Vuelamex S.A de CV was a Mexican airline.[1] It was planned as a low-cost (LCC) operator, but it never started operations.


The airline was established in 2002 by capt. Alberto Abed Schekaiban, a former owner of TAESA, to operate as low-fare airline, with services operating from Mexico City and Toluca. The airline planned start operations on 30 April 2002. The first acquired plane was a Boeing 717: the aircraft was painted with the airline livery and lacked only the authorization by the DGAC, but due to the DGAC treating it as the same situation of TAESA, it did not authorize the airline to operate,[2] and the project was cancelled.[3] FlyMex is considered the Vuelamex successor.[citation needed]



  • 1 Boeing 717-200[4]

After of the airline shut down, the 717 was transferred to AirTran.
