MEXICANA IS FIRST IN ON-TIME PERFORMANCE AMONG AIRLINES FLYING IN THE UNITED STATES

 MEXICO CITY, March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on the on-time performance measurement report issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to rate U.S. airlines, Mexicana occupied first- place among airlines with operations in the United States during the month of January.
 Mexicana Airlines was on time on 85.7 percent of its flights to U.S. destinations such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver and Miami, compared to on-time performance rates of 73.5 percent and 76.6 percent for United and American, respectively, according to the DOT report.
 Since 1987, all airlines have been required to adhere to the rules set by the U.S. DOT, which require that a plane arrive within 14 minutes of its scheduled arrival time in order to be considered on-time.
 "At Mexicana we have used these same guidelines as a reference point to measure the on-time performance of our aircraft in the United States. We are happy to report that during the month of January, we surpassed all U.S. airlines in on-time performance and plan to maintain our first-place standing in order to better serve our passengers," said Capt. Jaan Albrecht, director of operations for Mexicana Airlines.
 Mexicana Airlines transports the largest number of passengers between the United States and Mexico's main tourist destinations. The number of flights that the airline operates, as well as the diverse services and special promotions offered, benefit the more than 3 million passengers that annually utilize Mexicana's international routes.
 Mexicana Airlines is Mexico's longest standing airline and one of the largest international commercial carriers out of the United States. Mexicana has daily flights from Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, San Antonio, Denver, Chicago, New York and Miami.
