History

Aeronaves de Mexico (AeroMexico) was founded in 1934, with the help of Pan Am, which owned 40 percent of the new Mexican airline. The airline was initially known as Aeronaves de México. Aeroméxico saw few changes for the next two decades. However, during the 1950s, renovation began, and the airline took over various competitor companies, including a carrier called Aerovias Guest, which was the original owner of the routes to Madrid and Paris.
