Aeromexico announced three weekly nonstop flights between Mexico City and Amsterdam starting on May 29, 2016, making the city its fourth destination in Europe.
This new route will be operated using Boeing 787 aircraft with 243 seat capacity, including 32 seats in Clase Premier, Aeromexico’s Business Class Cabin.
Anko van der Werff, Aeromexico’s Chief Revenue Officer, said:
“Aeromexico is extremely proud to add Amsterdam to its European route network. The Netherlands is the fourth largest Mexico’s trading partner in the European Union, and nowadays, an average of 200,000 annual passengers travel between both capital cities”.
“With this flight, Aeromexico will be able to offer a quality service to all of its customers traveling from the Netherlands on board our Boeing 787 aircraft with greater connectivity options to the main cities in Mexico, such as Guadalajara, Monterrey, and Puerto Vallarta, and in Central and South America, including San Jose, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Panama.”, he added.
One of the key factors in establishing this new route is Amsterdam’s status as a major SkyTeam hub where KLM offers a significant number of flights within Europe. Aeromexico is a founding member of the SkyTeam airline alliance.
Aeromexico’s fleet of about 130 aircraft is comprised of Boeing 787, 777 and 737 jet airliners and next generation Embraer 145, 170, 175 and 190 models. In 2012, the airline announced the most significant investment strategy in aviation history in Mexico, to purchase 100 Boeing aircraft including 90 MAX B737 jet airliners and 10 B787-9 Dreamliners.
