I´ve heard that VuelaMex, Mexico-based start-up with four Boeing B717-200, has not been able to recieve an AOC. Can anyone confirm this?

Yes.

The Mexican Ministry of Transportation has not granted VuelaMex the Operating Certificate for several reasons. The first and most important: rumors are that some of TAESAS's ex-share holders are involved in the airline and most of the people who used to run TAESA will run VuelaMex. The four B717-200 are ready for delivery in Long Beach California. Hope they get the Certificate so we can se the B717-200 in the Mexican skies.

Yes that is true, also they have 2 more scheduled for delivery next year, if the 717 is still being built then.

VuelaMex is still waiting to recieve its certificate, but that should take place any time according to company sources.
Once the certificate is received VuelaMex will commence operations within a month.
The (4) 717s are ready and waiting to be delivered and beleive me what a beautiful paint scheme they have.
I have photographed all four airplanes in Long Beach and they will be a wonderful addition to Mexican skies. That's all for now.

It is true, according to airlinersonline.com

But, they said that it will probably start at the beginning of 2002.

They had to postpone the delivery of its first B717 with Pembroke due to problems with the Mexican Authorities and with their operating certificate.
The Mexican Ministry of Transportation did not grant the Operating Certificate to VuelaMex because of the close connection to TAESA, so they will have to demonstrate that they won't be like TAESA if they want the certificate.

There is no precise date for start of operations. We will have to wait just like we did with Azteca.

Isn't the hatred towards TAESA fueled by Cintra and ASPA, whose interests where hurt by TAESA? The guys who ran TAESA where aggresive entrepeneurs and managed to get a big share of the Mexican market. Should VuelaMex ever fly, it will give a bad time to AM and MX. They have asked for it. MEX-ACA $400+ USD on AM. Give me a break!!!

Pretty amazing that a startup airline with no operating certificate and what seems to be questionable finances and personalities behind the scenes can buy/lease brand new aircraft, have them ready for delivery and then.......
........fall strangely silent!

TAESA did get a good share of the mexican market in it's few years of operation, it was also run by aggressive entrepeneurs, and it also hurt the interests of CINTRA and ASPA.....but please don't forget they had overworked staff, they contastantly overbooked their flights, the had biggest share of costumer complaints against all of mexican airlines, the most unreliable service in Mexico, the lowest on-time record...and not to mention TWO deadly crashes.

Need I say more?
