    The best place to look would be the airline website - it'll say what's acceptable there. I don't know Mexico but for domestic flights elsewhere you generally need government-issued ID, but not necessarily a passport. e.g. VivaAerobus list (the 'Important documentation' section): IFE, Passport, Professional license, IMSS card or drivers license. You probably want an answer from someone Mexican though.

According to the FAQ page of the Mexico City International airport, Mexican citizens require ID to fly domestically within Mexico:

A valid ID can be one of:

  • voter ID
  • passport
  • driver's licence
