McDonnell Douglas DC-10-15 - Aeroméxico

Aeroméxico (Aerovías de México) is the national airline of Mexico. Its main base is Mexico City International Airport. It was founded as Aeronaves de México in 1934 and operated its first flight between Mexico City and Acapulco on 14 September of that year. The current name was adopted in 1972.

The airline started flying widebody aircraft in 1974, when it received two McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 aircraft. In 1981 two DC-10-15 were added to the fleet, followed by two more DC-10-30s in 1983 and 1989. The DC-10-15 was a version adapted for conditions at hot and high airports and specially developed for Aeroméxico and Mexicana, the only customers. Later widebody types in the Aeroméxico fleet are the Boeing 767 and 777, while the 787 is on order.
