AUSTIN, Texas – Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, together with its partner Delta Air lines, celebrate one year serving the Austin-Mexico City route.
Through their Joint Cooperation Agreement (JCA), AeroMexico and Delta Air Lines continually seek to offer expanded and improved options for customers traveling between the United States and Mexico through Austin, whether for business or leisure. Together, the airlines extend a bridge in the sky promoting greater tourist, cultural, and trade exchanges between the Texas State Capital and Mexico City.
This year AeroMexico carried nearly 35,000 passengers on the route, and next year could offer more than 1,380 seats per week, thanks to the recent addition of its Embraer 190 aircraft with 99 seats, including 11 in Clase Premier—Aeromexico’s business class cabin.
The AeroMexico daily nonstop flight departs Austin at 1:47 p.m. and arrives in Mexico City at 4:10 p.m. In the opposite direction, the nonstop flight departs Mexico City at 10:10 a.m. and arrives in Austin at 12:32 p.m. Tickets are available at www.aeromexico.com or call 1-800-237-6639. Times published are local to each country and are subject to change without notice.
During this anniversary celebration, Gonzalo Robles, AeroMexico’s North America Division Sales VP, said: “We are aware of the strong ties the State of Texas maintains with Mexico, and, in ensuring air connectivity between both countries, this route is proof of our efforts to further strengthen the bilateral relationship.”
“Seeing the evolution of AeroMexico in Austin over this past year to daily service and larger equipment with premium seats is exciting to note,” said Jim Smith, Executive Director, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. “Mexico’s largest carrier also now enjoys a strengthened partnership with Delta Air Lines making it easy as ever for business and leisure travelers to fly nonstop between Austin and Mexico City.”
With this anniversary, AeroMexico reiterates its commitment to customers to offer an extensive destination network, which through its Joint Cooperation Agreement with Delta Air Lines allow it to strengthen not only transborder connectivity but to improve cultural and tourist exchanges between the United States and Mexico, thanks to the presence it has in these important cities in the State of Texas.
