Aeromexico Flying High

Carrier Boosts Canadian Service As Demand Rises


Tis’ the season for expanded air service between this country and Mexico City.

Aeromexico is boosting the number of flights it offers between Canada and Mexico’s capital, a move it says reflects growing demand fueled in part by Ottawa’s decision to do away with visas for Mexicans wanting to visit Canada, a move that will take place just before the arrival of Christmas, reports Ian Stalker in this week’s digital edition of Travel Courier.

Dec. 2 will see Aeromexico begin offering 11 weekly scheduled flights to Montreal, while the following day sees the number of weekly flights offered to both Vancouver and Toronto rise to 10 a week.

All three cities now see daily service.

“We’re bumping it up because see see the demand,” says Alejandro Bosquez of Aeromexico’s head office. “We’re growing the market.”

“We’re seeing that in bookings. It keeps going up,” he said.

Air Canada also flies to Mexico City, which doesn’t concern Aeromexico, with Bosquez stating “there’s enough demand for both products.”

The Mexican carrier says northbound traffic is a combination of business travel, tourists and those visiting relatives in this country.
