Cancun, Q.R. — As of November, Aeroméxico says they will begin offering a new Cancun to Medellin route.
In order to expand their presnece in Colombia, the airline says they will begin offering the new direct flight in November for five months. Anko van der Werff, Executive Director of Aeromexico, stressed that with the addition of the new flight, Aeromexico becomes the first airline to operate the route with a direct flight.
The new flight, they say, complements the connectivity between Mexico and Colombia since the airline has had a presence in the South American country for the past seven years.
To date it operates three daily flights from Mexico City to Bogota and one from Mexico City to Medellin. The new Cancun to Medellin flight will operate twice a week. Passengers can enjoy a Saturday or Sunday flights.
Adolfo Castro, CEO of ASUR at the Cancun International Airport, congratulated Aeromexico for the opening of its new Cancun-Medellín route, which he said, will further strengthen the ties between the two countries.
“It highlights the importance, since more than 76,000 passengers traveled between these two cities in the last year. Starting the month of November, passengers will be able to do it directly with greater comfort and speed in their flights,” explained Sara Ramírez Restrepo, general manager of Airplan, a company of the ASUR Group.
