Mexico’s flag carrier, Aeromexico, announced that it will add service between Mexico City International Airport (MEX) and Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) starting on July 1st. As I wrote about last month, Aeromexico is building its flights to the US back up. Mexico returned to the highest FAA safety category (Category 1) last month after two years of being downgraded (more about this here) and Mexican airlines are starting to file new routes and resume others that were paused.
The daily flights between Mexico’s capital and Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) will operate daily on an Embraer E190 aircraft. Raleigh has seen quite a bit of new international service added lately. Bahamasair restarted flying to The Bahamas’ Grand Bahama International Airport (FPO) in Freeport this month. Air France launched nonstop service to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) a few weeks ago (more here) and Lufthansa is adding service to Frankfurt am Main Airport (FRA) in June (more here).
In addition to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), Aeromexico will start flying to Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) (daily; starts on July 1st), Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) (daily; starts on July 1st), Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) (daily; starts on March 21st), Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) (daily; starts on March 22nd) and McAllen International Airport (MFE) (daily; starts on February 1st) next year.
Anthony’s Take: As predicted, Mexican airlines are adding tons of new routes and restarting others. All of these flights offer easy travel between Mexico and the US and plenty of codeshare opportunities for Delta Air Lines and Aeromexico.
