Accidents and incidents
- On 14 September 2007 at 19:29 local time, the landing gear of a Magnicharters Boeing 737-200 (registered XA-MAC) collapsed upon landing at Guadalajara International Airport. The aircraft with 103 passengers and 6 crew members had been on Flight 582 from Cancún. Following the crash, an engine fire broke out, but the aircraft was evacuated in time, so that there were no fatalities.
- On 27 April 2009 at approximately at 18:00 local time another undercarriage failure occurred with a Magnicharters Boeing 737-200 (registered XA-MAF) operating a flight from Cancún to Guadalajara, this time as Flight 585. Upon approaching Guadalajara International Airport, the landing gear could not be fully lowered, so the pilots had to perform a belly landing. There were no serious injuries among the 108 passengers and 8 crew on board.
- On 26 November 2015 another landing gear problem on a Boeing 737-300 occurred and caused the left main leg to fail and sway the aircraft, fortunately without any injuries. A photo labelled "MEXICO AIRPORT FIRE DEPT" shows the left main gear leg displaced to the rear, with a broken wing root fairing. This points out not to a folded LG, but a structural failure.
