The check in process must be carried out at the airport counters. Web check-in is not available at the moment.

For your information, the width of our seats between the 2 armrests is:

  • Aircraft ATR-42, 17 inches = 43 cm. wide
  • Aircraft ATR-72, 18 inches = 45 cm. wide

If the width of your waist is greater than these measures, we recommend reserving a second seat. In this manner, you will ensure that you travel with an empty seat next to you, for your comfort and safety. However, it is very important to advise you that the AEROMAR fleet is made up of ATR 42 and ATR 72 equipment, depending on the equipment in which they fly they may have folding armrests.

People who are paralyzed or without upper limbs, but who can use their lower extremities, can travel unaccompanied. On board, assistance will be provided to fasten and unbuckle the safety belt, and to place and adjust the oxygen mask if necessary. In contrast, assistance does not include:

  • Help eating or taking medications
  • Assistance in the toilets
  • Any other assistance of a personal nature

Therefore, it is necessary to make sure that the person traveling alone satisfies all of the conditions necessary to travel by aircraft, without outside assistance.

Our aircraft do not have electrical outlets to connect breathing apparatus on board. Therefore, the passenger must verify the autonomy of the device and, if necessary, provide additional batteries.

Passengers who require one may use a Portable Oxygen Concentrator without restriction.

According to CO SA-09.2/13 authorized POCs are equipment certified for use in aviation according to the standards of the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics, (RTCA for its acronym in English), the models on the market can be found at the following web address for quick reference:

Passengers who require one may carry a Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC) with them under the following conditions:

  • The portable oxygen concentrator (POC) is considered non-hazardous material and is included in the assistance items. It does not count towards the baggage limits on board, regardless of whether they are used on board or not. They must be the right size to fit under the seat or in the overhead compartment.
  • Additionally, the user must ensure that the batteries carried in the POC on board the aircraft are protected from a possible short circuit, as well as to pack them in such a way as to prevent physical damage to the unit.
  • When a POC is carried as carry-on baggage and is not used during the flight, the battery should be removed and packaged separately, unless the POC contains at least two guard mechanisms to prevent accidental operation of the device.
  • To prevent accidental activation, for POCs that are transported as checked baggage, the batteries must be removed and placed in carry-on baggage. Such batteries should be adequately protected to avoid any short circuit.

If a passenger needs to use a POC on board, he or she must satisfy the following requirements before boarding the aircraft:

  • The passenger must notify the airline that he or she will travel and/or use a POC on board the aircraft, for which he or she must present a medical certificate authorizing him/her to travel by aircraft, which must contain the full name, the professional credential, the address, telephone number and signature of the attending physician.
  • The passenger traveling with a POC will not be able to be seated in an emergency exit row, in case of needing to use it in flight, they must notify the Flight Crew.

The concentrator must be carried by the passenger and presented to the Passenger Service Agent and Flight Crew when requested at any time during their trip. It will be the passenger’s responsibility to ensure that they have enough batteries to power the POC during the flight, if required.

Take into account that our aircraft do not have electrical outlets to connect breathing apparatus on board, therefore, the passenger should verify the autonomy of the device, and if necessary, provide additional batteries, in case of deviations or delays.

When making the reservation, it is suggested that you inform us that the person has an intellectual disability and indicate the type of assistance required.

Assistance to people with intellectual disabilities does not include:

  • Help eating or taking medications
  • Assistance in the toilets
  • Any other assistance of a personal nature

Therefore, it is necessary to make sure that the person traveling alone satisfies all of the conditions necessary to travel by aircraft, without outside assistance. Otherwise, to avoid difficulties on board, we recommend that people with intellectual disabilities travel accompanied.

Aeromar allows the vast majority of people with intellectual disabilities to travel alone. To this end, they must be able to understand and apply safety measures. However, it is necessary to take into account the characteristics of an aircraft voyage:

  • The path through big airports can be complex, long and exhausting.
  • The security, police and customs procedures can be long, stressful and, sometimes, intrusive.
  • In international airports, difficulties that the language and orientation may pose are real.
  • The flight may be disturbed by turbulence and/or require unusual safety measures.

Note: for certain types of deficiencies that cause memory or orientation losses (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease), the risks of not following the crew’s instructions are real: for example, deboarding without waiting for the expected assistance; which can have serious consequences (the person can get lost inside or outside the terminal, using inappropriate means of transport, locating difficulties, etc.)

If the person who is going to travel might be in this situation, we recommend that they travel accompanied.

The assistance services for people with hearing disabilities or deafness are limited due to their autonomy.

Please note that in the country there are still not enough certified Mexican Sign Language interpreters to train the staff of all the airlines. Do not hesitate to inform us about your disability, no later than 48 hrs. prior to the trip, so that we can offer the necessary assistance.

Emotional support animals can travel in the cabin with you, demonstrating with medical documents (Letter from the attending psychologist or psychiatrist) that it is essential that you travel with them. The certificate must have been issued within one year, counting from the initial date of the trip and must specify that the patient is under professional care and requires the animal for traveling on the aircraft

In the absence of the required documentation, it will be treated like a pet and must travel in the baggage compartment of the aircraft, assuming the cost for the transportation of the pet and satisfying the requirements for it.

Aeromar transports your guide dog or any other Service animal free of charge in the cabin. The conditions of acceptance and transport are the following:

  • Your Service animal must respect all the sanitary requirements of the departure, arrival and/or connection countries.
  • Must be clean, and wear a collar and identification on the neck. If not, you must justify its role as a Service animal.
  • A muzzle is not mandatory.
  • Must remain on a leash at all times.
  • It should not impede the aisles.
  • Its behavior must be above reproach under all circumstances.
  • We will propose a seat with as much space as possible, but your Service animal will not be able to occupy a seat. Emergency exits rows are prohibited.

If you have a service animal, such as a guide dog, you can travel with it. If you require your service animal to travel by your side, remember that it cannot occupy a seat, even if it is unoccupied, or impede the movement of other passengers or their comfort. If you are traveling with a guide dog, you will be assigned an aisle seat.

If you are traveling on an international flight, bear in mind that most countries have very strict policies regarding the arrival of foreign animals, take all precautions to avoid delays and misunderstandings at customs. Some measures include having a passport that certifies the animal as a service animal and an official book of applied vaccines.

Upon arrival on board, the cabin crew will help you get situated and provide you information about your environment on the aircraft, such as proximity to doors and emergency exits, toilet location, location of buttons to summon the Flight Crew, and will also provide you with safety information personally, as applicable, the use of the safety belt and any security situation that passengers should be aware of.

During meals, if desired, the onboard staff can describe and explain the composition of the food.

Finally, the Flight Crew will assist you moving to the toilet, but cannot provide assistance within it.

Yes, if your wheelchair uses batteries, in order to be transported they must be of the so-called “Dry” (gel and lithium batteries) type, the transporting of wheelchairs that use wet batteries is prohibited.

Take into account that if the batteries of your chair do not satisfy the safety requirements, this could prevent you from traveling.

In case your wheelchair is checked at the counter and stored in the baggage compartment, we will provide one as a loan so that you can move from our counters to the boarding room and the aircraft to the baggage reclaim hall on arrival, as well as an aisle chair getting in and out of the aircraft.

Aeromar transports a wheelchair or personal, manual or electric mobility equipment for free. A second wheelchair will be considered within the baggage allowance, if it exceeds the current allowance the charge for excess baggage would be applied.

At AEROMAR we do not have equipment to refrigerate medications; take your precautions such as traveling with a thermos or sealed thermal bag, as required for the preservation of your dose.

It is highly recommended that you have your medical prescription on hand too; preferably written in English if your flight is international; make sure the prescription indicates whether you need to use syringes for the application of the dose

Keep in mind that it is an international policy that no member of the Flight Crew is allowed to help you consume your food or with your personal hygiene. Nor are they allowed to carry a passenger or provide medical assistance, such as injections. In case you require any of this type of assistance, it is recommended that you travel with a companion who can support you.

On-board assistance, provided by the Flight Crew, includes:

  • Assistance moving to and from your seat, as part of boarding and deboarding procedures.
  • Assistance in provisioning of food, for example, opening packages and identifying food.
  • Assistance for a semi-ambulatory person to move to and from the toilets, without carrying them.
  • Assistance storing carry-on baggage.

Your boarding is a priority, with the intention that with the pre-boarding you are allowed to settle quietly on board before the arrival of the other passengers and be taken in individually by the crew, who will provide you information useful for traveling in optimal safety and comfort conditions.

No, you cannot check in via web, it is very important that you arrive at the counters 1 hour before the departure of the flight to optimally organize the required assistance

Aeromar advises you to arrive at the airport 1 hour before the departure of the flight to optimally organize the required assistance.
