Flight from Mex City to Zihuatanejo

by Ottawa Joe, Saturday, August 17, 2019, 14:26 (65 days ago)

We will be spending New Years Eve in Mexico city and two more nights then flying on to Z on Jan 3rd. I notice there are 4 different airlines listed with 5 flights the prices are $66 CAD to $89 CAD each. Interjet and Volaris have the best timing for check in, any preference?

As a side note they are all non stop flights however the listings show a difference of 55 minutes to 1 hr 25 min. :ponder:

I have flown both with similar results. However, Interjet has been having financial troubles lately and so Volaris seems like a better bet for stability of long term service.

Should be more than 4 different? Aeromar, and of course Aeromex. Also there is a flight coming from an outskirts airport of Mex City.

Hi,
Difference in flight time has to do with aircraft used. Aeromar uses small planes (if you understand airplanes, they have two ATR 42, and seven ATR 72-600). Aeromexico sometimes overstates/pads their flight time in order to qualify as an 'on-time' airline.

Please note Interjet and Volaris fly out of terminal 1, and Aeromar and AeroMexico out of terminal two. There is an airtrain that is quite efficient, but it is outside security so plan for making time for that.

Best,
BL

Thanks for the tips. We always wanted to see Mexico city if only for a few days and as we can use our points on Air Canada we are booking a return out of there. After Z we will head for Oaxaca and then cycle back through Mexico to fly home.

If you're looking for a place to stay in Oaxaca, try Casa Colonial. Charming, secure and close to downtown.

when I connect in CDMX, I fly Aeromar. Never a problem.
