Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, is set to increase their winter flights announcing their new direct flight to New York City from Terminal 1 at John F. Kennedy International Airport, according to Airline Industry Today.
As of December 8th, New York Aeromexico passengers will be able to enjoy daily service directly to Monterray on Embraer 190 jet airliners with 99 passenger seats, 11 of which are in Clase Premier, the Aeromexico business class cabin.
Anko van der Werff, Aeromexico EVP of Revenue Management said, “We are very proud to announce this new flight between New York City and Monterrey. This new service extends our network connectivity to cities in Mexico like Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, Bajio-Leon, Queretaro, and Aguascalientes, among others. At the same time, U.S. passengers can connect from more destinations like Boston, Buffalo, Cleveland and Cincinnati, thanks to the Delta Air Lines codeshare flights, and to Rome and Barcelona in Europe, among others.”
Meanwhile, Porfirio Gonzalez, CEO of Grupo OMA, said: “Aeromexico is one of our main partners, which today has a significant presence in Monterrey. Without a doubt, its domestic and international routes, including its flight to Asia from Terminal B, will bring benefits to the different industries that currently position Monterrey as the largest business center in Mexico.”
Aeromexico continues to work to position Monterrey as one of its main hubs, providing more options and better connectivity to 23 destinations including Chihuahua, Hermosillo, San Luis Potosi, Tampico and Torreon in Mexico; Tokyo, Japan and six destinations in the United States including San Antonio, Las Vegas, Atlanta and Detroit, the last two operated by SkyTeam airline alliance partner Delta Air Lines.
The Miami Herald also announced the air company will add a fourth weekly flight between Miami and Merida, the capital of the state of Yucatan, this fall. Aeromexico’s new Saturday service will start November 8. The Mexican carrier already flies between the two destinations on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays. Aeromexico will operate all the flights between Miami and the Merida with a 99-passenger Embraer 190 plane.
