Aeromexico has applied to the US Department of Transportation (DOT) for authority to operate flights between Guadalaraja and Phoenix, Arizona.
The airline plans to operate on the route once weekly, it said in its application.
Aeromexico previously had exemption authority to fly between the two cities, but this expired on 3 February. It is now requesting the authority for one year.
US Airways currently operates between Guadalaraja and Phoenix, according to schedules in Innovata.
