On June 19, Aeromexico said it was weighting in its options to move towards a better financial position. The airline was analyzing its options to restructure both short and medium term financial commitments. It was aiming to do so without affecting or disrupting operations.
In a statement released on the day, Aeromexico denied planning bankruptcy. “The Company hereby informs that it has not initiated, nor has it made the decision to initiate, a restructuring procedure under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code,” the statement read.
