Background A. The Debtors’ Chapter 11 Cases 3. On June 30, 2020 (the “Petition Date”), each Debtor commenced with this Court a voluntary case under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (collectively, the “Chapter 11 Cases”). The Debtors are authorized to continue to operate their businesses as debtors-in-possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. No trustee, examiner, or statutory committee of creditors has been appointed in these chapter 11 cases. 4. The Debtors’ Chapter 11 Cases have been jointly administered for procedural purposes only, pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 1015(b). 5. Additional information regarding the Debtors’ business, capital structure, and the circumstances leading to the commencement of these Chapter 11 Cases is set forth in the Declaration of Ricardo Javier Sánchez Baker in Support of the Debtors’ Chapter 11 Petitions and First Day Pleadings [Docket No. 20] (the “Sánchez Baker Declaration”) and the Declaration of Alejandro Sainz in Support of the Debtors’ Chapter 11 Petitions and Certain of the First Day Pleadings [Docket No. 21] (the “Sainz Declaration” and, together with the Sánchez Baker Declaration, the “First Day Declarations”).

On July 30, 2020, the Debtors filed the Application of Debtors Pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 327(e) and Fed. R. Bankr. P. 2014 and 2016 Authorizing Debtors to Retain White & 6

On September 23, 2020, the Court authorized the employment and retention of White & Case as special counsel to the Debtors nunc pro tunc to the petition date [Docket No. 456] (the “Retention Order”), a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit C. Accordingly, White & Case has been retained as one of the Debtors’ Professionals within the meaning of the Interim Compensation Order. 9. As described more fully below, White & Case has, pursuant to the terms of its retention, assisted the Debtors with various aviation related matters. These include, among other things, the use of rights to acquire aircraft as collateral in connection with debtor-in-possession financing, negotiating the terms of stipulations and redelivery procedure agreements with aircraft lessors, advising on matters related to aircraft purchase contracts and financing arrangements, and various other matters in or related to the Chapter 11 Cases to the extent necessary and as requested by the Debtors, or through their lead counsel, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP. 10.

On March 4, 2021, 2021, White & Case filed and served its Sixth Monthly Statement of White & Case LLP as Special Aviation Counsel to the Debtors for Compensation for Professional Services Rendered and Reimbursement of Actual and Necessary Expenses Incurred from January 1, 2021 through and including January 31, 2021 [Docket No. 945] (the “Sixth Monthly Fee Statement”) for the Compensation Period on the notice parties. 14.

On May 13, 2021, White & Case filed and served its Eighth Monthly Statement of White & Case LLP as Special Aviation Counsel to the Debtors for Compensation for Professional Services Rendered and Reimbursement of Actual and Necessary Expenses Incurred from March 1, 2021 through and including March 31, 2021 [Docket No. 1185] (the “Eighth Monthly Fee Statement”) for the Compensation Period on the notice parties. 16. On May 27, 2021, White & Case filed and served its Ninth Monthly Statement of White & Case LLP as Special Aviation Counsel to the Debtors for Compensation for Professional Services Rendered and Reimbursement of Actual and Necessary Expenses Incurred from April 1, 2021 through and including April 30, 2021 [Docket No. 1235] (the “Ninth Monthly Fee Statement”) for the Compensation Period on the notice parties.2 17. Any amounts paid in respect of the monthly statements submitted by White & Case are subject to a 20% holdback as provided for in the Interim Compensation Order. The aggregate amount of White & Case’s holdback during the Compensation Period is $801,125.71.3 18. As of the filing of this Application, White & Case has not received payments from the Debtors on account of its Ninth Monthly Fee Statement, but anticipates receiving payments on account of the same upon the passing of the Objection Deadline and prior 2 The objection period for White & Case’s Ninth Monthly Fee Statement for the time charged and expenses incurred in Compensation Period has not yet expired. 3 This amount reflects $95,463.20 for January 2021, $125,061.40 for February 2021, $256,813.90 for March 2021, and an anticipated amount of $323,787.21 for April 2021. 9

to the hearing to approve the Application.4 White & Case’s detailed time records for the Compensation Period are attached hereto as Composite Exhibit H. 19. This is White & Case’s third application for allowance of interim compensation for services rendered and for reimbursement of expenses. D. Disbursements and Expenses 20. During the Compensation Period, White & Case has incurred actual and necessary expenses in the amount of $1,682.91 in connection with rendering legal services to the Debtors as special aviation counsel. An itemization of these expenses is attached hereto as Exhibit I. The expenses reflect White & Case’s direct costs, and are not incorporated into the White & Case hourly fees. 21. White & Case respectfully submits that the actual expenses incurred in providing legal services on each special matter for which reimbursement is sought in this Application were necessary, reasonable, and justified in the circumstances of these cases to serve the needs of the Debtors. Relief Requested 22. By this Application, White & Case seeks interim approval of $4,005,302.00 in fees calculated at the applicable guideline hourly billing rates as compensation for professional services rendered and reimbursement of $1,682.91 as actual and necessary expenses incurred during the Compensation Period.5 4 Assuming no objections are filed, White & Case expects to receive on an interim basis $323,787.21 in fees (representing 80% of $1,618,936.05) and $1,682.91 in expenses (representing 100% of the expenses requested), in connection with the Ninth Monthly Fee Statement. 5 The total amount sought for fees and expenses reflects voluntary reductions for the Compensation Period of $237,699.50 in fees, approximately a 5.9 % reduction. 10

10

Reasonableness of Fees and Disbursements 23. Section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code authorizes the Court to award “reasonable compensation for actual, necessary services rendered by the . . . professional person.” 11 U.S.C. § 330. White & Case respectfully submits that its request for an interim award of compensation for the Compensation Period satisfies that standard. 24. In accordance with section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code, the amount requested herein by White & Case is fair and reasonable in light of (a) the nature of the Chapter 11 cases, requiring aviation expertise, (b) the time and labor required to effectively provide aviation counsel to the Debtors, (c) the specialized nature and extent of the services rendered, (d) White & Case’s experience, reputation, and ability, (e) the value of White & Case’s services, and (f) the cost of comparable services outside of cases under the Bankruptcy Code. Nature of the Services Provided in the Chapter 11 Cases 25. As discussed above, White & Case professionals performed legal work for the Debtors in connection with aviation related matters. White & Case has provided legal counsel regarding: (i) the aircraft owned by the Debtors, including the financing of such aircraft and any debtor-in-possession financing, and any restructuring, negotiating and termination of such financings, (ii) aircraft leased by the Debtors, including the lease documentation relating to such aircraft, including the restructuring, negotiating, and termination of such leases, (iii) any contracts relating to the purchase of aircraft by the Debtors, including the financing of such orders and any restructuring, negotiating and termination of such financings and/or order contracts, (iv) necessary applications, motions, complaints, answers, orders, reports, and other pleadings, and documents, in connection with the foregoing, and (v) certain other matters in or related to the Chapter 11 Cases to the extent necessary and as requested by the Debtors, including, but not limited to, the Debtors’ 11

11

aircraft, leases, secured financing facilities, ongoing operations and related issues, as well as general aviation and asset related assistance. 26. Given the variety of complex issues that arose in the course of these Chapter 11 Cases, there were circumstances where a number of White & Case professionals needed to participate in discussions, negotiations, and strategy meetings. White & Case believes that it has, through the summaries contained in this Application and the time entries attached to the Monthly Fee Statements, sufficiently articulated the need for such participation. Compliance with Guidelines 27. White & Case believes that this Application, including the certification contained in the Declaration in Support and the information in the other exhibits attached hereto, complies in all material respects with the Fee Guidelines. To the extent this Application does not comply in every respect with the requirements of such Fee Guidelines, White & Case respectfully requests a waiver for any such technical non-compliance. No Prior Request 28. No prior request for the relief sought herein has been made to this Court or any other court. Notice 1. Notice of this Application shall be given upon the following parties (the “Application Recipients”): (i) Grupo Aeroméxico, S.A.B. de C.V., Paseo de la Reforma No. 243, piso 25 Colonia Cuauhtémoc, Mexico City, C.P. 06500, Attn.: Daniel Martinez Martinez and Patricia Bobadilla, Email: dmartinezm@aeromexico.com, mbobadilla@aeromexico.com; (ii) counsel to the Debtors, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, 450 Lexington Avenue, New York, New York 10017, Attn.: Timothy Graulich and Stephen Piraino, Email: 12
