Aeroméxico flight AM2431 was flying from Guadalupe Victoria International Airport in Durango to Mexico City when it crashed at around 16:00 local time (21:00 GMT) on 31 July.
International rules dictate that Mexico will lead the crash investigation, with help from Brazil - where the Embraer jet was built - and the US, where its engines were made.
The director of Mexico's civil aviation agency, Luis Gerardo Fonseca, told broadcaster ADN40 that his team were combing the crash site, assisted by the US National Transportation Safety Board and US Federal Aviation Administration.
The US State Department has confirmed that at least 65 US citizens were on board the flight.
It could potentially take months for investigators to work out what happened.Published: 2018-08-02 14:25:44
