying.What in regards to the conventional Mexican carriers, like Aeromexico?The business passenger airways have suffered a 90% lower in its visitors numbers. As an example, in May, neither Interjet nor Viva Aerobus flew internationally, whereas Volaris operated 98 worldwide flights and Aeromexico 112. In January, these 4 carriers had 10,677 mixed scheduled worldwide providers.In April, Aeromexico as a complete (that’s Aeromexico and its department Aeromexico Join) did function extra transborder flights than Aerounión, with 262. Separated (because the Mexican Authorities registers them), that they had 206 and 56 worldwide flights. In the meantime, Interjet didn’t fly internationally, Viva Aerobus registered 4 scheduled worldwide providers and Volaris 245.When the Mexican Authorities publishes its statistics for June and July, we are able to assume that Volaris will once more surpass Aerounión. It has restarted a number of flights to key cities within the US.Aerounión flies primarily to the USA.

Mesa Airways, which offers regional air providers for American Airways, flew 631 between each nations. Lastly, Envoy Air operated 789 providers.We don’t anticipate that Aerounión will repeat ever once more as the first worldwide operator in Mexico. What do you consider Aerounión’s feat?
