Aeromexico is set to resume flights between London Heathrow and Mexico City from April 1.

The airline will operate five weekly flights operated by its B787 Dreamliner aircraft, with customers travelling from London able to connect to more than 42 domestic destinations in Mexico.

The Skyteam member said that the resumption of the route means that it will operate over 330 flights per month between Mexico and Europe from April.

Aeromexico offers six direct routes from London, Madrid, Amsterdam, and Paris to Mexico City, as well as services from Madrid to Guadalajara and Monterrey which launched last December.

Giancarlo Mulinelli, senior vice president of global sales at Aeromexico, commented:

“We celebrate our return to London Heathrow International Airport, which is one of our customers’ preferred routes for business and leisure travel. We resume service with our best airplanes, and we are sure that we will continue connecting Mexico with Europe offering the best service and the highest health and hygiene protocols.”

Heathrow chief commercial officer Ross Baker added:

“We are delighted to welcome Aeromexico back to Heathrow so that our passengers can get back to visiting the fantastic destinations Mexico has to offer. With travel restrictions easing and the airline resuming five flights a week to Mexico City, passengers now have more choice and businesses can go back to developing stronger trade links with one of the largest emerging markets in the world.

“Almost half of UK-Mexico trade totaling £1.5bn traveled through Heathrow in 2019, so the return of Aeromexico is a great platform to start rebuilding that success.”
