On Saturday, August 9th. PROFECO suspended  three major airlines ticket sale Nation wide due to communication irregularities.

The Federal Attorney of the Consumers Defense (PROFECO) suspended ticket sale for Magnicharters, VivaAerobus and United Airlines because they do not have ticket prices on display.

The Airlines will not be allowed to sell tickets for 15 days and must make this information public, or else they will have to pay a multi million peso penalization fee.

The delegate of the Federal Agency,  José Antonio Nevárez Cervera, stated that in a national operative last Thurday Aeroméxico, Interjet and VivaAerobus were also suspended.

This is part of a Federal investigation, in which article 7 and 57 of the Mexican Constitution state that prices and exchange displayed to the public, rules that were not being followed by these Airlines.

Although they have been suspended from selling tickets, this is only valid inside the Airport, meaning ticket purchase is still available online or at travel agencies.

    I really doubt this is true. It would be impossible to have millions of possible fare combinations on display. From what I understand, it is due to the fact they don’t have the extras, such as baggage fees, on display.
