Mexican authorities approve new routes

The Mexican federal Undersecretary of Transportation has disclosed that five airlines have requested permission for between three and six new routes each. The airlines include American Airlines, Delta, Southwest and Hawaiian, with a fifth is pending, which are requested more routes to Monterrey, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, Cancún and Mérida.

The expansion of routes comes as a result of the signing of a new air accord between Mexico and the U.S., which took effect in August and replaced one that dated back to 1960.
