AEROMEXICO CELEBRATES FIVE YEARS SERVING THE MEXICO CITY-LONDON ROUTE
Mexico City, Jan. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, celebrates its fifth anniversary operating the Mexico City-London route. In 2017 the carrier was recognized as the airline with the best on-time performance at the London Heathrow Airport for six months in a row, in addition to carrying more than 127,000 passengers during the year which represents a 19.88% increase over 2016.
For more than 60 years, Mexico’s global airline has positioned itself in the European market by serving different destinations such as Madrid, Paris, Amsterdam and London. Aeromexico currently serves these destinations by offering 35 flights with 17,800 seats per week.
For several years now, Mexico and the United Kingdom have maintained the strongest bilateral relationship in their history. The UK is the sixth largest trade partner in the Latin America region and the 18th largest trade partner worldwide. It is also the fourth nation in the European Union that most invests in Mexico, holding the sixth place worldwide. Having a bridge in the skies that facilitates the relationship between both countries was fundamental to consolidating these ties, and currently serves to create new investment opportunities.
Aeromexico’s service quality has also made it the customers’ airline of choice. In 2012 Aeromexico started serving the market with three nonstop flights per week. In May 2017 it added new frequencies to offer seven flights with more than 3,200 seats on the route per week, where it expects to increase its capacity by 7% this year.
