Aeromexico to restore London-Mexico City flights in April

Aeromexico is to resume flights between Heathrow and Mexico City from April 1 as Covid-19 travel restrictions continue to be eased.

The Mexican carrier plans to operate five weekly flights on the route between the British capital and Mexico City, using Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

Aeromexico said the restoration of the London route means it will operate more than 330 flights per month between Mexico and Europe from April.

The SkyTeam member airline already operates routes from Amsterdam, Madrid and Paris to Mexico City, as well as routes between Madrid and Guadalajara and Monterrey, both of which launched as new routes in December 2021.

Giancarlo Mulinelli, Aeromexico’s Senior Vice President of Global Sales, said: “We are celebrating our return to Heathrow, which is one of our customers’ favorite routes for business and leisure travel.

“We are resuming service with our best aircraft, and we are sure that we will continue to connect Mexico to Europe by offering the best service and the highest health and hygiene protocols.”

Aeromexico has been operating flights to London since 2012 and passengers can connect to more than 40 domestic destinations in Mexico.

Heathrow commercial director Ross Baker said the return of the Mexico City route would provide a “great platform” to rebuild trade between the UK and Mexico after the pandemic.

“With the easing of travel restrictions and the resumption of five weekly flights to Mexico City, passengers now have more choice and businesses can begin to develop stronger business ties again with one of the largest emerging markets in the world. “, added Baker.
