Private jet market in Mexico

How to charter the best aircraft

Mexico is the fourth largest business aviation market in the world and the third major in Latin America in terms of the number of aircraft available for charter. The great versatility of its fleet in operation stands out, from light jets to twin-engine helicopters, and even long-range commercial jets.

Likewise, it is interesting to talk about the demand for executive aviation in Mexico, quite balanced between business – mainly driven by one of the largest cities in the world in Mexico City, and Monterrey, the second most important financial center in the country – and the demand generated by leisure, led by Cancun, the famous world-class tourist center in the far east of Mexico. In fact, Cancun has the fourth busiest airport in all of Latin America.

Next, we share the details of the main routes, airports, and executive aircraft available for charter in Mexico.

Executive Airports in Mexico

Mexico is the third country in the world with the most airstrips, 1,714 in total, although only 243 of them are paved. This propels executive aviation to a position of great potential, considering that there are aircraft, especially turboprops, that can operate on remote dirt or grass runways.

Similarly, the local Federal Civil Aviation Agency (AFAC) officially recognizes 76 commercial airports in the country, without considering another 40 non-commercial runways. All of them, again, are accessible via private aviation.

As for the main airports, it is not surprising that Mexico City is in first place. It is also the airport with the highest passenger traffic in all of Latin America, while Cancun, boosted by international leisure travel, is in second place. Guadalajara, Monterrey, and Toluca, the most renowned executive aviation terminal in the country, complete the list of the top terminals.

The most popular private jet routes in Mexico

The following list offers the most popular chartered routes, as well as recommendations on which executive planes are suitable for each flight.

Mexico City – Cancun

The main tourist route in Mexico connects the great capital with the extreme east of the country, two points separated by a flight distance of roughly 800 miles. A comfortable aircraft with enough range to cover this route is the Learjet 40, with a capacity for 7 passengers.

Mexico City – Guadalajara

Driven by business, the route between Mexico City and the also known “Pearl of the West” (Guadalajara) lasts just over an hour, therefore a light jet could be a good option, such as the Phenom 300 for 8 passengers.

Mexico City – Miami

A connection driven by both business and leisure, the trip from the Mexican capital to South Florida has always been a popular route, which can be covered in just under three hours aboard a midsized jet like the Citation XLS for 8 passengers, with a particularly comfortable and quiet cabin.

Mexico City – Sao Paulo

The route between the two main urban centers in Latin America is on the rise hand in hand with the increase in economic activity amongst both nations. For a long trip of roughly 10 hours, it is advisable to charter a heavy jet such as the Falcon 900EX for its comfort and speed.

Mexico City – Monterrey

The connection between the main financial hubs of Mexico is also on the rise, with Monterrey positioned as the top economic pole in the north of the country. In just over an hour, a very light jet like the Embraer 100 can connect both business centers.

Although these are the top five routes today, there are other destinations, such as Toluca or Tijuana, that also generate significant domestic demand. Whether for a local or international trip, Mexico stands out for having an important variety of executive aircraft models, which allows for great levels of customization and availability.
