Tips for Flying to Mexico

Cabotage rules in Mexico are different from those in other countries, but if operators keep some simple regulations in mind, their trips should go smoothly. “The two basic rules to always remember is that a charter or non-scheduled operator cannot make more than two stops within the country,” said Juan Muniz, manager of global regulatory services at Universal Weather and Aviation. “And the second part is that a passenger that is transported into Mexico on one charter or non-scheduled commercial operator cannot be transported out of the country by a different one.” Juan Muniz explains Mexican cabotage rules in this episode of NBAA’s Flight Plan podcast.
