  • Cancun to Tapachula
    Jul 27, 2015
    Hello, I am thinking of buying a flight from Cancun to Tapachula with a layover in Mexico City. The flight from Cancun lands in Mexico City at 1.21pm, and the flight from Mexico to Tapachula departs at 3.05pm? Both flights purchased on the one ticket. Is this enough layover time? Thank you.


    Yes, since both flights are domestic that should be enough time.

    Flying from Chicago to Santiago through Mexico City on Aeromexico; do I clear customers or immigration in Mexico City or just transfer to connecting gates?


    Yes, you will have to go through Mexican Immigration and Customs.


  • Which terminal
    Jul 24, 2015
    Which terminal is for decorating to San Fransisco? Or what's the difference between termilan 1 and 2?


    Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 are on opposite sides of the airport. What airline are you flying to San Francisco. That determines what terminal you use.

    Will be flying into Mexico City with Air Canada from Toronto and need to connect to an Aeromexico flight to Acapulco two hours later. Is this possible to connect in time for the next flight. Will only have carry on bags.


    It should be possible. Check in for your Aeromexico flight online before you leave Canada to save some time.


  • Connection from UA to CM at MEX
    Jul 23, 2015
    Hi there, I am booked on a single ticket with a connection in MEX: arriving on United at 5.30am and connecting to Copa at 7am. I will only have carry-on bags and should have my onward boarding pass, but I understand I may have to change terminals. How likely is it that I make my connection? Thank you!


    It's possible but very difficult. MEX isn't exactly the most efficient airport.


    Thanks for your response. So I understand what's involved, I assume I should follow signs for immigration and baggage claim? And then after that will there be signs for the train to the other terminal?

    I am flying from dallas to mexiico city on american airline and then to tapachula mexico on aeromex do i have to change terminals


    Yes, American uses Terminal 1 and Aeromexico uses Terminal 2. I recommend at least 3 hours for your connection, preferably 4.


    Also will i have to check my bags again in mexico city . All though i have a connecting flight?


    You will have to claim your bags to go through Mexican customs. If you purchased two separate tickets you will have to bring them with you to Terminal 2.


    Can you hire help thru the airport?

    Arriving on Volaris at 16:20, and leaving for Oaxaca on Interjet at 18:50. Enough time?


    Is the Volaris flight international or domestic? Will you have checked bags?


    It is international. No checked bags


    You should have enough time if your Volaris flight is on-time. You can check-in online for your Interjet flight before you leave on your first flight to save some time at MEX.

    I arrive from Atlanta on Delta and have a connection to Mazatlan 1hr 35 mins. later. on Aerolitoral DBA Aeromexico Connect. I think both flights are Term 2. Can I make the connection and do I have to pick up and recheck baggage that is already checked to MAZ?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you will have to claim your baggage to go through Mexican customs in MEX, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk.


  • any advice

    Flying from Maztlan on Aeromexico into MEX then on Delta to Salt Lake, we only have about an hour to get from one to the other. Any advice to make it quicker


    I think you should have enough time if the flight from Mazatlan is on-time.


    Did you make the connection? Was it in the same terminal?

    I'm flying from Havana with Cubana arriving MEX at 7:45 then flying to LAX with United on a different ticket at 9:45. Will I make it?


    Since both Cubana and United use Terminal 1, it's possible, but it depends on your Cubana flight being on-time and things going smoothly at Mexican immigration.

    Hello, we are flying from Vietnam through Houston with United, arriving in Mexico at 14h09, and have a flight to Cuba at 16h15 with Aeromexico. Can we make it? Thanks


    Considering that you will have to change terminals and that you will have to clear Mexican immigration and customs first, It hink it will be very difficult.
