To meet the growth on March 2021, Aeromexico grew its capacity in Available Seat Kilometres (ASK) by 3.2 per cent, although this was also much reduced when compared to April 2019, at just 57.5 per cent of capacity.
The split between domestic and international capacity was again stark, with domestic reaching 97.4 per cent of pre-pandemic levels compared to 42.2 per cent for international.
