Aeromexico reveals sharp increase in London capacity

Aeromexico has announced plan to add more frequencies on five of its principal international routes during summer 2017.

The carrier will significantly increase flights to Amsterdam, London, Madrid, Shanghai, and Santiago on a weekly basis.

This increase represents nearly 40 per cent of its current seat capacity on these five routes, operating its Boeing 787 Dreamliner, one of the most modern commercial aircrafts in the sky.

In Europe, Aeromexico will offer daily flights from Mexico City to Amsterdam and London Heathrow - increasing from three and six flights per week respectively.

The carrier will also increase its seat capacity to Madrid by 15 per cent, giving a total of 12 flights per week.

The airline is also planning to increase its service to Asia by more than 65 per cent, which gives Shanghai five flights per week.

In South America, a daily service to Santiago, Chile, will also be added to the current service of five flights per week.

Aeromexico chief revenue officer, Anko van der Werff, said: “This significant increase in flight frequencies to our core global markets reflects Aeromexico’s commitment to continue expanding its network of destinations by offering increased seat capacity to our customers in Mexico and across the globe.

“These actions are due to the growth of our fleet by the number of wide-body aircraft we will receive during the rest of this year and in the first half of 2017, to offer customers increased connectivity options to more than 80 of our destinations.”

With the increase in flight frequencies, Aeromexico continues to develop and expand its extensive network of international connections on three continents.

It looks to provide passengers with more and better travel options and continues to be the only airline from Mexico offering direct flights to Europe, and the only Latin American carrier with a presence in Asia.
