Aeromexico has announced the beginning of new service with four weekly flights between Mexico City and Seoul, South Korea, set to launch on May 27th.
This new service is in line with the carrier’s international expansion plans for 2017.
The route will be operated with Aeromexico’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which has a capacity of 243 passengers, including 32 in Clase Premier, Aeromexico’s business class cabin.
The 787 Dreamliner is considered one of the most modern commercial aircraft in the skies, featuring extra legroom between seats and bigger overhead bins for carry-on bags, larger push-button dimmable windows, and Sky Interiors LED lighting.
Aeromexico chief revenue, Anko van der Werff said: “Aeromexico is proud to add Seoul to its route network as its third destination in Asia, as it maintains its position as the only airline in Latin America offering direct flights to that continent.”
Mexico is South Korea’s top trading partner in Latin America, according to its trade balance, while South Korea is Mexico’s sixth-largest trading partner with many Korean companies doing business in Mexico, such as Daewoo, Kwang Dong, KIA Motors, Kwangjin, LG, POSCO, and Samsung.
“This new flight will benefit both business and leisure customers alike,” added the Aeromexico executive.
