Aeromexico was founded in 1934 by Antonio Diaz Lombardo with a maiden flight from Mexico City to Acapulco. Throughout the 1940s, the airline continued to grow thanks to Pan Am, who owned 25% of the company. The airline was nationalized in 1959, then expanded greatly in the 1970s under a government plan. As routes were added and the carrier acquired larger aircrafts, Aeromexico grew to become the largest airline in Latin America and the flag carrier of Mexico.
Today Aeromexico works in alliance with Delta Airlines to share all costs and profits. The airline continues to expand in both size and technology, becoming the first airline with a chatbot that lets customers search and book flights via Facebook.
