Save this for later

Mexican low-fare carrier, Alma de Mexico has ceased operations and filed for bankruptcy.

The company which flew regional routes from its base at Guadalajara put a notice up on its website on November 7 citing the global economic crisis, the increase in fuel prices and the devaluation of the Mexican peso.

The company had 12 Bombardier CRJ200 in service and was the first airline in Mexico to operate commercial Bombardier aircraft. The company also had two CRJ-900 NextGens on order from the manufacturer. It had hoped to grow to a fleet of 35 aircraft by 2010.
