Líneas Aéreas Azteca planea entrar en operaciones el próximo 15 de noviembre y ya ocupa las instalaciones de lo que fuera Taesa aunque no ha sido declarada oficialmente la quiebra de ésta.
Por MIRIAM PINEDA/ Grupo ReformaCd de México, México.

-Líneas Aéreas Azteca inició la contratación de personal con la intención de entrar en operaciones el próximo 15 de noviembre, y ya ocupa las instalaciones de lo que fuera Taesa, pese a que la quiebra de esta empresa no ha sido ratificada jurídicamente.

    Mostrador de Taesa en el Aeropuerto Mariano Escobedo El principal accionista de Líneas Aéreas Azteca, con 51 por ciento del total, es Leonardo Sánchez Dávalos -dueño de una compañía que transporta gas para Petróleos Mexicanos- quien ya adquirió tres de los aviones que fueran de Taesa.

El 49 por ciento restante pertenece a Consorcio Hispanoamericano de Aviación, donde participan America West y fondos de inversión estadounidenses.

"La asociación que se planea en Líneas Aéreas Azteca no está totalmente definida, aunque los trámites de permisos ya están en marcha", afirmó Juan Antonio Bargés, Director de Aeronáutica Civil.

Taesa fue desautorizada para volar, a raíz de un accidente en el que murieron 18 personas, en noviembre pasado.

El pasado fin de semana, Líneas Aéreas Azteca convocó públicamente a quienes estuvieran interesados en contratarse como sobrecargos para la nueva aerolínea. Se presentaron cerca de 70 aspirantes, provenientes principalmente de Magni Charters y Aerolíneas Internacionales.Los sobrecargos de la extinta Taesa denunciaron que no les están dando preferencia, a pesar de que han esperado un año para su recontratación.

"Ahora quieren poner solamente sobrecargos mujeres y dejarnos afuera a todos los sobrecargos de Taesa, que en su mayoría somos hombres, incluso no se nos ha planteado el esquema de liquidación", expresó un trabajador.

También los pilotos denunciaron la imposición de Mario Alberto Calvet como jefe de pilotos, quien fue removido en Taesa por haber entrenado al copiloto que estaba a cargo del vuelo accidentado.

Angel Celorio, líder sindical de los trabajadores de Taesa, confirmó la ocupación de las instalaciones por parte de la nueva empresa.

"Está la transición entre sindicatura y la nueva empresa para pintura y limpieza. No podemos hacer nada mientras no entren trabajadores", señaló.

De acuerdo con la Ley de Quiebras, Banobras, como síndico responsable de administrar los bienes de Taesa, no puede realizar movimiento alguno hasta que se haya ratificado la sentencia de quiebra.Sin embargo, fuentes cercanas a la operación señalaron que ya existe un contrato de compra-venta, condicionado a la ratificación de la sentencia, responsabilidad de la 15 sala del Tribunal Superior de Justicia del DF.

LoneStarMike:

I think you did a good translation, but the article is a little bit incomplete. What they are trying to say is that after TAESA stop operating in Mexico, there were two or three companies interested in their assets. The problem was that TAESA bankruptcy wasn't officialy declare. So it was until 10 days ago that a judge finally declare the bankruptcy of the airline and following the Mexican Law, they had to sell all the assets to pay the employees for their lost wages. So a Group of investors bought all the assets and they are planning to launch a new low-fare airline; America West is part of the group of investors in the new airline. The article also states that many of the employees that used to work for TAESA are not being hired by the new airline, so they are pretty mad. It is supposed that the new airline will start opperations on november the 15th. under the name of Lineas Aereas Azteca. This is basically what the article is talking about.

About America West being part of the shareholders, I think they want to grow in the mexican Airline market. If you take a look to America West's timeteable, you'll see that since last year, they have added many new destinations in Mexico. We even have Mesa Air flights serving the country and they want to upgrade them to larger planes. America West was also planning to start a non-stop service to CMH (Port Columbus INT) from Mexico City, so they can connect passengers to the northeast of the USA and make of CMH a bigger HUB. If they can feed their flights with the new start up, they can compete with DL, UA, CO and AA for the mexican market.

Hope I answer your question.

I read that information too. But I'm not really sure about that. It sounds weird that both HP and WN would be investors in the same airline, although it could be true.

If you follow the next link to a Mexican newspaper, at the end of the article you'll see that they have both (HP and WN) as investors in the airline, but I will like to confirm their source. (Never trust a Mexican newspaper article about airlines)

By the way, the article is about CINTRA's shareholders starting the sell of Aeromexico and Mexicana as separate airlines.

I'll check some other sources later to confirm that.

Rojo, Muchas gracias para la traducción. (I hope I said that right   ). I, too saw a rumor regarding Southwest and TAESA a couple of months ago. What I'm thinking is that if the group of investors are going to take all of the assets to form a new airline, then Southwest most likely would not be involved. However, if the assets had been sold off in a piece-meal fashion to several different airlines, I could understand Southwest maybe wanting to purchase some of their aircraft. Did TAESA have any 737-300's in their fleet?

LoneStarMike.

TAESA did have 737-300, but most of them were leased and returned to the owner after they stop operating. I know this because our inteligent deparment of justice grounded the 737's (300/400) to guarantee the payment of the salaries to TAESA's employees; but they found out that those airliners were leased and they had to return them to the owners (with lots of complaints coming from employees).

What I read today was that Lineas Aeras Azteca will start operations with 17 737-300 serving most of the destinations flown by TAESA. (Looks like they are trying to follow the WN strategy, don't you think?)
