Round-trip tickets are issued in the form of two one-way tickets, one from a Mexican point of origin to a U.S. destination, and another from a U.S. point of origin to a Mexican destination. Travelers who purchase a round-trip ticket must compete both segments of their trip within six months of the first ticket's purchase date.The return portion of a trip must be booked through the ticket office at least 24 hours prior to the departure. At that time, travelers are given confirmation for the departure itself and the preferred seat selection.

Children, defined as passengers between the ages of 3 and 10, are eligible for discounted child tickets in the amount of 50 percent off a Mexican route and 30 percent off an American-originating ticket.
