Transportes Aeromar, S.A. de C.V, doing business as Aeromar, is a Mexican airline that operates scheduled domestic services in Mexico and international services to the United States, Guatemala, and Honduras. Its main base is Mexico City International Airport.
The airline was established on January 29, 1987 and started operations on November 7, 1987 as Transportes Aeromar.
It is owned by Grupo Aeromar (private company) (99.99%) and had 864 employees in July 2010. On April 1, 2010, Aeromar signed a commercial alliance with Continental Airlines. Aeromar then announced it would lease two Bombardier CRJ200 regional jets. These twin jet aircraft were subsequently removed from the airline's fleet.
On August 30, 2010, Aeromar and Continental Airlines announced a frequent flyer partnership that allowed each carrier's passengers to earn and redeem miles on either airline. In addition, Continental international first- and business class passengers, Presidents Club members and Star Alliance Gold customers were able to access Aeromar's Salon Diamante lounge in Mexico City at that time. When Continental Airlines merged into United Airlines, the codeshare agreement was transferred over to United.
As of 2018, Avianca is attempting to acquire or merge with Aeromar to become "Avianca Mexico". The airline is awaiting a $100 million USD injection from Avianca's parent company, Synergy Group. Avianca would first acquire up to 49% of the failing airline over the next five months.
