United Airlines is chopping its flight services between the U.S. and Mexico as travel demand has waned.
The service between Los Angeles and Mexico City will end October 4. United Airlines also will halt flights this summer from the U.S. to the Pacific beach resorts of Huatulco and Mazatlan, and to the Gulf Coast oil town of Villahermosa.
United Airlines said that their network in Mexico remain strong. But the demand on certain routes has declined and service to some markets is unsustainable. They continue to closely monitor demand for travel in the region and look for new flying opportunities for our customers.
United Airlines is also stepping back from Mexico as Delta Air Lines Inc. marks the one-year anniversary of an alliance with Grupo Aeromexico SAB that allows the carriers to jointly plan schedules and set fares on 1,100 weekly flights. Delta also holds a 49 percent stake in Aeromexico.
United Airlines also said that the management remains committed to Mexico and has doubled capacity between the two nations over the past decade.
