MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s largest airline Aeromexico canceled dozens of flights on Tuesday Nov. 28 due to a strike by some pilots with Connect, its regional operator, in the saturated Mexico City airport.
The company said in a statement that the group of pilots did not report for work to protest the dismissal of a colleague with a history of poor performance.
“Aeromexico is working at maximum capacity to normalize operations as quickly as possible and is sorry for the inconvenience to clients,” the company added.
A representative for the pilot’s union did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
As a result of the protest, the company reported on its Twitter account at least 32 canceled flights on Tuesday from Mexico City, primarily to domestic destinations. Various flights were also delayed due to fog in the area.
New regulations to protect travelers and compensate them for cancellations and delays have gone into effect in Mexico this year.
The strike, which lasted approximately six hours, also caused travelers to miss connecting flights. One early morning flight from Mexico City to Cancun was affected by the strike, however, all flights have reportedly been restored normally.
In Mérida, Flights 420 and 421, connecting Mexico City and Miami, were canceled, but were expected to resume Wednesday Nov. 29.
Aeromexico operates more than 600 flights per day, and its hub is in Mexico City. The company serves more than 90 cities in Mexico, the United States, Latin America, Canada, Europe and Asia.
