First Airbus Flight To MEX?

Thu Jul 15, 2004 1:10 am


Anyone knows what airline operated the first airbus operated flight to MEX?
My guess is PanAm A300 in the late 70´s early 80´s, but not sure though.

Cheers,

Actually, I think Eastern used them to MEX before PanAm, when they flew MEX-MIA.

Yeah, I remember Eastern (A300) in the early 80s...

I remember having seen a PanAm A300 in 1979 in MEX.

Henpol,

I think you've got your dates mixed up. If I'm not mistaken, PA received their first A300/A310 in the early eighties.

JOSEMEX: you are absolutely right, it must have been the early 80´s. Did eastern use the buses to other destinations than MEX?

You mean within Mexico? I really don't know but, as ar as I remember, they didn't. (Maybe to CUN sometimes?)

And wasn't that PanAm Aribus operating to MEX an A310???
I remember seeing that a/c quite often at MEX all along the 80s.
Can't wait to see the New Barajas ready

I think PA operated A310's to JKF and A300's to MIA.
