This article presents information on operating airlines in Mexico. For American operators Mexico very much qualifies as an international destination with all the caveats. As commerce between the two countries increases, business aviation activity in Mexico is becoming more prominent. A republic, Mexico has been politically stable in recent years and many areas of the country have become popular tourist destinations for the U.S. citizens. The Mexican climate ranges from tropical to desert and the terrain consists of coastal lowlands, central high plateaus and mountains extending to 18,000 feet. Mexico's business languages are Spanish and English and at its larger international airports travelers will usually find someone who speaks an adequate level of English.
