The largest Mexican airline, Aeromexico, was established on 15 September 1934 in Mexico City under the original name Aero-Aves de Mexico. The maiden flight departed on the route from Mexico City to the Acapulco resort. The aviation company was immediately able to consolidate and expand its position in Central America. In the 60s the airline took over all regional competitors and has since February 1972 been known under the new name Aeromexico.
