The February 5, 1973, maiden flight of a DC-6 4-engine propeller-driven Mexicana Airlines airliner, tail number XA-MUK, was a success, as were the other successful flights. The first plane left Mexico City at 9:00 am and landed at the original Cancun air strip at 12:20 pm. The Mexicana Airlines flights became more frequent with DC-6s, with 72 passengers, later 727s, with 160 seats, and DC-10s, with a capacity of 311 passengers.
