balance our expansion plans globally," stated Andres Conesa, CEO, Aeromexico.

including pre-paid, and accounts in Brazil and the United States. The product
availability in multi-lingual and multi-currency has helped Aeromexico in its
growth initiatives by enabling several products to be launched throughout the
globe. Strategic plans ensure for large corporate market share and new
products launched by Aeromexico globally.
