Mexico returned to the highest FAA safety category (Category 1) this month after two years of being downgraded (more about this here). Now, Aeromexico is beefing up its flights from Mexico City’s Aeropuerto Internacional Benito Juárez (MEX) to seven US destinations.
In December, Aeromexico will increase service from Mexico City to:
- Denver International Airport (DEN) (five additional weekly flights)
- Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) (eight additional weekly flights)
- Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) (three additional weekly flights)
- Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) (six additional weekly flights)
- Miami International Airport (MIA) (14 additional weekly flights)
- New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) (seven additional weekly flights)
- Orlando International Airport (MCO) (nine additional weekly flights)
With its return to Category 1 status, we can expect to see new routes launched by Mexican carriers in the coming months. We have already seen US airlines add tons of flights to Cancun this winter based on huge demand from travelers looking for warmer weather. This will also have an impact on codeshare agreements. Aeromexico and Delta Air Lines can resume their joint venture. Volaris and Frontier’s codeshare agreement will return. And, Viva Aerobus and Allegiant have applied for a joint venture, but the carriers are waiting on the US Department of Transportation (DOT).
Anthony’s Take: Mexican airlines like Aeromexico, Volaris, and Viva Aerobus will likely be adding new routes to their schedules for the coming winter months. We’ll have to wait to see what these are and if US carriers will continue to add flights as well.
