REMINDER: Media Advisory: Mexicana Airlines Relocates to New Check-In Counters in Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2009) -


WHAT:    Los Angeles World Airports and Mexicana Airlines will conduct a
         ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the relocation of the
         airline's check-in operations to newly renovated counters in the
         Upper/Departures Level of the Tom Bradley International Terminal
         (TBIT) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).  The airline
         temporarily moved its check-in operations to the Lower/Arrivals
         Level in April 2007 to accommodate phased renovations of the
         terminal's entire airline check-in lobbies during the last two
         years.  The ticketing lobbies are just one element of a
         $752.5-million renovation of the Tom Bradley International
         Terminal. The new ticketing counters and check-in lobby feature
         bright, energy-saving lighting; upgraded check-in systems; new
         video displays to provide up-to-the-minute flight status; clearer
         public address system; and improved air conditioning.  In
         addition, Mexicana will introduce its new corporate colors and
         logo.  Mexicana is the busiest international airline at LAX.
         The overall TBIT renovations program is scheduled to be completed
         early 2010.
